The Paola Rotary Club has a long history of service both to the local community and through many international projects.  This year as we celebrate 80 years of service we are continuing our efforts to serve both our local and world community.  Our theme for this year is "SERVICE ABOVE SELF"

The Paola Rotary Club weekly meeting includes singing, luncheon, and a program or speaker with presentations on items of  interest to our membership.  Members take turns hosting programs and speakers.  Some of the notable guests this past year have included Kansas Congressman Jim Ryun, Kansas State Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, and University of Kansas Athletic Director Lew Perkins.
