What is Rotary?  Rotary International is the world’s first service club. There are more than 1.2 million members in over 34,000 clubs worldwide. Rotarians are volunteers who work locally, regionally and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, and promote peace and goodwill.

Located in the heart of the Souhegan Valley, the Milford Rotary Club has been serving the communities of Amherst, Lyndeborough, Milford, Mont Vernon and Wilton since 1950.

Locally, Rotarians donate their time, talents and, of course, money to improve the quality of life in our communities. We support social service agencies and other community organizations, provide academic and vocational scholarships, recognize leadership abilities of our youth and provide opportunities for youth to travel abroad for cultural exchange.

Rotary membership gives men and women an opportunity to forge new friendships and share the rewards of helping others through volunteer service. The Rotary Club meeting is a chance for members to socialize, network, and plan service activities based on local needs and their own interests and talents. In addition, Rotary clubs often team up with clubs in other countries to carry out international service projects, enhancing members’ cross-cultural understanding.

Rotary, working with its international partners for over 20 years, is on the brink of eradicating polio. Rotary is also part of a collaborative effort to provide clean water and sanitation to parts of the world where it is desperately needed. These are just two examples of the numerous international projects to which Rotarians all over the world are dedicated.
