Rotary Membership offers World-class Opportunities

Rotary has a long tradition as being mostly singing clubs.  However; the Rotary Club of Kearney Dawn was chartered strictly as a “Non-Singing Club”.  It is actually written into our club bylaws that we won’t sing at our meetings.  Our founding members moved from the Monday Noon club with explicit reason not to sing.  It’s kind of a funny story.

“My favorite thing about Rotary is that it’s an efficient use of my time. All at once, I’m creating new friendships, making new business contacts, learning how my community works, and participating in the world.”

Membership in the club provides opportunities for both fellowship and community service. The roster of club members represents a dynamic cross-section of the leadership in our community.

Prospective members are usually engaged as a proprietor, partner, corporate officer or manager; they might hold a position in an executive capacity; or act as the local agent or branch representative of a worthy and recognized business or profession. In addition, they should be of good character and have a good business and professional reputation.  Prospective members would need a Rotarian sponsor for membership.

If you have an interest in community involvement, we would like you to join us in making a difference in our community. If you are interested in membership, the contact us section provides a means for you to get in contact with someone who will provide you with additional information.

Buffalo County Community Partners

What are we all about anyway?

Our community health status improvement initiative, Buffalo County Community Partners, is a county-wide effort located in central Nebraska. Kearney is the county seat and comprises 31,790 of the 46,102 people who live in Buffalo County. The county relies on agriculture, industry, and tourism to stimulate growth of the county. Buffalo County Community Partners was one of the first projects of its kind in Nebraska. Community Partners draws upon old-fashioned grassroots problem-solving, as well as looking to the latest in community architecture, to knit our community together into a creative, future-oriented, inviting place to live and work.

Our mission is to assess, promote, and strengthen the health of Buffalo County.

Our vision is that everyone from all corners of Buffalo County work together to improve the quality of life of those who live in and work in this community.  Learn more at http://www.bcchp.org

What is Rotary?

Rotary brings together our community leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations to share their ideas for making the world a better place. By combining their distinct skills and expertise, Rotary members are tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems – from local initiatives like feeding the hungry to global efforts like eradicating polio.
