Greetings from the President

The Rotary Club of Dearborn has been serving the Dearborn community and world since being founded in 1923. We are excitedly preparing to celebrate our 100th Anniversary in 2023! This anniversary will include a major service project in our community and special gala events. Look forward to being a part of these great opportunities by following our Facebook and Website.   Spirited serving is what we continue to share with joy and pride. Locally, we award $70,000+ in scholarships to graduating students, clean up part of the Telegraph Road corridor through Adopt-A-Highway, and support food security programs. During the COVID-19 quarantine we used a Rotary District Grant to bring meals to local front-line workers at Beaumont Hospital, and Dearborn Fire and Police departments. Globally we collaborate with other Rotary clubs to support elimination of polio from the world, literacy in Ghana, schools in Chinandega, Nicaragua and help to support Rotary International’s partnership with ShelterBox, which provides emergency shelters and other essential items to people who have lost their homes in disasters. Look around our website and explore the activities of Dearborn Rotary.  As our world has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are changing as we build on and live into, for example digital formats. We keep seeking ways to be creative with our signature and new fundraising events, so as to keep providing means to do the things we do. We welcome you to share in making the world and our community a better place to live and work. Plan to visit our club and experience firsthand how you can be part of the inspiring work of Rotary. We meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month to hear an engaging speaker and learn about opportunities for community service; and, for monthly service projects. We personally invite you to find out how you might already be a Rotarian at heart! When? Thursdays at Noon. Where? 1st Thursdays In-Person at the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce, 3nd Thursdays on Zoom. Send us a message and we can get the meeting link to you. We look forward to greeting you!
