The Rotary Club of Jackson was started 45 years ago to serve to benefit our fellow citizens. We are a service organization, built on friendship and community involvement, and clearly focused on working to make our communities better places for all our neighbors. We are a part of Rotary International, which focuses its international efforts in six areas: promoting peace, preventing diseases, providing access to clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, and helping communities develop.

Every club member has joined and participates in our local activities because we want to give back to our communities and our society.

We are joining the Howell Chamber in order to broaden our horizons, and expand our chances to help others, if we are able.
