Our Club is always welcoming new members!
Peterborough Rotary Club has supported our community for over 90 years. We are a leadership development and service organization right in our community. Our group is made up of thoughtful and caring individuals who happen to be community leaders, local business owners, and local professionals. Many of our members also participate in other local service organizations like the Boy Scouts, Daughters of the American Revolution, Windy Row Learning Center, Monadnock Art X, The River Center, Mariposa Museum, Monadnock Center, just to list a few.
Our focus is uplifting and supporting our youth. We accomplish youth support through Rotary Youth Exchange, Scholarships, Camp QUEST, Operation Santa, Four Way Test Speech Contest, and ConVal InterACT. We raise funds to support these endeavors through the annual Pancake Breakfast and the Cruz-In. Finally, we support and maintain Rotary-Wilder Park in Peterborough.
