Message From The President:     Seeking a Rotary Club?   Welcome to our website.

Rotary is one of the world’s premier service organizations. Paul Harris had a visionary idea when he started a tiny Rotary club in Chicago in 1905.

The Reedsburg Rotary Club has made changes to meet two times a month. One meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and a second flexible "Service Project" meetings.

The new Club meeting schedule is being prepared and a link will be on the web site for download.   

International is the world’s first service club organization. It has grown to more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Our Club, The Rotary Club of Reedsburg dates back to 1992. We are proud to have helped to expand the reach of Rotary through our Club’s sponsorship. The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.

Please contact me as needed!.

Best Wishes,  Joel Groskreutz,  - 2020-21.  President,  The Rotary Club of Reedsburg



Above Self

4 Avenue of Service

The Four Avenues of Service, based on the Object of Rotary, are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based.


  • Club Services

  • Community Services

  • International Services

  • Vocational Services

  • An effective service project:

  • Responds to a real issue, not an imagined one.

  • Improves the lives of community members.

  • Incorporates the abilities of those who are served.

  • Recognizes all participants' contributions as important and necessary.

  • Comes from a realistic assessment of resources available.

  • Aims for specific goals and objectives with measurable results.

  • Builds a working network

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:


  1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

  2. 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;

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

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

4 Way Test

Ethical Environment

Encouraging high ethical standards in one's profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark Rotary from its earliest days. In their business and professional lives, Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test. Of the things we think, say, or do:


                      ROTARY INTERNATIONAL

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.  See the RI Strategic Plan. Diversity and Rotary International recognizes the value of diversity within individual clubs. Rotary encourages clubs to assess those in their communities who are eligible for membership, under existing membership guidelines, and to endeavor to include the appropriate range of individuals in their clubs. A club that reflects its community with regard to professional and business classification, gender, age, religion, and ethnicity is a club with the key to its future.
