Arthur Rotary Club serving community since 1952

The Arthur Rotary Club has been serving our community since December 4, 1952. We are part of an international service organization with the motto “Service Above Self”.

Rotary members contribute their skills, expertise, and resources to help not only our community but also are a part of helping people all over the world. Membership in Rotary also provides an opportunity to develop lifelong friendships, network with other business professionals, and make international connections.

Our club also facilitates and sponsors the Youth Exchange Program which has brought 47 young men and women from over 27 countries to our High School and into our lives. Many are still in contact with people they connected with here.

The Arthur Rotary Club is known for organizing and sponsoring the spectacular annual Arthur Fireworks Show.

This is a huge undertaking that utilizes the talents, skills of our members and collaboration with the Village of Arthur, Arthur Park Board, Arthur EMS and many others including help from other Rotary clubs.

The fireworks are our biggest fundraiser and it helps finance our many service projects and charitable request donations.

In the last 5 years alone, we have donated over $15,000. Donations to the local schools, Girls State Sponsorships, Scholarships, Eagle Scout projects, University of Illinois Extension Office/Arthur Produce Auction for the Extensions Fresh Food Project, are just a sampling of what we do with the funds we raise.

Arthur Rotary Club also provides fund to help with international projects. Arthur Rotary Club does hands on work such as helping with the school backpack program, roadside pickup and our latest event the recycling event.

Our members reflect a cross-section of the community. We welcome anyone who wants to learn more about club to reach out to a club member or e-mail us at arthurrotaryclub@gmail.com.
