THE ROTARY CLUB OF BONNERS FERRY was officially chartered in 2002 and currently has a membership of 40 members. We are among the 1.2 million Rotarians in more than 32,000 Rotary clubs worldwide. Our purpose is to bring together business and professional community leaders to provide humanitarian service to others within our community and our world.

CLUB PROJECTS focus on improving literacy, enhancing educational opportunities, improving environmental conditions and assisting others in need. Some current programs include awarding of local scholarships, sponsorship of foreign exchange students, grants to Distinguished Women of Bonners Ferry (Jr. Miss), Friends of the Arts, Domestic Violence, computer-based literacy projects for local schools, financial support and participation in the school district's spelling bee, a project for clean water in Ecuador and many other worthwhile service projects. To support these projects and other efforts, fund raisers are held throughout the year including the annual Kootenai River and WaCanId Bike Rides, the SWISH 3-on-3 basketball tournament, the CommUNITY Breakfast & Silent Auction, and the very popular Calendar Raffle where anyone can conceivably win money 365 days a year.  

MEMBERS AND GUESTS meet weekly during the noon hour on Tuesdays at Mugsy's Restaurant in Downtown Bonners Ferry. We invite you to visit our club, enjoy our weekly program, and experience service above self in action.
