Welcome to Aitkin Rotary

Welcome to Aitkin Lakes Rotary. This Club was organized June 10, 1995 and is proud to continue a tradition of service above self. This service above self is visible in the local community, our region, and internationally. Aitkin Rotary strives to help the youth of our community through many projects.

The Aitkin Rotary Club meets every 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays of the month at 12:15 p.m. at the 40 Club in Aitkin, MN. You, too, could find fulfillment through service above self.
