Welcome to the Rotary Club of Plainview, TX. Founded in 1921, we are one of the top clubs in the Panhandle and currently 71 members strong.
 
2016 – 2017 promises to be an exciting year for Rotary as the world hopes to see the last case of the poliovirus, a disease that Rotary International has worked to eradicate since 1985. There’s no better time than the present to donate for such a great cause and to be a part of history. As often spoken and seen in print, “We are this close to ending polio.”
 
Our Foundation which began with a humble amount of $26.50 has spent more than $3 billion on programs and projects that have touched and transformed many lives globally. This year The Rotary Foundation will be celebrating its 100th anniversary.
 
Beginning July 2016 our meeting schedule has been modified.  We will have three regular meetings at the Plainview Country Club and one Tuesday evening will be devoted to fellowship and community service. Times and places will be posted on the website.  We will not be meeting on the fifth Tuesday of any month. 
 
We are indeed a Club of Service. Our slogan, ‘Service Above Self’ is demonstrated through our six areas of focus: supporting education, providing clean water, promoting peace, saving mothers and children, growing local economies, and fighting disease. There are many stories that can be told and shared.
 
Locally our projects include providing dictionaries for third graders throughout Hale County, awarding prizes for Perfect Attendance to students in the Plainview ISD, volunteering for the Hale County Literacy Council, Meals on Wheels, and the Salvation Army, sponsoring the local Boy Scout troop and the YMCA. Our largest annual fundraiser is the Running Water Draw Arts and Crafts Festival which also helps to fund our student scholarship program. This event is held each year in October.
 
Rotary club members strive to adhere to our 4-way test.  Of the things we think, say, or do:
1.Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
 
The Plainview Rotary Club is a vibrant TEAM you will be proud to be a part of. We invite you to join us and be a part of the oldest and largest service organization in the world.
