Rotary International is an organization of business and professional men and women united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary's best-known motto is "Service Above Self", and its secondary motto is "They profit most who serve best.”

The Rotary Club of Oak Park-River Forest has been committed to Service Above Self since its charter in 1919. In addition to supporting the goals and projects of Rotary International, Oak Park-River Forest Rotarians provide community grants to local non-profits, service awards to college-bound high school seniors, enrichment grants to high school students, and dictionaries to every 3rd grader in Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, and selected schools in the Austin community.

Join us for an afternoon of golf and fellowship and help us continue to serve our community both locally and globally.
