Join the members of the Rotary Club of Providence
for a truly Gala evening to support the vital cause of
literacy education in the Providence Public Schools.

As our world begins getting back to normal, the Rotary Club of Providence is offering lots of opportunities for members to engage in community service and enjoy the company of friends. (If you're not a member, but you see something that interests you here, why not get in touch and talk about becoming a Rotarian?)
 
 
The Legends for Literacy Gala, our major fundraising event set for Oct. 26, brings legendary athletes and other celebrities together with donors and friends to help build literacy among the public school students of Providence. Everyone is welcome to support this essential cause by volunteering on a committee or attending the event.
 
 
The Providence Rotary Good Works Committee held its first hands-on service project of the year, assembling classroom supplies for teachers and students at our partner school, Harry Kizirian Elementary. Got an idea for a service project, or just want to help? Contact Mary Brewster or Karen Mueller.
 
 
Each year (except last year of course) we get a group together for a Providence Bruins game at the Dunk. This year we'll be adding a PC Friars game. Members and friends are welcome, as are donations that let us bring along a bunch of inner city kids on a fun outing. Contact Anthony Landi to get involved.
 
 
Rotary After Dark returned on August 18 with a visit to the downtown Providence pedestrian bridge. The next Rotary After Dark event is set for Thursday, September 23 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the TROOPTOP at the WaterFire Arts Center at 475 Valley Street, Providence. Plenty of parking. Enjoy a drink from the Roof Top bar! Look for more events through the year, and plan to bring a friend who might be interested in joining the club. Got an idea for a fun location? Contact Liz Messier.
 
 

Founded in 1911, the Rotary Club of Providence is a fellowship and service organization of men and women dedicated to the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. We are one of over 35,000 clubs in more than 150 countries, with over 1.2 million members.

We serve the local community with active support for literacy and other needs related to children.
 
Our wide-ranging partnership with Providence's Harry Kizirian Elementary School includes placing a small library in each classroom through the generosity of a longtime member, having Rotarians read to students, and a beautification effort with Rotarians adding brightly colored paint along the corridors and creating an imaginative mural based on student drawings in the main lobby.
 
Proceeds from club fundraising activities support the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation, which distributes grants totaling more than $50,000 each year to the Childhood Literacy Initiative and local agencies serving children.
 
Our weekly meetings feature interesting speakers and opportunities for members and guests to socialize. Fellowship activities include a bowling league, a book club and parties for almost any occasion.
 
If you're interested in serving your community and adding enjoyment to your life through the company of like-minded men and women, we're interested in meeting you! Click here to learn how you can become a Providence Rotarian.
