Greetings from the President

Dearborn Rotary has been serving the Dearborn community and the world for the past 94 years and we will continue that service for 95 years during my time in office. That is an incredible legacy of service that our club and our city should be very proud of. What Rotary has accomplished is monumental, but what we can and will accomplish will be even greater. The Scholarship Celebration where we awarded 23 scholarships to graduating seniors in the spring, Adopt-A-Highway where we have served for 35 years making the Telegraph corridor a more attractive Dearborn highway, The Hugh Archer Golf Outing, Santa Snaps and Big Band fund raising events that provide the means to do the things that our foundation does for the community; these things and many more make up the legacy of Dearborn Rotary.

Look around our website and notice all the activities of the Dearborn Rotary club. You will find it is the premier service club in Dearborn. If you share our desire to make the world and our community a better place to live and work, you should plan to visit our club and see first hand how you can be part of the amazing work of Dearborn Rotary.

Every Thursday we meet at Park Place Catering in Dearborn to hear an exciting speaker and share a great lunch.   I personally invite you to come check us out. Where?  Park Place Catering 23000 Park St. Dearborn MI. When? Thursday’s at 11:30 am. Can’t wait to meet you.
