Welcome to the Minneapolis South Rotary Club.
Our club’s motto is Strength in Diversity – and our membership embodies that motto.  Rotary is not just for white, male, Republicans.  We are a diverse body of community-minded citizens from all walks of life:  culturally, racially, age-wise, gender-wise and yes, even politically.
What, then is Rotary?  It’s an international organization with multiple facets.  We promote ethics in business. We serve our community through local and international projects.  We believe in the power of learning.  We network in our club and in the greater world of Rotary.  We have fun.  We share our gifts freely – the international Rotary theme for 2018-2019 is Be the Inspiration. 
As a member-based organization of interested persons and local professionals we have a common bond of service and fellowship.   Our club is just one small part of the 1.2 million members worldwide.
We of the Minneapolis South Rotary Club are particularly focusing on working with youth both locally and internationally.  We host and sponsor High School exchange students through Rotary Youth Exchange, we provide area schools with supplies and make sure kids have hats and gloves.
We can also sponsor master-level students who are getting degrees in fields of study that will impact one of Rotary’s six areas of focus:  Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing Clean Water, Saving Mothers and Children, Supporting Education, and Growing Local Economies.
Our project this year, and the most ambitious in recent years, is bolstering math and science education for young girls in Assam, India, with the addition of hands-on application as they learn.
Think of what we can accomplish when each of our 1.2 million members work to serve others in education, water and sanitation, health, disease prevention, and economic and community development.
Come for a visit, join for a cause and create a better world.  Lets make a difference together!
We have a place for you.
