Why Join Rotary?

When you join a Rotary club, your potential to make a difference in the world and in your community grows exponentially.  This is because you are joining a network of over 1.2 million people who take action - volunteers from all over the world who share a goal of improving others' quality of life.


Membership in a Rotary club offers you opportunities to connect with other professionals who aren't afraid to lead and are dedicated to making a difference.  Spending time with your fellow club members - whether to attend a meeting, plan a project, exchange ideas, or just have fun - can lead to lifelong friendships.  When you get involved and make connections, you will inevitably grow as a person and develop new skills.

Top Two Reasons Most People Join Rotary

The top two reasons people join Rotary are to connect with and give back to their communities.  These are the same reasons members stay in Rotary year after year.  Simply joining Rotary isn't going to change lives or make those connections though.  That happens when you get involved.  You'll shape your own experience and decide how to get the most out of your membership.

What are the Dues....and Why are there Dues?

Rotary Clubs are part of a gigantic Network.  At the top, is Rotary International.  Over 180 countries participate in Rotary programs!  Countries are divided up into Zones, which are divided up into Districts and within each District are the individual Clubs.  It's a highly organized, fantastically inspiring organization!  The Kingwood Club is part of District 7545.  There are 55 clubs in the new District!  Each Club has a President, President-Elect, Treasurer and Secretary.  Each District has a Governor, Governor-Elect, Treasurer, and Secretary.  There are other key positions within each level of the organization.  


There is so much to learn about Rotary and all the great things they do.  Many training activities, conferences, and other fun activities are held for members which help you better understand how Rotary works and how you can better help your world and community through the good works of the Rotary organization.


Each Club has dues that are paid, typically on a quarterly basis.  These dues are a combination of Rotary International dues, District Dues, Club Dues, and your meals. The Kingwood Club also collects a small amount for the Rotary Foundation and Polio Plus.  These dues accomplish a multitude of things, but in short, they help each level of the club accomplish their missions while making funds available for grants to assist clubs in achieving maximum success within their service project goals.


Rotary International Dues            $20.38

District Dues                                   $11.25

Club Dues                                        $  7.25

Rotary Foundation                         $   1.00

Polio Plus                                         $15.00

Total Quarterly Dues:                    $55.88

The 4 Way Test

Rotarians around the world pledge to use the 4-way test in their professional and personal lives.


"Of the things we say and do....


*  Is it the TRUTH?

*  Is it FAIR to all concerned?

*  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

*  Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

What is a Junior Rotarian?

The Junior Rotarian membership category was developed for those 18 years and younger. Junior Rotarian’s become part of the Rotary Club and gain valuable volunteer opportunities in our local community. 

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is a way to gain many skills that can be transferred into a workplace. Confidence, communication, responsibility, teamwork and innovation are just some of those attributes obtained by volunteering. Accruing volunteer hours is a good addition to your resume as it helps you to stand out, allowing you to network and meet new people and create more opportunities.


Most importantly, you will gain a sense of personal satisfaction and enhance your social awareness by assisting a disadvantaged person or organization.

How do You become a Junior Rotarian?

You may be invited to become a Junior Rotarian by a Rotary Member or you may contact someone within the club to ask to join. Rotary attempts to do 10-12 Service projects a year. You are not obligated to help with all of them. Some of our existing Service Projects include: Pack the Bus, Rise for Hunger, and working with Food for Preston to pack food for children at Preston County schools. 

What do you get? What do you give?

The Rotary Club of Kingwood meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Rosemary’s Thyme Restaurant at the Preston Country Club at 6:15pm to plan Service Projects. Some Service Projects may take the place of the meeting on another day of the week and at the location where the Service is being performed. We ask only that you invest in a Rotary t-shirt that you can wear when performing any Service Project. Your family members are also welcome to assist with the project and can even join under the Friends and Family Plan offered by Rotary. Junior Rotarian’s will receive a certificate each year showing the number of hours and Projects they participated in.
