Troy Rotary was chartered September 26, 1957. The original 22 members were drawn together by the spirit of Rotary. TOGETHER we see a world where PEOPLE unite and take action to CREATE lasting CHANGE across the globe in our communities, and in ourselves.

Our membership has grown to over 50 men and women, living or working in Troy.  We welcome guests every week and encourage application to join Troy Rotary. Lasting Friendships continue and new friends are discovered.
