Visit a Rotary Club Near You

Rotary District 7980 covers the four southern counties of Southern Connecticut and is made up of 57 Rotary Clubs with almost 2,000 members. 

We are “People of Action” creating change in the world and saving lives every day while embracing the Rotary Vision:

“Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.”

Connect and Engage

Interested in giving back and creating an impact in your community and around the world? If so, we encourage you to connect, engage and visit a local club meeting near your home or place of business.

Or, better yet, join a service project and get involved in our story of Saving Lives.

Lynda Hammond, District Grants Chair, introduces how Rotary Saves Lives through the District’s Gift of Life Initiative.

Take Action

“Service Above Self”

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
