Welcome to our Rotary Club! 

Through the efforts of Rotary clubs worldwide, we are "this close" to eradicating polio

Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in more than 34,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical regions worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto  Service Above Self.

The Milwaukie Rotary Club strives to be the best Rotary Club in Oregon and is committed to fostering a fun, educational, and service oriented environment that promotes service to local and world-wide communities, friendships, and understanding.
  • Provide service to others
  • Promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders

Buy your holiday wreath from rotary! 

Before the hectic holiday season is here, check off one item from your holiday to-do list! You know your going to buy one, maybe several for family members or business acquaintances, why not get them from us? This is our club's only Winter fundraiser, and we appreciate your support! These wreaths are 24" in diameter, and  locally assembled from greens grown on a local family farm. They will arrive fresh and ready to gift or hang! The ribbons will vary, but each wreath will be beautiful!
These wreaths are $20 and can be picked up at the Rotary Club booth at the Milwaukie Farmer's Market on Sunday, November 20th, from 9am until 2pm. For more information or to arrange an alternative pick up option, please contact club member Joel Bergman at (503) 869-6530 or jwbpdx@hotmail.com
