The Rotary Club of Western Henrico County is an organization of 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. Through Rotary International, we are united worldwide with other Rotarians who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 200 countries worldwide, approximately 1.4 million Rotarians belong to more than 46,000 Rotary clubs.
Founded in 1984, The Rotary Club of Western Henrico County meets every Tuesday morning and is nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As an expectation of being a member of our club, each Rotarian is asked to participate in our meetings, service projects, and fundraisers. There is an opportunity for each member to choose how his/her skills fit within a wide variety of club activities. To learn more about some of our work, see the "Signature Events" page or connect with any member on our "Member Directory" under the "Club Links" pages here on our website.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
