About Granite Rotary

Service Above Self

The Granite Rotary Club of St. Cloud was started by members of the St. Cloud Rotary Club. Their membership was over 100, and it was deemed time to start another club. In June 1984, the Club was chartered with 24 members. The first few years were spent mostly learning about Rotary and developing the social structure of the club. During that time, Granite Rotary was among the earliest of the clubs to accept a woman as a member.

Our annual rose sale has allowed us to successfully raise money for projects since 1989. With the proceeds, the Club has contributed more than $500,000 to charitable community, vocational, and international activities. In addition to these contributions, the Club endeavors to find local hands-on projects every year.

When the Club was chartered, the Members were looking for significant social interaction. Our club meets monthly for socials and annually for the summer picnic, fishing trip, and Christmas party.
