Visitor Information
Chartered in 1987, the Rotary Club of York-East is a proud member of District 7390.  Our 70+ members personify the very essence of service.  Rotary is a multi-faceted, global service organization, where the abundance of members’ classifications from diverse vocations and professions guarantee, in addition to the unique fellowship, the development of goodwill and world understanding, the use of high ethical standards, and a concern for the welfare of others.  In 1976, the Board of Rotary International 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 Rotarians.
Some of our many local projects include:
  • Serving lunches at Our Daily Bread
  • Safety Town Summer Camp program for children ages 3 to 7, teaching children to be safe.
  • Annual “Day of Service” including cleaning roadways and the Gold Star Garden
  • Supporting local non-profits with the York-East Rotary Golf Tournament
  • Providing scholarships to the outstanding students in York Suburban and York County School of Technology
  • Helping the needy at the Catholic Harvest Food Pantry
Our club works very closely with the Rotary Foundation to establish connections all over the world.  Many of our Rotarians have selflessly given their time and expertise by traveling on mission trips and serving numerous countries with medical aid and more.
