Founded in 1905 as a business networking group, Rotary International is now the world’s most prominent service organization, with 1.2 million members focusing efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. The business initiative supplements the service and friendship aspects of Rotary.
“Rotarians are people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures who share a passion for service,” said Jeannie Tsukamoto, membership chair of Rotary District 7470, which consists of 48 area clubs. “Currently, we have over 85 enthusiastic, dedicated and humanitarian service-driven Rotarians in Madison. We network, discuss the needs of our community and take tangible action, while sharing business expertise and enjoying friendship. We are excited to grow our membership through business networking and local service projects, including End Hunger 3.6, Community Shredding, Camp Merry Heart, Gift of Life, and many more.”
Madison Rotary holds weekly breakfast and lunch meetings on Thursdays at 7:47 a.m. at the Madison Area YMCA, and at 12:15 p.m. at Rod’s Steakhouse and Seafood Grill, Convent Station.
