Rotary International has released their free mobile app for your convenience.  Click below for a full list of features and direct links to download directly from the Apple app store, Google Play, and BlackBerry App World.  It’s called the Rotary Club Locator from Rotary International.
The Rotary Club Locator app helps you find a Rotary club meeting when you’re on the go.
* The “Near Me” search locates clubs within a physical radius of 100 miles. (Note: Actual driving distances may be further.)
* A keyword search for clubs. This search looks for the keyword in either the club name or meeting location address. This is useful for finding clubs that are outside of the 100-mile radius from your current location.
* A map showing a club’s location and driving directions
* The ability to save search results to a list of favorite clubs
* The ability to add a club to your phone’s contact list
* The club’s website and primary phone number, if available
* A search function to find clubs by district
You can download the App depending your device by following the following links:
