Welcome to the Rotary Club of Quincy. We are club #3242 located in Illinois district 6460 and are proud to be the home of 2012-13 District Governor, Suzanne Ellerbrock. We have approximately 100 diverse members with an average length of membership of over 12 years. We meet weekly on Tuesday at the Holiday Inn on 48th Street and have a really good time together. We think you'll find this is a very friendly club with a high level of engagement in the community. If you're interested in joining our club and really making a difference in Quincy, we'd love to have you join us for lunch.
The Rotary Club of Quincy, Illinois is a service club operating locally, nationally, and internationally. Our members are business and professional leaders who volunteer in our community and promote world understanding. We meet every Tuesday at Tony’s Too in the Quincy Holiday Inn to discuss challenges and opportunities, listen to informative speakers, and get to know one another better.
Rotarians donate time, talent, and money to a variety of causes locally and globally. For instance, every week one of our members reads to students at Washington Elementary School while others pack backpacks with free food for the weekend for needy kids at Adams Elementary School. We engage in several different fundraisers throughout the year to fund small projects and to build funds to provide major donations.
Every year we raise money to give away over 700 hundred turkey dinners to families in need locally. Together with Sportsmen Against Hunger we sponsor a program for hunters to donate over 23,000 lbs of deer meat annually. Vocational Students of the Month and Year and Rotary Teen Career Day allow us to mentor students. We recently donated $20,000 to the Salvation Army’s Family Shelter and $108,000 to Friends of the Trails.
