A Message from the Club President

Dear Rotarians and Guests:

The Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale, known as the "Downtown Rotary," was founded in 1922, 95 years ago. With 160 members, it is the oldest service organization in Broward County and largest club in our Rotary District. The original 13 charter members of the club believed service did not only apply to better business and professional conduct but to service for the betterment of humanity and fellowship in the everyday affairs of life.

It's a great honor to serve as the 95th President of the Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale, the largest club in our District 6990 - which covers Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties and the Grand Bahama Islands. The dynamic Rotarians of our club consistently "Make a Difference" and are considered to be Fort Lauderdale's backbone of civic service and leadership. Throughout its long history the Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale has - and continues to make - a substantial impact in our community through service projects, vocational assistance and local charities.  Internationally, we are focused on eradicating Polio along with many other humanitarian efforts such as distributing wheelchairs to those in need around the world and assisting the less fortunate with education and potable water.   
Please join us at the Global Events Center in Downtown Fort Lauderdale for a Wednesday lunch meeting, or the evening social on the last Wednesday of every month.  You will find engaging speakers, fellowship and learn about the passion for service that is shared among 1.2 million Rotarians in 35,000 clubs in over 200 countries who come together to create positive, lasting change in communities and around the world.
Jonathan Keith 
2017 - 2018 President
Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale
