Helena Rotary Moves to the Montana Club

After several months of holding meetings by Zoom, the Rotary Club of Helena is meeting in person once again at its new home, the Montana Club.  The club invites new and existing members to join us for lunch every Wednesday at noon at our new location, 24 W. 6th Avenue in Helena.  
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad. Our motto is, “Service Above Self.”
For over one-hundred years, the Rotary Club of Helena has led service projects for our community. Some of their current projects include the construction of an ADA-compliant trail on Mount Helena, maintaining a cabin at the YMCA Camp Child, supporting the robotics and after-school programs at Exploration Works, and providing resources to children and classrooms in Helena area public schools. We also offer an annual scholarship to college-bound high students from our community. At meetings, members share news about completed and upcoming service opportunities and each week features a new and interesting speaker.  
For more information, join us for lunch any Wednesday at noon at the Montana Club or contact Tony Zammit, Club President: (509) 993-2933.
