The Shared Benefits and
Energies of Your Local Rotary Club...
Fayette Rotary Club
Fayette Rotary Club is one of a number of volunteer organizations which
seek to improve the quality of our lives and the lives of others. We
seek ways which will support and cooperate in meeting the needs of
Fayette and our nation, as well as a host of international programs.
Rotary has made significant contributions in healthcare, education,
international scholar exchange, food programs, youth programs and other
challenges which are presented to us. We welcome those of our community
who have common interests to inquire about our local club and the
expectation of members.

relief, and environmental issues, to name just a few areas of Rotarian
activity. Through participation in these projects, members experience

them in serving others.

hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days.
