Learn about the benefits of Rotary. Get Involved!


The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island, Washington, is a group of men and women with a common belief that we can make a difference in our community and our world. As Rotarians, we pledge to practice the ideal of “Service above Self”. Our club has actively served the Bainbridge Island community since 1947. With the help of other Rotary Clubs and Rotary International, we have also worked on numerous international service projects.

Please take a few minutes to look through our web site and learn more about our history, accomplishments, and our community and international service efforts.

The Object of Rotary

  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world of fellowship of business and professional individuals united in the ideal of service.

The Four-way Test
