Why Seattle 4?


Of thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was number four, and we’ve been growing ever since. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship, and service. As one of the world’s largest Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen in our local and global communities. 

Over the decades, Rotary Club of Seattle has provided a forum for prominent people from business, civic, and academia in the United States and around the world. They have found the club to be an excellent venue to present their views on topical issues and encourage support for their programs and causes.
