WELCOME TO ROTARY
CLUB OF PRINCETON

We are so glad you have checked out our web page. On this site, you will find plenty of information about who we are, what we do, where we meet, and how you can get connected.
 
Let me be the first to welcome you if you are new. Just a few years ago I was new, too. I was one of those who got involved right away, and it didn’t take long for me to get “roped in” as some have said; I don’t see it that way. When I joined, I did so because I wanted to be a part of something that served the people around me, my neighbors, and anyone in need. I honestly didn’t know much about Rotary, but I knew service was a big part of it, and that’s what I was looking for.  What I got by joining was so much more.
 
Rotary is a solid community in Princeton that just celebrated a century of service. This is something we are extremely proud of because, just as other service clubs in the area are finding that 2020 was too difficult to pull out of, we have come out even stronger and poised to do great things in the coming year.
 
My question for you is, “What part will you play?” If service is not just something you do, but a part of who you are, this is the place for you. Or if you haven’t been a part of a service organization like this and you just want to check it out, come on out! And we will welcome you with open arms. We are not exclusive, but welcome anyone who wants to take part in serving this great community. Yours may just be the voice we need to make a bigger impact for Princeton and the surrounding area.
 
So come join us and help us to enhance our community and widen our impact, for the greater good of Princeton.
 
Joe Kitchens, President
