Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sun Lakes, Arizona

Sun Lakes Rotary Club (Chartered April 22, 1986) is a leadership organization made up of men and women from local businesses, professional, education, civic and emerging leaders.  We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that we’re able to get things done in our greater Sun Lakes community.  Come join us and share our passion for community service and friendship.

Our Sun Lakes Rotary Club's 90 plus members embrace Rotary International's Vision “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our own communities and in ourselves”.  Our members are working and retired men and women of action from the Sun Lakes and Chandler communities who are committed to service in our own communities, communities around the world, and especially projects and programs that support our youth and education.  We WELCOME you to one of our weekly meetings where you will have the opportunity to meet our members, join in on the fun, and get to know Rotary and what we are doing. We meet on time, we eat on time, we have a good time.
