Welcome to the Hyde Park Rotary website. In keeping with Rotay's motto of "Service above self," we pledge ourselves to supporting many of the areas in the civic and social not for profit support industries that enrich the life of Hyde Park and help to meet the needs of everyday citizens of our community. It goes without saying that we love Hyde Park and we find that life together is enriched by the relationships, not just the zipcode, that we all share.
Hyde Park is not only rich in history, it is also steeped in gifted and talented individuals who come together to solve the problems that modern communities face. So much is out of our control, but there still remains a whole lot that we can do together. If you need an invitation to become a part of something bigger than yourself, if you're looking for the personal enrichment that only comes from making a difference, well, consider this your invitation to join us!
