Founded in 1975 as the Las Vegas Paradise Rotary Club, which was one of ten local area clubs at the time. In 2003, the Paradise and University Rotary clubs merged to form the Las Vegas Central Rotary Club.
WHAT IS ROTARY:
1. We’re a leadership organization…
2. We’re made up of local business, professional and civic leaders…
3. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community…
4. And we have fun…
We meet every Wednesday at 12:15 at the Las Vegas Country Club please come join us and find out what Rotary is all about. The LVCC is directly behind the (Old Hilton & LHV ) now know as the Westgate Hotel & Casino

August is Membership & Extension Month. It is time to celebrate your Rotary club, your members and the good we do in our community and around the world. If you have a Facebook page, you could announce that you are a Proud Member of the Las Vegas-Central Rotary Club. Not only is it important to bring in new members, but it is also important to retain members. In order to retain members, a club should be friendly, have interesting programs, interesting projects and have fun.
At the last Board meeting, it was decided that whenever there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, we will not have a regular meeting at the Country Club. We will have an evening social meeting at a different location each time. It may be meeting at someone’s home for drinks and hors d’oeuvres or meeting at a local bar during Happy Hour. This will be an ideal time to invite friends and/or business acquaintances you believe would be a good addition to our club. Our first Wednesday social will be on August 31st. The time and place will be announced soon.
Lanetta Seppala is our Membership Chair this year. If you would like to be a member of the Membership Committee, please speak with Lanetta. Or if you have any ideas as to how to bring in new members or if you would like to volunteer your home or find a location for one of our Wednesday socials, please talk to Lanetta.
This past Wednesday, we had our first Board Meeting for the new Rotary year. It is time to get things going to make this year a successful year. Our Board is complete but we have several committees where we need to have members of the club step up and volunteer their services. We need a Community Service Chairperson to oversee all of the projects we do in the community. You don’t have to participate in each project, but you have to be sure we have people working on the various projects such as Homeless Connect, Santa Clothes, Clothing Drive for Stupak Center.
If you are interested in helping to grow our Membership or retain members in the club, please speak to Lanetta as she is our Membership Committee Chair.
We are creating a Fundraising Committee to organize at least two fundraisers this year. If you have ideas for a fundraiser and/or have contacts within the community where we might be able to obtain items for a raffle, please talk with me so we can work out details.
Hope to see everyone at the meeting this week.
This Wednesday, July 20th, is our first Board meeting of the new Rotary year. We have a lot of business to take care of. We have to form committees, among them being Membership, Fundraising, Community Service, Administrative Service, Vocational Service, New Generations, Grants, and more.
A note to all Board members: please come to the meeting with your ideas. Two areas we really have to focus on are Membership and Fundraising, but all of the above are important. Since our funds are limited, we will have to decide where we want to focus most of our attention with regard to the projects we get involved in. I am looking forward to a productive meeting on Wednesday evening.

Just reminding everyone who was at the meeting last week and notifying those who were not at the meeting last week that we will be meeting at the following location this Wednesday, July 6, 2016, at Noon:
Fogo de Chao
360 E. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89169
The Country Club arranged this location for us as the Country Club will be closed for repairs to their HVAC system. The Country Club is paying the difference between what we pay to them for our lunch and what the cost for Fogo de Chao’s will be.
The restaurant is located next to McCormick & Schmick on Flamingo Road between Paradise Road and Howard Hughes Parkway. It is on the north side of Flamingo.
Hope to see everyone there.
