Rogers Rotary is joining clubs around the world in suspending weekly meetings and projects until Rotary International feels it’s safe to bring members together again.
Please watch this site for a RE-GATHERING Celebration in a few weeks. In the meantime, please look for ways you can safely check on your neighbors and provide help to vulnerable adults.
You’re invited to participate in our 2020 Rogers Rotary Golf Tournament

After three months of testing a variety of membership-recruiting methods, we return to the original 7 a.m. meeting time. The first two weeks of each month will be at the Community Room in Rogers. Week three is a service project at CROSS Services.
Return if you couldn’t attend during the three-month trial period.
Rogers Rotary wants to be strong!
D5950 is ready to charter its first Passport Club. What are its pros and cons?
A Passport Club appeals to Rotarians who can’t conveniently gather at a meeting location. Weekly meetings are online or available to access and watch later.
Service hours are done on your own and submitted for credit. Involvement with a nonprofit, church committee, scout leader, youth coach, etc., all count.
With no meeting room rental or meal cost, the fee is $15/month — just enough to cover RI and 5950 dues.
Passport members are full Rotarians. They’re encouraged to use their passportto visit other clubs and even participate in those clubs’ projects.
There are no fundraisers. If a group of Passport members want to do a project together, the cost is self-pay shares.
The downsides are that:
– The focus is on service. Fellowship happens quarterly for this group.
– No fundraisers means no money to give away or use for reimbursement.
– Without a local identity, Passport members’ individual work is rather invisible.
However, a local group can work together and generate PR.
