Rogers Noon Rotary is comprised of business leaders, educators, religious leaders, lawmakers, non-profit executives, and other civic-minded citizens who are interested in making a difference in the community in which we live. Above all, we are men and women who have the time and resources to commit to Rotary and its objective of “Service Above Self.”
Rogers Noon Rotary offers its members a variety of opportunities for fellowship and networking. Rogers is well known for its community volunteerism, and members of our Club are usually at the forefront of the initiatives. In an oftentimes-complex world, Rotary strives to provide one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship. Rotarian’s involvement with various committees within our club affords our members the opportunity to receive personal gratification, while learning leadership skills that carry through to their personal and professional endeavors.
