We have lunch meetings every Thursday at 12:00p.m. , except the fourth Thursday of each month, which is a social hour meeting at 5:45 p.m., at Artichoke & Co. just off Bonita Beach Rd., near the entrance to Home Depot in Bonita Springs.

More than 1.2 million men and women in over 200 countries and geographical areas belong to over 33,000 Rotary clubs. Rotary builds international understanding through scholarships, exchange programs, and humanitarian grants. Throughout the world, Rotary clubs participate in a broad range of educational, intercultural, and humanitarian activities designed to improve the lives of others.
Benefits of Membership
Members join Rotary for many reasons, including community involvement, personal development, professional networking, and camaraderie with fellow members. But perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction gained from making a real difference in the world.
Belonging to a Rotary club provides members with an opportunity to make a contribution to their own communities and to communities around the world.
For over nineteen years, the Rotary Club of Bonita Naples has awarded scholarships to students at Estero High School. Now, every year a minimum of two four-year scholarships are awarded to deserving seniors.
