Rotarians At Work Day 2023 – Saturday, April 29

April 29, 2023

Rotarians At Work Day happens the last Saturday in April, having started in 2006 as a joint effort between two Rotary Districts (one in the United States and one in Mexico). Rotarians at Work Day continues to grow each year as Clubs around the world identify hands-on projects that all members can participate in to help their local community. Friends and family are welcome.

Don’t forget to take some pictures and email them in to the Rotary office. Thank you for your participation on this day of service!

To sign up for a project, click on the project name. (Rotaracts, please add a (R) at the end of your last name so we can identify you.) Registration for projects will close once the # of volunteers is met.
