WHY JOIN ROTARY?
No other local organization provides this breadth of engagement
We are Lakewood communities leaders. We converse, share ideas and take action.
Rotary is where business meets community service. Lakewood Rotary regularly brings together a large and diverse group of civic, business, and professional leaders with an interest in service, networking and fellowship.
VOLUNTEER & COMMUNITY SERVICE
We live our motto of “service above self” with impactful community involvement – both locally and internationally. We build friendships as we serve together.
We provide grants to non-profit organizations who are working to benefit our community. We also volunteer to better our local community. Some recent projects are:
- Restoring the public access to our South Sound Wildlife area
- Attend CPR training provided by West Pierce Fire and Rescue
- Helping organize so that over 20 local kids received school supplies and clothes
- Volunteering at Oysterfest with the Shelton
- Rotary and other community partners
Helping with the Ride For Courage by providing a lunch rest stop along with the Rotary Club of Puyallup and Tacoma South
Our Club activities and projects provide many opportunities to build our local networks. Through our travels and service, we also have the chance to connect with Rotarians in over 200 countries and geographic areas.
We have over 100 members and all are local business, nonprofit and professional leaders who care deeply about our community
MAKE FRIENDS & HAVE FUN
We are a social bunch. We enjoy informal happy hours, dinners at local restaurants, tailgates at sports games, symphony concerts, outdoor adventures and much more.
We constantly learn from our inspiring speakers – government leaders, business executives, nationally recognized writers, academic experts, and community organizers.
