Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

The Rotary Club of Tigard has implemented the Rotary ideals in the local community since 1964.

The Object of Rotary

The OBJECT of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:


The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.


High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;


The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;


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

Social Events

Important to any well-functioning club, social events are our opportunity to develop strong and lasting bonds and friendships as members of Rotary.  These are our annual social events; many other less-formal ones are planned throughout the year.
