Our Rotary Club

Join leaders, exchange ideas, and take action.

For more than 100 years, Rotary has been an organization of business and professional people united in the idea of service to others. With over 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries, Rotary is one of the world’s largest service organizations. Rotary primarily works through its 34,000 independent clubs. The University Sunrise Rotary Club, with a membership of about 50, has for more than 30 years served the north Seattle community and people around the world.

Join us every Thursday morning at 7:15 at Ivar’s Salmon House in Seattle. Exchange ideas as we listen to speakers, host visitors, travel, and trade thoughts at less formal events. Take action with us because together our efforts multiply to make a lasting change in the world, locally and globally.

If you’re looking to do more community service, expand your worldview, and find broader relationships, come join us at breakfast or any of our events.

Lifelong Friends

Lifelong Friends

Rotarians come from a wide swath of experiences, but unite over a desire to improve communities. As club members work together, they inevitably create bonds lasting across years and distances.
