It's fun to be a Rotarian! Meetings and social events are full of laughter and camaraderie, and service projects we sponsor enhance quality of life in our community and beyond.

Rotary, the world's first service club, was founded February 23, 1905 by Paul Harris and three of his friends. The name was derived from the practice of rotating meetings among members' offices. Ripon's club was admitted by Rotary International April 1, 1922. At that time there were 1,145 clubs in 26 countries.

Today Rotary is a growing organization of well over one million volunteer professional men and women worldwide. Best described by the motto "Service Above Self," Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and build universal peace and goodwill. Rotary International is the association of more than 27,000 clubs in 150 countries. Clubs meet weekly engage in various service activities. Current areas of focus include access to water, literacy, drug abuse prevention, childhood immunization, and helping youth and the elderly.

Object of Rotary

We encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Code of Conduct

As a Rotarian, I will:
  1. Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life
  2. Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect
  3. Use my professional skills through Rotary to mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve people's quality of life in my community and in the world
  4. Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians
  5. Not seek special business or professional advantages from other Rotarians
