The original Rotary Club in Missouri’s capital city, the Rotary Club of Jefferson City is a grassroots service organization that was established in 1918 by community leaders. The Rotary Club of Jefferson City was initially formed to raise money and establish a place for the youth of our community to gather. Today, our membership includes more than 100 civic-minded professional men and women, many of whom serve or have served in the highest professional capacities of their industries. Weekly meetings provide an enjoyable way to network and collectively plan and initiate significant contributions that promote the vision of Rotary locally and to needy areas of the world. We live by the motto “Service Above Self.”

What We Do
The original Rotary Club in Missouri’s capital, the Rotary Club of Jefferson City is a grassroots service organization that was established in 1918 by community leaders. Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. We meet weekly for fellowship to plan and carry out a variety of club, community and international service activities.
Meetings are held Mondays at noon at the Miller Performing Arts Center and typically include a speaker of general interest to our members, such as prominent public and political figures, local elected officials and administrators, sports figures, authors, academics, or other leaders in a particular industry.

New Teacher Appreciation Luncheon We had an excellent New Teacher Appreciation Banquet last Friday. Over 100 of the 130 new teachers were in attendance. Comments were given by the Mayor, Carrie Tergin and the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Margie Vandeven. Dr. Linthicum introduced all of the new teachers. The keynote address was given by Regina Roe. She is the 2019 JCPS Teacher of the Year, and teaches mathematics at Jefferson City High School.
