The Rotary Club of Tyler Welcomes You!


The Rotary Club of Tyler has a rich history. It was chartered on May 1, 1920. Many of the most influential persons in East  Texas history were members or officers of the Tyler Rotary Club.

Our club is composed of entrepreneurs, business leaders, civic leaders, and professionals from the fields of medicine, accounting, and the law, among others. We support a number of community and civic projects, as well as projects that bring needed medical attention to some of the most impoverished parts of the world.

If you are in business in Tyler, our club offers you an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals – persons who desire to operate their business affairs on the highest plane of ethics and integrity.

What would it take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to “Service Above Self”.

You are welcome to join us for lunch, a good program, and warm fellowship to experience how our club is contributing to changing the world and those lives in our community, as well.

Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Tyler.

Pamela Walters

President, 2020-2021
