The Rotary Club of Fort Myers is the oldest and the largest Rotary Club in Southwest Florida. Founded in 1922 when the City of Fort Myers was beginning to boom, our Club has broadly contributed to the growth and well being of our community through the decades. Our Club members were some of the first boosters for the Tamiami Trail. Our Club completed the iconic palms along McGregor Boulevard. We also pushed for the completion of Interstate 75 through our region. Our Club also has chartered the establishment of many new Rotary Clubs in the region over the years. The Rotary motto, “Service Above Self,” has been the inspiration for countless fundraisers, service projects, grants, scholarships, and other causes that have touched lives on a small and large scale. Over the years, the various efforts of the men and women of our Club have raised millions of dollars and made our community, and our world, a better place.
