The Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor has been serving the community of Brookings-Harbor for more than 60 years. We are part of Rotary District 5110 and Rotary International.
The Rotary "Four Way Test" of the things we think, say and do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to All Concerned?
Will it Build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it Be BENEFICIAL to All Concerned?
The Brookings-Harbor Rotary Club is a service organization that is involved in supporting activities throughout the Brookings-Harbor community. For the last five years Rotary has organized the Wild Rivers Ducky Derby, which has raised over $120,000 to date for community programs and has historically been the largest fundraiser of the year. This year, instead of the Duck Derby, Rotary is planning a new fundraising event called Raining Cats and Dogs. Additionally, Rotary strongly supports education by annually awarding four student scholarships, hosting the BHHS Student of the Month program, sponsoring two BHHS sophomores to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Training Camp and hosting an annual foreign exchange student. Rotary’s First Harvest Food Program and expansion of the Snack Pack Program at Kalmiopsis School both address local hunger needs. Rotary also supports the schools through the Sole Mates program which provides $2,500 each year in shoe vouchers for needy students, sponsoring the BHHS Interact program which helps students pursue service projects and supplying free dictionaries each year to third grade students.
