About Our Club

You have found the Lebanon Rotary Club which was chartered in 1955. The club meets every Wednesday from noon to 1:00pm at The Edward C. Allworth Veterans Home in Lebanon Oregon at 500 North Fifth Street.

You probably have an interest in Rotary if you have come this far, so... "Why become a Member of Lebanon Rotary?"

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST - The development of fellowship as an opportunity for service;

"Sitting down for weekly Rotary luncheon meeting with Lebanon business leaders provide opportunities never imagined." Gus Arzner - Lebanon Aquatic District Director

SECOND - High ethical standards in business and professions;

"The second object of Rotary speaks to the heart of not only how we do business but how we live. Serving out community and following high ethical standards in our business not only makes good business sense, it makes us better people and better citizens." Warren Beeson - Owner of Gravagraphics

THIRD - The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

"The more we see of the world, the more fortunate we realize we are. Volunteering in ones community is a way of acknowledging our good fortune in a tangible and rewarding way." Kent Haworth - Coldwell Banker Valley Brokers

FOURTH - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideals of service;

"Participation in the rotary exchange program, hosting students and having a daughts go to Brazil as an exchange student has reminded me of how small the world really is and how the hearts of all people seek the same things: love, acceptance, peace, laughter, and camaraderie." Deb Vanover - Chaplain of Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital.
