“Service Above Self”


On behalf of the Belvidere Rotary Club, welcome to our club’s website and thank you for taking the time to visit.

Since 1925, Belvidere Rotarians have been actively involved in a wide variety of both community service and international humanitarian projects. Our club is comprised of local business and community leaders who are committed to the service of others.

Club members meet every Tuesday evening for dinner, fellowship and to plan service projects. Our two chicken barbecues and Victorian Day parking are currently our major fund raising projects for the year. Please visit the events page for a more complete listing of our activities.

If you are interested in learning more about Rotary and how you can serve our community, please feel free to contact any Rotary member.
