About Bloomington Rotary
In 1905 Paul Harris started the first Rotary Club with three other Chicago business associates to capture a friendly, small-town feeling in a club for professionals. The Bloomington Noon Rotary Club became club number 2102 when 21 business and non-profit leaders chartered it in 1961. The Club was formed to uphold the basic tenets of Rotary International including a commitment to service and ethical conduct. Local and international service defines Rotary’s character when Rotarians respond to real issues with a goal of positively impacting a community.
Rotary’s motto is Service Above Self however Rotary is more than a service organization. It is an organization where people interested in service and making an impact in their community get together to have fun, meet new friends, network, learn, and enjoy the fellowship and company of other members.
The Bloomington Noon Rotary Club meets for service opportunities and informative programs addressing topics of local and global importance. Club members also forge close relationships by participating in projects with our service partner organizations. As part of our commitment to international service, the Club sponsors high school exchange students and sponsors exchange visits with clubs in other countries.
