The Somers Rotary Club was chartered on June 16, 1964. Our members are business and professional men and women with a common goal of serving our local community and the worldwide community.
Besides conducting fund raising projects to raise money to give to deserving groups or to fund our projects, Somers Rotarians are committed to Rotary’s motto: “Service above Self” and are noted for getting involved in community projects that require a lot of their time and labor.
Some of the “Hands on” projects that we have participated in are:
-Sponsor and run the annual Easter Egg Hunt in at Field Road Park
