- Join Us
The Bettendorf Rotary holds its weekly meetings at the Fortune Garden every Wednesday at noon. Our meetings are fun and full of fellowship with other Rotary members. Every week we are treated with guest speakers from all over the world. We have had Governors, Senators, Representatives, Rotary Presidents, Generals, Business Owners, and so many others. We try to end our meetings by 1;00pm as we know everyone needs to get back work. Once you are a member of Rotary weekly attendance is strongly encouraged. If you cannot attend a weekly meeting, you are encouraged to attend one of the many other Rotary meetings throughout the Quad Cities to "make Up" your missed meeting if possible. We do understand that everyone is busy, and that is not always possible.
Involvement with the Bettendorf Rotary Club does not take a lot of time from your schedule other that our weekly luncheon. If you wish to serve on one of our committees, you are welcomed - not required. As you begin to understand Rotary, you will begin to see what good comes from our meetings - both locally and internationally.
Dues are $195.00 per quarter. This covers our quarterly Rotary international dues, a $25 contribution to the Paul Harris Foundation, and your weekly lunches. When you come to the meeting each week as a member, your lunch is already paid for. When you join there is a one time initiation fee of $50. Ready to join the Bettendorf Rotary?

So while Rotary is a membership based organization, we welcome anyone who wants to learn more about becoming a Rotarian. Since we meet for lunch guests pay $9 at the door for their meal. The laughter, singing, and learning are all free!
