Welcome to our club

We are the Mad River Valley Rotary Club with over 60 members. We are your neighbors, friends, and business acquaintances. We are young, old, women and men who love this Valley and who volunteer our time to make it an even better place to live. 

As a chapter of Rotary International, we aspire to make a difference right here in the Mad River Valley and beyond. Our commitment is to community service, building friendships, and developing leaders. Our international exchange program cultivates understanding beyond Vermont and is a life changing experience for those who participate.

All that we say, think and do is based on the four-way test:

  • Is it the truth;
  • Is it fair to all concerned;
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships;
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Through fundraisers, raffles and community events we support local organizations and global projects providing a broad range of services, from assistance for those in need, to arts and culture.

We invite you to attend a weekly meeting to learn more about Rotary and how you can help the community in which we live.
