Welcome to the Monmouth-Independence Rotary Club
|Monmouth-Independence Rotary Mission
Our mission is to promote fellowship, service, high ethical standards, world understanding, and peace through the works of local business, professional, and community leaders.
The Monmouth-Independence Rotary Club is affiliated with Rotary International as a member of district 5100, which is a part of the 100 year old service organization. Our local club was founded in 1960.
Since that time, we have strived to serve our club and our community through presentation of interesting meeting programs; sponsoring foreign exchange students to live in other countries and hosting students from other lands; promoting literacy by distributing hundreds of dictionaries to every fourth grade student in our district; cleaning highway 99W, constructing civic improvements, and many other worthwhile projects. We also enjoy friendships by sharing dinners, shows and other social events throughout the year.
We welcome new members: Membership Information
Come see us at our weekly meeting. Every Thursday at the meeting room of the First Baptist Church, across the street from Central High School.
One of our annual accomplishments is our sponsorship of Rotary Youth Exchange students, both inbound and outbound. Our 2017-18 outbound student is McKyla Jackson who is spending the year in Finland.
