About The Rotary Club of The Woodlands

The main objective of Rotary is SERVICE - in the community and throughout the world. Rotarians build goodwill and peace, provide humanitarian service, and encourage high ethical standards in all vocations. The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self" and based  upon the following Four Pillars:

1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Business and professional men and women in our area comprise The Rotary Club of The Woodlands. We welcome you to consider joining our outstanding group of leaders making a difference in our community.

The Rotary Club of The Woodlands is committed to serving the community and to fellowship and friendship among its members at our weekly lunch meetings. Our Rotarians who find their service most rewarding are those who get involved in any of the myriads of projects available. We ring bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas, collect food and funds for the Montgomery County Food Bank, deliver weekly senior meals for Meals on Wheels, conduct literacy campaigns, donate blood, support foster children, and provide thousands of dollars in scholarships every year through our Student of the Year program and Lone Star Montgomery County. Contact your Conroe ISD Career Counselor or Lone Star Financial Aid office for scholarship details.

And we have fun!  We've joined the YMCA Dragon Boat races every year. 

Most importantly, membership in The Rotary Club of The Woodlands guarantees you a close group of friends, first, and business associates second, that you can count on. And, as a Rotarian, you can go to any Rotary Club anywhere in the world, and find immediate camaraderie and friendship, the next best thing to be
