The Montgomery Village Rotary Club

The Montgomery Village Rotary Club has been actively assisting the community since 1982. If you are not familiar with Rotary, it is an organization that not only promotes “Service Above Self” but implements it, as well. The Montgomery Village Rotary has multiple ongoing projects and programs. The Club has a special focus on programs that promote the welfare of children and students. We also actively assist organizations that support individuals and families in need. Part of an international campaign, we are involved in Polio Plus, eradicating polio world-wide and have recently been the force behind the Basra project, providing prosthetics to amputees in war torn Iraq. The Club’s membership consists of a wide variety of professionals. The most important attribute that our members possess is a willingness to donate a small amount of time to make better, the lives of those less fortunate.
