WHO WE ARE

Martin Rotarians have always engaged in service projects designed to improve the community and through Rotary International to address solutions to major issues throughout the world. Locally, notable projects included support for University of Tennessee at Martin scholarships, funds to construct the Hardy M. Graham Stadium, establishment and improvement of community parks and recreational facilities, and donations to social service projects and activities.
Local fundraisers included beauty pageants, community-wide drives, ham breakfasts, golf tournaments, singing competitions, horse shows, and special celebrations.
Martin Rotarians historically have supported youth activities including cooperative ventures with UT Martin, hosting and providing foreign exchange students, sponsorship of Interact/Rotaract clubs, and establishment of youth recreational opportunities.
Internationally, the club has joined Rotary International projects related to the eradication of polio, literacy initiatives, and humanitarian relief throughout the world.
