COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Club Activities

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Phoenix Rotary Club is temporarily suspending all in person meetings until further notice. We will reassess these measures as we work through this challenging time. In the meantime, the club is offering Zoom online meetings on the second and fourth Thursdays at 12 noon to continue to build and foster the fellowship that is the bedrock of our club. Additionally, the club board will continue to check in with members via phone on their well being and of any member needs. Valerie continues to work in the office (alone) and you can always contact her via phone 602.604.8221 or email rotary@rotary100.org with any questions or needs.

Who We Are:

Rotarians are leaders in their vocation, profession and community. We meet weekly to discuss improving the lives of people, both locally and globally. We need and encourage diversity of membership in order to be more effective in this task. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” and Rotary is an organization of over 33,000 local clubs serving their communities around the world.

Phoenix Rotary 100 was founded in 1914 as the 100th club to join Rotary. Through the years, Phoenix Rotary 100 has been at the forefront of community service in Phoenix and beyond, with a past and present membership list reading like Who’s Who in the State’s history. Mayors, governors, U.S. senators and one Supreme Court Justice have all been a part of Phoenix Rotary 100. Other famous Rotarians include: Neil Armstrong, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, Dianne Feinstein, Gerald Ford, John F. Kennedy, Charles Mayo, J.C. Penney, Manny Pacquaio, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Charles Walgreen, Sam Walton, Woodrow Wilson and Orville Wright, to name just a few.

As Rotarian Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
