The Rotary Club of Milan is a service organization that acts globally and locally. We are part of Rotary International, a world wide entity with an excellent reputation for positive change in the world.
Membership in Rotary provides a close connection to the community, professional networking, learning about new ideas and activities, and an opportunity to participate in service projects, both locally and international.
We meet on Tuesdays at noon at the Presbyterian Church in Milan, and meetings with lunch, are complete at 1 P.M.. Usually once a month is a business meeting, and the other meetings involve a speaker, on a wide variety of topics coordinated by our members representing many facets of our community.
