The Rotary Club of Lexington, chartered October 1, 1915, has, over the years, raised more than $1,000,000 for a variety of community and international service projects. The 350-member club is a part of Rotary International District 6740, which covers the eastern section of the state and contains 44 clubs with approximately 2,000 Rotarians. Those qualified for membership are adult persons of good character and good business or professional reputation who are engaged as proprietors, partners, corporate officers or managers in their businesses. There are four avenues of service in which Rotarians participate: club service, vocational service, community service and international service. Prospective members are sponsored by a current Rotary member. Meetings are held at 12:00 noon each Thursday in the dining room at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky at 2400 Newtown Pike.
