Hello & thank you for visiting our club’s website. We are excited to share with you what Rotary International means to us!

The Lawndale Rotary exists to serve both local and international needs. Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 2+ million of Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary Clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.

Rotary Clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations. If you are interested, please join us!

We are a part of District 5280 and are excited to have Greg O’Brien serve as our District Governor for 2016-2017.

Lawndale Rotary Chartered May 13, 1952 first in the Rotary World to have 100% Benefactors.

The object of Rotary is “o encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.” Each Rotarian practices and preaches this 4-way Test.
1.  Is it the TRUTH?
2.  Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4.  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
