THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The community service organization was founded in 1974 in the midst of the community’s infancy. The club has grown alongside The Woodlands and continues to thrive with its members of business and community leaders working hand in hand to help make the world – both locally and internationally - a better place.

With a motto of “Service above Self”, members of Rotary Club of The Woodlands have continuously partnered with local organizations to impact the community through projects like coordinating mobile food pantries, donating blood, honoring seniors during the holidays and veterans on Veterans Day, and mentoring at a local elementary school. One of its biggest efforts is sponsoring six Interact Clubs at local high schools, including College Park The Woodlands High School, John Cooper School, Grand Oaks High School, Oak Ridge High School, The Woodlands High School, and The Woodlands Christian Academy. Scholarships are awarded to seniors at each of these high schools and students attending Lone Star College Montgomery. The club’s signature project is Rotary House, which provides free housing for up to 90 days to a patient or family in treatment at one of Montgomery County’s hospitals, treatment centers or rehabilitation centers.

A few of our club’s founders will be gathering together on Thursday, April 25, 2024, in hopes of telling our club’s story and commemorating this 50 year milestone.Rotary members improve lives and bring positive, lasting change to communities around the world by promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, supporting education, saving mothers and children, growing local economies and protecting the environment. Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985, and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
