The Rotary Club of Bellevue
In 1961, a group of Bellevue business people who subscribed to these ideals founded the Rotary Club of Bellevue. Today, the club has grown to become the largest Club on the Eastside, including approximately 200 business and community leaders committed to service on a local, national, and international level.

Longtime Rotarians agree that involvement is the key to getting the most out of membership. Volunteer to serve on a committee that meets your interests, to be a greeter for weekly club meetings, or to join a service project team. These activities will help you get to know your fellow club members and better understand the work of Rotary.
Rotary members meet weekly to build friendships and plan service activities. Rotary clubs are autonomous and determine their own service projects based on local needs and the interests and abilities of members. If members miss a meeting of their own club, they’re encouraged to expand their Rotary horizons by attending a meeting of any other Rotary club in the world.
Rotary clubs are nonreligious, nongovernmental, and open to every race, culture and creed. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders who share the common value of Service Above Self.
