Welcome from President

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bowling Green, Kentucky!  Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  Because of Rotary International’s leadership, Polio has virtually been eradicated around the globe.

Established in 1920, the Bowling Green Rotary Club’s 160 members are the leaders of the community.  Rotary’s motto Service Above Self is the basis of all our good work.  The Club’s strong emphasis on education is evident at both local and international levels.   In 2010, we made a commitment to our third group of Adopt-a-Class students. The Adopt-a-Class program focuses on at-risk students, who might not receive the same opportunities as other students.  The program sponsors a local fifth-grade class and provides each student with a Rotary mentor and guidance until the student reaches college age. At the time of the student’s high school graduation, he or she is eligible for a full scholarship that includes tuition, books and housing to Western Kentucky University or a local technical school.  Internationally, the Bowling Green Rotary Club has contributed funding in support of the renovation of the Rukanga Library and Community Center in Kasigau, Kenya, and provided school fees for needy students and building projects.

While service is at the heart of our Club, we also offer great weekly programs for our members.  We meet each Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. at the Bowling Green Country Club (251 Beech Bend Road) for a buffet lunch, great guest speakers, and a chance to visit with our Rotary friends.  If you are a visiting Rotarian, please come see us and enjoy our meeting.  If you are a prospective member, learn more about the membership recruitment process on this web site or contact any of our members.

We look forward to your visit!
