The Rotary Club of Gold Beach was founded on October 25, 1950 and is a very active service club. Each year every member of the Club is given the opportunity to participate in both community service projects and world service projects. Members may choose the projects or events that interest them most. They may invest as little or as much time as their schedule allows. This club has built up a solid membership core that has averaged 50-55 members for the past several years. This club and Rotary as a whole is very ‘family oriented’ and ‘fun oriented’. The club Board is constantly canvassing the community for ‘needs’ that may be addressed by the Gold Beach Rotary Club. All members are encouraged to bring real opportunities to the club for consideration.
The Rotary Club of Gold Beach is comprised of many of the community leaders, business owners, and professionals who very much enjoy the fellowship of our weekly meetings and other social events. New members who are identified having energy, enthusiasm, willingness, and skills to further Rotary’s community-oriented goals are invited to join. Rotary Club members include a cross section of the Gold Beach community leadership. The Rotary Club of Gold Beach places emphasis on education, scholarships, and health.
Participation is the key to maximizing the Rotary Experience. Many members have developed a true ‘passion’ for all things Rotary – from supporting local projects and developing youth, to supporting world service projects such as eradicating polio throughout the world or providing fresh water to a small village in Ghana, West Africa.
