Become a Eugene Southtowne Rotary Member

become a member

Thank you for considering Rotary membership!

Becoming a Rotary member provides awesome opportunities to make a contribution in your own community and in communities around the world.

There is no “typical” Rotary member anymore. Rotary has changed dramatically over the years. Rotarians are business, professional, and community leaders from all walks of life. We meet regularly to plan and implement community service projects and network with each other.

There are plenty of opportunities for personal development and camaraderie with fellow Southtowne Rotarians. This is where you can build bonds and friendships that last a lifetime! We enjoy supporting each other. We plan many social activities including wine tastings, golf outings, family picnics, bbqs, theater engagements and Christmas parties. Almost every Southtowne Rotarian participates in our annual fundraising event…the Wine and Salmon Festival.

Rotary members also have the opportunity to build international understanding through scholarships, exchange programs, and humanitarian grants. Throughout the world, Rotary clubs participate in broad range of educational, intercultural, and humanitarian activities designed to improve the lives of others. More than 1.2 million men and women in over 200 countries and geographical areas belong to over 33,000 Rotary clubs.

The first step in deciding whether you’d like to become a Rotary member is by visiting our club during lunch one Thursday afternoon.

Our club meets every Thursday at noon at:
The Eugene Vet’s Club
1626 Willamette Street
Eugene, OR 97405

If you’d like to come, contact a Southtowne Rotarian or if you don’t know one, contact us and someone will be in touch with you. Or just show up! We’ll figure it out.

Our weekly meetings feature informative speakers, a lot of laughs, and the BEST food of any club in the city (or perhaps state!) Lunch is $15 or you can have dessert and coffee for $9.

If you have already visited and are interested in applying for membership, you can download an application now or pick one up at a meeting. Once you’ve applied, your application is considered by Southtowne leaders and members. Once approved, you become a “red badge” member, which means you have a few things to do before becoming a full “blue badge”, most of which entail getting to know our club, your fellow members, and participating in a few local activities and programs. Don’t worry! You are guided along the way by our friendly membership team.
