Rotary Clubs understand that responsible leadership means more than just doing good work—it means making the most out of every donation they receive. Rotary Clubs focus their service efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.

Fort Dodge Noon Rotary meets each Monday at Noon at the Starlight Best Western located at the junction of Highway 7 and Highway 169. Additional information is available online at fortdodgerotary.com.
