Rotary International is a worldwide service organization dedicated to bringing business and professional leaders together for the purpose of advancing peace, goodwill, and philanthropy through humanitarian initiatives.
Founded by Chicago attorney Paul P. Harris in 1905, Rotary International has since grown to over thirty thousand member clubs on six continents, and with a total of more than one million individual members known as "Rotarians." The name "Rotary" is derived from the practice of the first Rotary clubs of rotating their meeting location between the offices of each member.
The Dover Colonial Rotary Club is a non-political and non-sectarian organization of people who share a passion for community service, volunteerism, and fellowship. We meet weekly on Friday mornings at the Maple Dale Country Club for a hot breakfast buffet social, followed by a brief presentation from a guest speaker on varying topics of interest to Rotarians and our community. We also participate in various volunteer activities and events throughout our community, as well as engage in fundraising for worthy causes.
Our club accepts new members by invitation and accommodates both individual and corporate memberships. If you would like to find out more about the Dover Colonial Rotary Club and how you can become a part of it, please feel free to contact us directly.
