         Join a network of community leaders to open doors through service
 
If you want to make a difference and expand your network of leaders, community knowledge and service opportunities, we invite you to check out the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne. 
 
When you join Rotary, you become part of a global network of community leaders who help children, fight disease, provide safe water, advance world peace and understanding and more.
 
Really.  We dream big about service.
 
A century of service and beyond 
The Rotary Club of Fort Wayne celebrated its centennial year of 2015 through …. Service!  In honor of its centennial, the club installed 100 Little Free Libraries around Fort Wayne, erected the 22-foot Rotary Cub of Fort Wayne Centennial Tower in downtown Fort Wayne, and coordinated efforts to build a middle school in Gléi Togo (West Africa), where we also have provided playground equipment, textbooks and other supplies.
 
Today, the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne’s ad hoc Second Century of Service Committee is determining strategic directions and major future projects for the coming years. 
 
Day-to-day: Beyond centennial projects, our local service efforts help kids at Washington Elementary, our “adopted school;” numerous high school leadership and scholarship projects; and the annual hosting of international students.  We also sponsor, protect and clean up the “Circle of Hope” and “Avenue of Trees” at Headwaters Park and much more.   
 
Around the world: As part of the 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide, we literally help to change the world through projects in these areas:
  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Provide clean water
  • Save mothers and children
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
 
Quality weekly programs. By joining the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne, you will learn more about your community from area leaders. Recent speakers include Mayor Tom Henry, Parkview’s Mike Packnett, Julie Inskeep of the Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne Community Schools Board President Mark GiaQuinta and many others who address our 150-plus members at weekly Monday noon meetings at Parvkiew Field.
