Of the thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was the fourth club established in 1909. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of fellowship and Service Above Self. As one of the world’s largest and most inclusive Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen in our local and global communities. 

Over the decades, the Rotary Club of Seattle has provided a forum for prominent people from business, civic, and academia in the United States and around the world.  The best way to learn more about our club and the work we do is to experience this first hand. If you would like to attend a lunch meeting and learn more about Seattle 4, please contact Club Manager, Caroline Bobanick at caroline@seattlerotary.org.  We meet every Wednesday at noon and welcome you to join us!

Seattle Sounders: How to Grow a Sports Franchise 

Join us this Wednesday, March 21st at the Westin for a program dedicated to the Seattle Sounders. Team owner Adrian Hanauer will join us for a discussion on the phenomenal rise and growth of Seattle’s MLS franchise. Under Hanauer’s leadership, the team has set attendance records, made it to the playoffs every year since joining the MLS in 2009 and won the MLS Cup in 2016.

We’ll also examine the Sounders’ early days with former coach Alan Hinton.  As a player, Alan won two English Premiere League Championships and played for Britain’s National Team. When he came to Seattle to coach, Alan drafted current coach Brian Schmetzer. Alan is known as Mr. Soccer in Seattle for playing a key role for many years helping the soccer movement grow. Say it together, “Seattle…. Sounders!” See you Wednesday.

Meeting Information

We meet Wednesdays at 12:00pm at various venues across downtown Seattle. Check our calendar for details.
