Here is why we exist . . . .

The Tupelo Rotary Club is a chartered club of Rotary International, and was formed in 1925. The club is comprised of approximately 130 business and civic leaders from throughout Tupelo and Greater Lee County. Our club meets each Monday at noon at the St. Luke United Methodist Church on Clayton Avenue in Tupelo.

Through membership dues, members of the Rotary Club of Tupelo support a host of projects that are meant to improve the lives of people everywhere, from our own backyard to the ends of the earth. Some ways the Rotary Club of Tupelo leads the community in service to our fellow man:
