Our club is proud of what it is able to do. From our foreign exchange students (currently inbound from Sweden and outbound to Japan) to our support of the Interact Club at RH Senior High, our cleanups of Calkins Road, and the Gazebos we built at Tinker Homestead and at the Rush Library. From our scholarships to our support of Camp Haccamo, the School of the Holy Childhood, Willow Domestic Violence Center, Literacy Volunteers, Kicking Hunger, and the Senior Citizen Christmas Project. From helping to eradicate polio to training future leaders. This is what we are all about!

Come for a visit and see what we do and how we do it. Check out our calendar: In the first week of each month, we meet Wednesday evening for a social event or service project. During the rest of the month, we meet Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am at the Radisson Hotel, 175 Jefferson Road, next to RIT.

About Us

Our club was chartered in April 1954.

Regular meetings of our club are held every Tuesday at the Radisson Inn in Henrietta. They are breakfast meetings that start at 7:15am and end at 8:30am. Programs are presented by individuals or groups who represent the five avenues of service.

Our members receive the national publication The Rotarian each month, and there is our own monthly newsletter. Dues are $75 per 6 months, due in December and June.

Our club is a member of District 7120 of Rotary International. A membership card facilitates visits to other Rotary clubs all over the world.

100% of our members participate in one of our special projects each year.

100% of our members contribute something to the club each month: Some examples are: giving a “happy dollar”, working as a greeter, going to a committee meeting or contributing to the HUB.

100% of our members contribute something to Rotary International every year.
