Welcome to the Rotary Club of Knoxville

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Knoxville,
July 1, 2017 marks the beginning of the 101st year of the Rotary Club of Knoxville. Last year we successfully celebrated our Centennial year. As the oldest service club in Knoxville, we are proud and excited to begin another century of service. Our club of 180 Knoxville business professionals has a long history of supporting education with four-year scholarships to local students, teacher of the year rewards and stocking 600+ new books for the Beaumont Magnet Elementary School’s Library. Other local projects include supporting Free Flu Shot Saturday, Tennessee School for the Deaf, and promoting local Arts to Knoxville youth. We’ve recently starting a nursing school in Zimbabwe and are in the process of building a dam to provide water for a Zimbabwe community of 1,000. We continue to support projects in South Africa and are initiating the building of a new school in Mauritania.
These are exciting times for Rotary internationally for we are close to eradicating Polio from our world, and Rotary continues to grow and become known as the best humanitarian service organization on our planet.
If you are looking for a place to network with leaders, put service above self and enjoy the company of some exceptional people, we welcome you to attend our meeting any week that works for you. Come help us make the next 100 years as successful for our club as the first 100.

It's time for the Beaumont Book Club again!

Rotary Club of Knoxville will be reading and discussing books with Beaumont Magnet Academy students again this year on most Wednesdays from 8/24 to 12/14 at the following times:
Grades K-1:  4:00-4:30
Grades 2-3:  4:30-5:00
Grades 4-5:  4:00-4:45

If you have had a background check: Sign up for Volunteer slots!
Beaumont has requested that, when possible, the same volunteer do both Grades K-1 at 4:00-4:30 and Grades 2-3 at 4:30-5:00, rather than a different volunteer for each time slot.
