Mahalo for visiting The Rotary Club of Honolulu

Rotary around the globe has accomplished many wonderful achievements, and continues to do so this year, guided by our new theme "Be the Inspiration".
As we are ever closer to the eradication of polio, with 42 cases remaining within the Pakistan/Afghanistan region, Rotary continues to provide hope for humanity throughout the world.
Chartered on July 1, 1915, the Rotary Club of Honolulu remains the oldest and largest Rotary Club in Hawai`i.  Our club includes 150 business, civic, and community leaders, both young and seasoned, all with a commitment to a better world through the common purpose of "Service Above Self".
Our club is known for its "Town Hall" lunchtime programs that include influential speaker and panels that give us pause to broaden our understanding of current issues and challenges, and ultimately encourage solution driven conversations.  We also are graced with the opportunity to visit an active submarine or aircraft carrier from time to time!
Our club meets three times per month in the Monarch Room of the famed "Pink Palace" - The Royal Hawaiian Hotel located in Waikiki.  We assemble to better our relationships, purpose ourselves with thoughtfully planned projects in our community, and to reach out and welcome new leaders to our network.  Each of our members eagerly gives of their own time and resources; their uniqueness and individual abilities collectively are able to move mountains.
Please come and join us for one of our meetings.  You will find the friendship and variety of vocations represented by our members to be encouraging, thoughtful, and hopefully inspiring enough for you to engage in our purpose!  To learn more about our club and our good work in making Hawai`i a better place, or to find out the particulars of our next meeting, please call Martha at 808-922-5526 or email us at administrator@honolulurotary.com.
 
Our best Aloha,
Paul Saito, President 2019-20
