President's Welcome Message

Rotary is a worldwide organization that is bound together by the primary motto of “service above self.” A club that began in Chicago in 1905 with four members has grown to an international membership of more that 1.2 million. Rotary was created to be a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.

The Rotary Club of Griffin was founded in 1924 and currently includes members practicing various professions in our community – from all areas of the legal profession, the medical profession (people and animals), technology, real estate, banking, education, finance, manufacturing, religion, insurance, agriculture, textiles, employment services, publishing, transportation, food services, retail and commercial sales, government, human care services, travel, accounting, business services, engineering, electronics and community service. We support numerous non-profit organizations in the community with donations made possible by fundraising activities, including our annual Sombrero Dash road race. Our members are active in the community, giving their time and talents to community organizations including local arts, education, civic, business and others. Please explore our website to learn more about our club.
