SERVICE ABOVE SELF
Rotary meets every Wednesday at noon at Peppino's Restaurant at 5065 Lake Michigan Drive.
The Allendale Rotary Club was chartered in 2008 and has been working ever since to make the Allendale community an even better place to live by providing funding for many local endeavors such as Allendale Music Boosters, Engine House no. 5 Foundation, Manna Meals, Allendale Robotics Team, Allendale Splash Pad, Amazing Reading Bus, Allendale Equestrian Club, Allendale Rocketry Club, Allendale Community Field Day, and many more! Through the support of our members and the financial assistance of local businesses and individuals, we have given away thousands of dollars in sponsorships, donations, and scholarships. We are incredibly thankful for a supportive community and we look forward to giving back at every opportunity!
WHEN DO WE MEET?
The Allendale Rotary club has allowed me the opportunity to give back to the community in which I live and work. The club supports many local projects that effect kids, education and thrives on needs based giving. Being a smaller club, each member has a say in where every dollar of what we raise is allocated. The personal connections and friendships I have made over the 7 years I have been a member in the club, have been influential in my personal focus on philanthropy.
I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve the community through the Rotary Club. It is important to me to take care of our community through volunteering. I like that my children can join me for events, like concerts in the park and witness the passionate members of Rotary working together for a good cause. Rochell Prahl
WHERE/WHEN DOES ROTARY MEET?
We meet most Wednesdays at 12PM at Peppino's Restaurant at 5065 Lake Michigan Drive in Allendale.
HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT ROTARY?
Please feel free to stop by one of our meetings. Sometimes we have a speaker and sometimes we just meet to discuss club business but we always welcome guests (and you get a free lunch!)
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone and everyone! If you are interested in joining, please fill out our Membership Application.
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT EVERY WEEK?
No problem! Come when you can.
I joined Rotary as my way to give back to the Community. It is a wonderful group of individuals that truly care to make the Community and the World a better place Laurie Richards
