Many of Rotary International's global programs were started at the local Rotary Club level.  By leveraging the connections of Rotary International these local programs have grown to be a force of global good.  By becoming a Fair Lawn Rotarian, you have the ability to make a difference throughout the world.  Since 1948 Fair Lawn Rotary has taken part in the many important moments in Fair Lawn's history and have helped shape the lives of people we know and don't know, locally, nationally, and internationally.  We have created strong bonds within Fair Lawn, throughout the region, and the across the globe.  Fair Lawn Rotarians are strong supporters of our local community we call home and are always seeking ways to improve not only our part of the world but the entire world.
