The Rotary Club of Croton on Hudson is an association of local business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service and encourages high ethical standards in all professions. We are the local chapter of Rotary International.

Join us!

We meet every Tuesday.

During the COVID-19 restrictions, our club was meeting online via Zoom.  Now that the restrictions are lightening, we have a “hybrid” schedule in place. 

See calendar for times and places of our future meetings.

At our meeting we discuss upcoming events, plan projects and enjoy each other’s company!

 

PLEASE JOIN US!

The Croton Rotary Club has organized a candlelight vigil to honor and aid the people of Ukraine. The purpose of our gathering will be to continue expressing our solidarity with the cause of the Ukrainian people and to raise funds for relief efforts.

The program will include remarks from local officials and a presentation by a member of the Ukrainian Community. Our students’ voices will be represented by a speaker from Croton Harmon High School and in performances by students of CHHS.

Online and direct contributions will be used by Rotary International to support humanitarian assistance in Ukraine

2021 Dogwood Tree Grove Project

This grove, located at Croton Landing,  is dedicated to the many residents and businesses of Croton on Hudson who were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that began in the year 2020. We are especially grateful for the courage demonstrated by health care providers and other essential workers during this challenging time.

The Croton Rotary conceived of this space to commemorate the resilience our community demonstrated in overcoming the severe challenges presented by this disease. Those efforts exemplify the Rotary philosophy of “Service Above Self.”

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS

We would like to welcome our newest members, Len Simon, Laurie Dean and Barry Werbin.

Thank you to all who joined us for our 37th Annual Auto Show + Parade
