The Genesee Valley Rotary Club, founded in 1977, is one of 35,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries in every corner of the world. Our club, like every other, is made up of individuals who work towards making their communities a better place and look upon working with other fellow Rotarians throughout the world to bring peace through service.
Our club of 40+ members meets weekly at Tuesday noon at the Redwood Steakhouse for lunch, fellowship, to discuss upcoming projects and to be informed by an invited guest speaker.
