Who We Are
The Rotary Club of Golden Valley, founded in 1972, is a leading area service organization committed to improving the lives of the community both locally and globally. It donates thousands of dollars and its members contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually to local charities, student scholarships, and international humanitarian projects.
Over the past years, the Golden Valley Rotary has contributed annually nearly $20,000 to local efforts, including scholarships for local students to attend college, a scholarship for a teacher’s continuing education, to Crisis Nursery, PRISM, Fast For Hope, and Golden Valley Days. In the last 25 years, the club has donated more than 1,200 books to the children’s section of the Golden Valley Library.
This year, members will volunteer at PRISM, Feed My Starving Children, Robbinsdale Area Schools, and twice to Highway 55 cleanup from Highway 169 east to the Glenwood Avenue intersection.
Club members enjoy the benefit of fellowship at club meetings and events with those who share Rotary’s moral and ethical foundation, and carry it through in their lives at home and at work. Our focus on ethics is reflected in the Rotary 4-Way Test:
Of the things we think, say and do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
