About Our Club

Chartered in 1987, the Rotary Club of York-East is a proud member of District 7390.  Our 70+ members personify the definition of service.  With enthusiasm and dedication, our members serve the community in many and diverse ways.

Since 1998, our Club has participated with Our Daily Bread to assist in serving lunches to its patrons. We have supported and provided aid to Leg Up Farm, cleaned roadways in the East York area, supported the York County Veterans Court and the Gold Star Garden.  We recognize and provide scholarships to outstanding junior and senior students from 3 school districts: York Suburban, Central York and York County School of Technology.  We have provided a means to help non-profit organizations in York County through the York County Cup, a major croquet tournament held at Revolution Stadium for several years.

Rotary has so many characteristics and activities that it is difficult to define.  It is a service club, a fellowship, an international organization, a classification of vocation and professions, the development of goodwill and world understanding, the use of high ethical standards, and a concern for the welfare of others.  The Board of Rotary International in 1976 drafted and adopted the following definition of Rotary:

“Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.”

These thirty-one words define Rotary in an easy to remember, succinct manner and make us proud to be a part of the world of Rotary.

Thinking about joining York-East Rotary?  Start the process by attending a weekly meeting at Heritage Hills Tuesday morning at 7:30.  Enjoy breakfast and fellowship prior to the weekly program.  All are welcome.
