What is Rotary? 

On a GLOBAL level:

We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.

We have identified specific causes to target to maximize our local and global impact. At the same time, we understand that each community has its own unique needs and concerns. Through our network of resources and partners, we help clubs focus their service efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.

About the Monticello Rotary Club

The Monticello Rotary Club was started in 1924. We meet every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the River Edge Restaurant in Mongaup Valley. (*Occasionally we meet elsewhere.)
