What is Rotary?
 

Rotary is an international network of local clubs for people who want to create lasting change and have fun doing it.

Our Club
At Kingston-Frontenac Rotary Club, our hands on approach goes beyond providing financial support to projects. Club members pitch in. Whether cleaning up Rotary Park, our building a rain water collection system in rural Tanzania, KFRC members are involved from concept development, through implementation, to long term mentoring. We get involved and we have a good time doing it.
Who We Are

Our Vision: Together we contribute to lasting improvements in our community, internationally, and in ourselves.

Our Mission: We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Our Values: We are a dedicated group of inspired individuals guided by Rotary's four-way test and its six areas of focus who pursue relevant social causes to improve lives in the Kingston community and beyond.
