WELCOME TO THE ROTARY OF REDLANDS

Thank you for visiting our web site, and welcome. Since 1920, the Rotary Club of Redlands has been active in our local and international communities following the twin mottoes “They profit most who serve best” and “Service Above Self.” Non-sectarian and non-political, the Rotary Club of Redlands welcomes good people of all walks of life and vocations who want to make the world a better place through direct action with fellow Rotarians and others. The positive energy and fellowship that flows from this effort changes lives, not the least of which are lives of the members themselves.

We’d love to host you for lunch some Thursday afternoon, or have you join us in one of our many service projects or events. Follow us on this site or on Facebook  to see what we’re up to, and shoot us an email if you’d like to join us.
Thank you – Nathan Gonzales

  • COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

    Sometimes, the availability of financial support makes the difference between a student attending college or not.

These funds are derived entirely from the Rotary Club of Redlands Foundation.
