Dear Visitor,
Welcome to the Lake Chelan Rotary Club!  Rotary began in Chicago over 115 years ago in 1905.  Our own club was founded eleven years later in 1926.  Since then, local Rotarians have been following the motto of “Service above Self” for generations to build up our local community as well as communities abroad.
You will find us in the Lake Chelan valley helping seniors with ramps and handholds, in the Manson and Chelan schools giving annual scholarships, and in Kenya building schools, bathrooms, and water tanks for rural villages.
Internationally, Rotary is a service organization composed of 1.4M neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Are you interested in learning more about an organization of “people of action” who create lasting change?  If so, please email me and plan on attending one of our lunch meetings to learn more.
This year’s international theme is “Imagine Rotary”.  I invite you to imagine yourself in Rotary today!
Warm regards,
Guy Evans
Rotary Club of Lake Chelan President, 2022-2023

Rotary Causes

The work of Rotary begins in the community, and every community has its own unique needs and concerns. While we serve in countless ways, we’ve focused our efforts on seven Causes to maximize our impact. These Causes encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs, and we have a proven record of success in addressing them:

We have 27 Book Buddy volunteers from Rotary and the community who visit each elementary school twice a month to read stories to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders in the classroom and work one-on-one with selected students in the library. Book Buddies also offers Chelan and Manson students a book giveaway program throughout the school year and for the summer that allows them to choose books of their own to keep, take home and share with their families. Book Buddies has given away more than 1,500 books since September 2022 to approximately 150 happy young readers.Donations to the program can also be made to: Lake Chelan Rotary Community & International Fund, PO Box 601, Chelan, WA 98816.
