The Rotary Club of Palatine is a civic service organization that has been active in the Palatine community for over 50 years. We are organized under Rotary International, which began in 1905 in Chicago. The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. We meet for fun and fellowship at 7:15 every Tuesday morning at the Red Apple Pancake House & Cafe. It's located at 2121 Plum Grove Rd, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008 (847) 925-8048. Please feel free to join us, or contact us at info@palatinerotary.com.
