Since 1921, Rotarians have pitched in and helped the Skagit community in thousands of ways. Over the years the club has funded over a $100,000 in scholarships, worked at the local homeless shelter, and pitched in on thousands of community projects.
The club's service goals have been funded through selling berries, flipping pancakes and most recently through our annual benefit auction, Mount Vernon Rotarians have sought out opportunities to serve the local community.

  Our ongoing commitment

Rotary members have not only been present for major events in history — we’ve also been a part of them. Three key traits have remained strong throughout our history:

We’re truly international. Only 16 years after being founded, Rotary had clubs on six continents. Today, members in nearly every country work to solve some of our world’s most challenging problems.

We persevere in tough times. During World War II, Rotary clubs in Austria, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain were forced to disband. Despite the risks, many continued to meet informally, and after the war, Rotary members came together to rebuild their clubs and their countries.

We’re committed to service, and we’re not afraid to dream big and set bold goals. We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, polio remains endemic in only three countries — down from 125 in 1988.

The Mount Vernon Rotary Club was founded in October of 1921 and is one of the oldest clubs in the state of Washington.
