Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
What Is Rotary?
Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders spread throughout 34,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries.
Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, share the main objective of service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
The Story of Rotary
Rotary founder Paul Harris said he never imagined that his oasis of friendship and service in a single city would grow into a global force for improving people’s lives.
But that is what Rotary is today…
Rotary four way test
The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages.
Avenues of Service
We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.
So, how can you be involved…

We invite you to learn about us…
Welcome to the Best Dam Barbecue Challenge!
Located in Boulder City, Nevada’s Historic Bicentennial Park – thirty minutes from the Las Vegas strip and 15 minutes from Hoover Dam – the Best Dam Barbecue is an event you don’t want to miss!
Since 2005, being a part of this two day fun-filled event has become a tradition not only for thousands of guests, but for our vendors and our barbecue challengers – many of whom travel in from California, Arizona, Utah and Montana to participate.
The Best Dam Barbecue Challenge is held each Memorial Day Weekend – so mark your calendars for our 2023 event on Saturday, May 27th and Sunday, May 28th!
This event is the primary fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Boulder City — but is FREE TO THE PUBLIC, so please come on out for one or both days and join us for all the fun!
