As the world’s 11th largest Rotary club, our members represent a cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, and professional leaders who make decisions and influence policy throughout northwest Ohio. For the past 100 years, the Rotary Club of Toledo has made a difference in meeting the needs of deserving people in our community and elsewhere. Together, we are capable of achieving great things as we begin our 2nd century of service to our local and international communities!
