We are committed to making the community and world a better place while having inordinate amounts of fun. The beauty of Rotary is that it's open to people of all cultures, ethnicities, genders and professions, and it's not affiliated with any political or religious organizations. Really.

1.2 million Rotarians in over 34,000 clubs globally practice the ideal of Service Above Self. We are white collar, blue collar, goody two-shoes, deviants, prudes, jokesters, stoics and everything in between, and it's ok because our goal is the same - we must be the good we wish to see in the world. Otherwise that world won't exist.

GREENBELT PROJECT IS COMPLETE!
Our Rotary Park on the Greenbelt is completed!
 

After several years of fits and starts the Rotary Park on the Greenbelt is finally finished! A "Grand Unveiling" celebration was held at the park on Sunday October 4th. The project has been a collaboration of three Boise clubs - Metro, Centennial and Eagle/Garden City, working with the City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department.  The park features a 1932 monument originally placed nearby by the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution, commemorating Oregon Trail pioneers. This is one of 48 monuments placed by the D.A.R. around southern Idaho in the 1930s. There are three interpretive signs telling some fascinating history of the area including the monuments; the 50 year history of the Greenbelt, what was once known as Government Island and the nearby "Trestle Bridge".

Rotarian John Biggs, of Boise Metro, spearheaded the project. He said "we are so pleased the way it turned out. We are grateful for the support from the community". Total cost of the project was $85,000. Funds were raised through the sale of commemorative bricks. Major grant support was provided by District 5400 and the Greater Boise Rotary Foundation.

The park is located on the south side of the Boise River, about 4 tenths of a mile east of Joe's Crabshack restaurant, near the Riverside Hotel.

 
 

Chartered in 1985 and one of 11 Rotary Clubs in Boise's Treasure Valley, our 40 members are committed to making our community and the world a better place while having excessive amounts of fun.

Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and not affiliated with any political or religious organizations. You'll find us volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.

Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
