Bloomsburg Rotary Club has been committed to local service for over 100 years and supports Rotary International’s efforts. The club is a part of the Adopt-A-Highway program and is committed to the Bloomsburg Area Soup Kitchen. We prepare the Community Friendship Meal (at Wesley United Methodist Church) several times each year. Funding has been provided for a variety of area organizations, including the Children’s Museum, EOS Therapeutic Riding Center, Bloomsburg Little League, Boy Scouts, Columbia County Food Bank, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and AGAPE. Among the projects the club is most proud of is its contribution of a walk-in refrigerator/freezer to the Food Cupboard. Club members helped renovate the Food Bank’s current home, a former fire hall on Center Street in Bloomsburg. Bloomsburg Rotary has a long history with Bloomsburg Town Park and the Norris Rock Memorial Pool. Two pavilions in the park were built by the club, the most recent in 2005 to celebrate Rotary’s centennial.
Meetings of the Bloomsburg Rotary Club are held every Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. at the Bloomsburg VFW and Friday morning at the Inn at Inn at Turkey Hill at 7:30 am. Each meeting features a guest speaker such as community leaders, law enforcement, businessmen, political office holders, and periodic talks by exchange students from around the world.
