Welcome to Butler AM Rotary Club
Together We Can Make A Difference
Butler AM Rotary members put their passion to give back into action for Service Above Self.
You can make a difference and impact the Butler community, then you want to join us for breakfast some Tuesday morning from 7-8 AM and see whether Butler AM Rotary is the right fit for you. We meet at the YMCA, 339 N. Washington St., Butler.
Children & Youth Focused
Begun in 1997, Butler AM Rotary jumped to the forefront by building the state award-winning Purple Playground in Alameda Park. And we have not stopped since. We have raised over $850,000 in our short history and focused the majority of our work on children and youth in the community who are in need economically, educationally, or due to disability.
We are an Active Club
We are active, engaged, and don’t have meetings to “do meetings”. Our Tuesday breakfasts are energetic and are not the typical civic club meeting you might expect. We are informal and typically juggling two or more projects at once. You can choose the project(s) and the level of involvement you want to have.
Speakers are Welcomed
We have speakers who range from Presidents of local colleges to directors of agencies in the area to elected officials in the city and in Congress. We want to know what is going on in our county and learn about new initiatives /agencies/businesses to determine what they do, who they help, and whether we will support their efforts. If you would like the opportunity to speak to our members at one of our Tuesday morning meetings please use the contact form to submit your request.
We are part of Rotary International. It is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
It all began with Paul Harris, a Chicago attorney who formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, in 1905. It was a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
The Paul Harris Fellow award is given to those who donate $1000 or more to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International in their own or another person’s name. It is for tangible and significant assistance given to further understanding and friendly relations among people around the world. There are 24 such Fellows in Butler AM Rotary.
We hope you will want to join us in helping to make Butler and the world a better place!
“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.”
