ABOUT US

We’re an international SERVICE club with 1.2M members worldwide, not a social club. Being a social is a byproduct of what we do to help our community and those less fortunate throughout the world. Rotary provides networking opportunities although that wasn’t the goal of Paul Harris.

If you are looking for ways to engage with business men and women committed to serving our community and our world we invite you to become one of 1.2 million Rotarians around the world by joining The Rotary Club of St. Petersburg, the largest and oldest service club in our community.

We invite you to visit us at our Friday meetings at noon at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.  It would be our pleasure to have you as a guest. If you would like more information, contact us today!

What is Rotary?

Each spring the Rotary Club of St. Petersburg Charitable Trust distributes trust investment proceeds to worthy non-profit organizations.  Specific requirements and eligibility are on page one of the application.  You may download the application here.  Please use the “Contact Us” tab for any questions.

Rotary’s Guiding Principles

Rotary’s guiding principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of our club’s activity.

“WHATEVER ROTARY MAY MEAN TO US, TO THE WORLD IT WILL BE KNOWN BY THE RESULTS IT ACHIEVES.”

– PAUL P. HARRIS

 

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on February 23, 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
