Welcome to Rotary International Zones 30 & 31
A community of Rotarians in the Heart of America
WE CONNECT PEOPLE
Rotary unites more than a million people
Through Rotary clubs, people from all continents and cultures come together to exchange ideas, and form friendships and professional connections while making a difference in their backyards and around the world.
WE TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES
We take action locally and globally
Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.
WE SOLVE PROBLEMS
No challenge is too big for us
For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease.
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Possibilities are all around us.
everywhere we look
we see opportunity
we see potential …. in unexpected places
And when we share our knowledge, vision and connections
We turn great ideas into action
In communities all around the world that we call home.
like transforming an old bus to feed hungry children
or providing lifesaving equipment to those who need it most.
From fighting disease to rebuilding schools.
Together, we can make real change happen
We are Rotary… We are people of action
