The Rotary Club of Sammamish is a group of business and community leaders positively changing the lives of our members, the Sammamish community, and the world.
Founded in 2003, our 38 members are committed to Rotary’s Service Above Self philosophy that drives the Club’s efforts. We meet to build friendships, exchange ideas, listen to influential and intriguing guest speakers, and act to create positive change in our community.
Members support a variety of local, national, and global projects. Some of these commitments include Northwest Harvest food packing, Mayor’s Month of Concern Food Drive, high school scholarship interviews, clean wells and a medical center for Songea’s Kids in Tanzania, sustainable agricultural in Luz Del Manana village in Nicaragua, and maternal and infant health and nutrition in Guatemala.
The heart and soul of the club is the individual passion for serving others that each member brings. We’re an active, enthusiastic group and are always on the lookout for like-minded leaders to join our efforts.
Every year, Sammamish Rotary puts on Nightmare at Beaver Lake, an all-volunteer production that is the premier fall community event on the Sammamish Plateau. All proceeds from the Nightmare go right back into our community. This year alone, Sammamish Rotary has provided more than $54,000 in support to local and international organizations to support COVID-19 response.
This fundraiser is supporting Harvest Against Hunger, a program of Rotary District 5030, that seeks to eliminate food waste by bringing together farmers, truckers, and foodbanks to ensure fresh produce is available to those who need it.
