Do you enjoy helping others and making a difference in your community? If so, Rotary International may be just for you!

The Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to offer an informational luncheon on behalf of Rotary International, on Wednesday, April 29th at Windsor Woods Community Center, 1135 West Superior Street in Wayland. The event will take place from 11:30am – 1:00pm. Anyone interested in this exciting possibility coming to the Wayland area is encouraged to attend.

Rotary International is a large service club that involves more than 1.2 million members around the world in projects that make an important difference in each member’s community, and also offers the chance to be a part of global change and transformation.  There are more than 32,000 clubs around the world that are doing things like building playgrounds, offering scholarships, filling backpacks with food for children from families in need, and much more.   Rotary Clubs are collaborative, and in many communities they work hand in hand with other service clubs like Kiwanis, Lions, or others.   In underdeveloped countries, Rotary members are working on projects like water filtration in places where clean water is a major challenge, and Rotary has been a leader in helping to eradicate polio in the few places in the world where it is still a significant problem.  The list of things that Rotary members are involved in is almost as long as the various interests that Rotary members bring to the table to make things better and to help others in important ways.

What if there was a Rotary Club in Wayland?  At one time, there was.  Come be part of a discussion about the possibility of creating a new Rotary Club, and an opportunity to learn about Rotary from some of the region’s leaders, including the current District Governor Robert Small, and the District Governor for the coming year, Rick Briscoe.  There are nearly 60 clubs in west and southwest Michigan.  Some are large, and some small.  But all are making a difference, and helping to make things better, one community at a time, and throughout the world.

This could be a historic discussion for Wayland -and a beginning for something quite exciting.  We hope you’ll join us, and bring your ideas!  For additional information on Rotary International, please contact Rotary member Brent Larson at To register for the luncheon, please visit (select Our Community, then scroll to Calendar of Events).
