Welcome to the Rotary Club of Elizabeth

Founded in 1917, our Club has been a model of “Service above Self” for 103 years. During that time we have raised and donated over 1.5 million dollars in Scholarships to local students and Grants to local Charitable Organizations. In addition, we have provided over 25,000 dictionaries to third grade students in the cities of Elizabeth and Hillside.  
 
While we have a deep commitment to the City of Elizabeth, we strongly support the Rotary International Foundation, especially Polio Plus. Since 1986, Rotary International and its partners have immunized 2.5 billion children around the world against that crippling disease. Our Club has also contributed to disaster relief efforts around the world. 

I begin my third term as Club President with a challenge I never anticipated, COVID-19. Our meetings for the present time will be held online and we will have to make unprecedented changes in our fundraisers. We will adapt and come out of this pandemic stronger than ever. I have great faith in the commitment of my fellow Elizabeth Rotarians as I have for the past 32 years. 

Enjoy your visit to our website!
Yours in Rotary,  
Ken Richuso, President 
2020-2021
