About Our Club

Welcome to the La Conner Rotary Club


We are a hands-on service club dedicated to improving lives locally and around the world.  We do this by promoting and investing in literacy, public health and community service.  We are the club people want to join, because we have fun while making a difference.  


We would love to have you join us.  You don’t have to live in La Conner; we have members all over the Skagit Valley.  And you don’t have to be actively engaged in a business to be a member; many of our members are retired or people who just want to be involved in their community.


We meet most Mondays at 5:45 p.m. at The Farmhouse Restaurant in La Conner.  Feel free to join us one evening if you’d like to meet us and learn more, but be sure to check our meeting schedule on the homepage to make sure there isn’t a venue change or meeting cancellation.


If you’d like to join our ranks, please contact anyone you know in the club to express your interest, or email rotarycluboflaconner@gmail.com

We support our philanthropic work primarily through our two big annual fundraising events – tulips sales during the Skagit Valley Tulip festival and our big, fun summer auction.  Individual member donations also help support our work.


Our club was chartered in 1945.  We are proud to be part of Rotary International, an organization that includes more than 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders in more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries around the world.  And our club is international on a local level too.  We are part of District 5050, which extends from lower British Columbia down through the Everett area.
