Troy Rotary was chartered September 26, 1957. The original 22 members were drawn together by the spirit of Rotary. 

Our membership has grown to over 40 men & women, living or working in Troy. Lasting Friendships continue and new friends are discovered. Fun and fellowship events as well as fundraisers and volunteer work are planned and executed, exemplifying team work at its best. As members of the premier service club in Troy, Rotarians live the motto of "Service Above Self" the motto that strengthens Rotarians to address the challenges in today's world.
