Reasons to Join the Bloomington Noon Rotary Club.

  1. Friendship: This is the #1 strength of Bloomington Rotary, according to a membership poll. It’s also one of the reasons Rotary International began back in 1905, and Bloomington Rotary started in 1961.
  2. Service Above Self: It’s the motto of Rotary, and it’s why we’re here. For instance, Bloomington Rotarians have committed their time and talents to mentor local high school students. Financially, we have supported a safe water project in the Dominican Republic and formation of a tutoring center for students with disabilities at Normandale Community College.
  3. Networking: Everyone needs to network. Rotarians come from all walks of life. They help each other.
  4. Personal growth: Personal fulfillment is guaranteed!
  5. Leadership development: Rotary is an organization of leaders and successful people. You, too, can learn how to motivate, influence and lead leaders.
  6. Citizenship: The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community.
  7. Continuing education: Every week, there is an opportunity to listen to different speakers ranging from government leaders to successful entrepreneurs.
  8. Fun: Each meeting, every service activity, any social event emphasizes fun.
  9. Public speaking skills: Meetings offer the opportunity to hone your speaking skills.
  10. Citizenship in the world: There are few places in the world that do not have a Rotary club. Every Rotarian is welcome to attend any of the 29,000 clubs in virtually every nation of the world.
