The Rotary Club of Marion is a passionate group of professionals in the Smyth County area that are committed to serving both our community and the world as a whole. As part of Rotary International, The Rotary Club of Marion is joined by almost 1.2 million Rotarians in over 168 countries worldwide. For 90 years, our members have practiced Rotary International’s motto of Service Above Self by giving of their time, talent, and resources to provide humanitarian efforts within their own community and around the world.
Locally, our club has been involved in numerous projects such as scholarships for seniors, educational grants assisting teachers with supplies and tools to do their job well, Breakfast with Santa, providing each child with breakfast, a book and a picture with Santa. We have assisted with RAM (Remote Area Medical) arrange and sponsor The Christmas Parade for The Town of Marion, and many other area activities. In addition to large projects, we have provided countless volunteers to support various activities from the planting of trees at Hungry Mother Park to the assistance of our Chamber of Commerce in raising money for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. This is but a brief overview of our club and contributions. We invite you to join us for a meeting to learn more.
