Rotary International

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. The world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed in 1905. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

The Rotary Club of Aurora, IL

The Rotary Club of Aurora, chartered on March 13, 1923, has operated continuously since that time.  During those years our club members, leading citizens from our community, have given and continue to give expression to our motto “Service Above Self”. 

During the year, the club has a few fundraisers to support the club’s giving to the local and international organizations. Our main fundraiser is our annual Festival Of Lights Event.

 Due to the current pandemic, our meeting schedule has changed.  Please check the Event Calendar for our most up to date information.
Event Calendar


Our typical meeting starts at noon with lunch and around 12:15pm an informal meeting is conducted with general announcements and introductions of visiting Rotarians and guests. Then, the Sergeant-At-Arms provides levity with humorous stories from the general membership, and assesses fines that help defray club expenses.


Member dues and meal expenses are billed quarterly.


Rotarian birthdays are celebrated each month and members are asked to contribute $1.00 to the Club Foundation for each year they are celebrating.
