Service Above Self

Are you interested in serving your community? Are you interested in being part of an organization that has a huge impact on changing our world for the better?

The Rotary Club of Northfield strives to do this by living our motto – Service Above Self. Our club meets each Thursday at 12 pm at the Northfield United Methodist Church for fellowship and a meeting. We would love to have you to join us!

Why Rotary?

"Rotary is Northfield at its best. Active, alive, engaged. The connections I have made through the Rotary club have been surprising, unexpected and inspirational. Non-profits, banks, civic leaders, law firms, retirees (just to name a few); the people in this club propel activities forward for the good of all. That's why I'm a Rotarian."

- Jesse Steed
