EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Rotary Clubs in our area are looking for people interested in becoming involved in their community, making new friends and networking to further their personal and business opportunities.  By joining your local Rotary Club, you will become part of a worldwide network of people who come together to make the world a better place to live, and enjoy the camaraderie of like-people at the same time.

Rotary is the world’s oldest established international volunteer charitable organization.  It is almost 110 years old, and has 1.2 million members in over 200 countries all over the globe.

Rotarians are men and women of all walks of life who join together for projects that benefit humanity both locally and around the world, and have a good time doing it.

Some of the local projects by Rotary Clubs include support for youth programs, local and regional food pantries, community beautification projects, education, healthcare, homeless persons, families affected by domestic abuse, persons with disabilities and scholarships.

Your local Rotary Club meets weekly in a restaurant in or near your community. Some clubs meet for breakfast, some for lunch and others for dinner.  The meetings are slightly over an hour in length, and combine a business portion with time to enjoy a meal together followed by a presentation by a variety of interesting speakers.

Rotary is an inclusive organization that provides humanitarian services and welcomes members regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation or national origin.
