Who We Are

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Lakewood Ranch.  Our club was chartered on April 20, 2001.  Since that time we have grown from 26 members to over 80 members. 

At Rotary, we believe in the 4-Way Test.  We are compassionate, generous, accomplished and we believe in "Service Above Self." We are a global organization bringing together 1.2 million Rotarians supporting humanitarian efforts around the world.  Rotary accomplishes this through the actions of its members and their local connections to solve problems through district and global projects in six areas of focus. Which include promoting peace, fighting disease, providing for clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. 

What We Do

Our club embodies these ideals above in everything we do and we have a very rich and accomplished history to be proud of.   Locally, through our efforts with the Suncoast Food and Winefest and Books for Kids, and Globally, through our efforts with Shelter Box USA and the many Global Clean Water Projects we support.  We embody "Service Above Self" and strive to make a difference in the world.  

The Rotary Club of Lakewood Ranch is a group of professional and retired men and women who meet for lunch each week for fellowship and to discuss current local and international topics as well as various issues relevant to the practice and promotion of Rotary ideals in our business and personal lives.  We are an amazing club and we can continue to accomplish great things with your help.  

Today, we are involved in numerous projects in our community and around the world and have given more than $1.5 million to support various charitable organizations through our efforts in the Suncoast Food and Winefest. By partnering with other Rotary Clubs Globally we have helped raise over $2 million for Global Clean Water Projects.  

If you would like to be part of a dynamic club and want to put your talents to use by making a difference, then we invite you to take a look at our club and even visit one of our lunch meetings.
