Service above Self

The Rotary Club of Burlington engages in nearly 20 local and global service projects every year.  Typical projects range from international project such as Hands for Honduras and Pure Water for the World, to important projects in our local community such as honoring Burlington's fine Police Force, awarding medals to some very special athletes at the Special Olympics of Vermont Summer Games, and beautification of Burlington's Gateway and City Hall Park.  The list goes on and on.  Service above Self is more than a slogan; it is a way of life for the Rotary Club of Burlington and 32,000 Rotary Clubs around the world.

Why Join?

The Rotary Club of Burlington offers a way to experience Burlington's rich civic and city life while expanding one's international scope.  The cornerstone of the club is Monday's weekly luncheon meeting featuring distinguished speakers and other activities, events and community projects.  You will build friendships among business, civic, and professional leaders who share interest in Burlington, but also have a global outlook.  You will be enriched and educated by stimulating speakers on topics of local, national and international interest.  Members and their service projects support the City of Burlington, Chittenden County, the State of Vermont and international communities through philanthropy and volunteer projects.

Membership in Rotary will help one expand global understanding through a diverse fraternity,  welcoming visitors from Rotary's 32,000 clubs world-wide, scholarship exchange programs and Rotary travel opportunities.  The objective of The Rotary Club of Burlington is to promote a peaceful, prosperous, just and sustainable world in partnership with Rotary Clubs World-wide.

Come join us any Monday at noon at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Burlington and see if Rotary membership is for you.  Come be a part of the 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders from more than 200 countries who are dedicated to the advancement of international understanding and who are providing humanitarian service and building goodwill and peace in the world.
