Members congratulate one another—and are there to support each other—on anniversaries at work, job promotions, marriages, new babies or first homes. Rotaract stands out because the Club partners with Springfield’s five Rotary Clubs; by working together on service projects and professional development, meeting together for socials and coming together for an annual city-wide meeting, Rotaract members are exposed to the various clubs to determine which one is the best fit for them after their time in Rotaract.
"Rotaract has been an incredible opportunity for me. Gone for six years during and after college, I lost touch with Springfield; Rotaract gave me the opportunity to reconnect with the city in which I grew up. Rotaract has given me a chance to meet new people, explore new opportunities, and give back to the community where I plan to spend the rest of my life. The work Rotary Clubs do in my hometown is incredible, and I want to be a part of that."
Potential new members, your first lunch is on us!
Currently, the Rotaract Club of Springfield meets from noon to 1 p.m. every second and fourth Wednesday at 425 Downtown at 425 W. Walnut in Springfield. Each luncheon features a program to expand members’ understanding of the work environment and business opportunities within the community. Speakers from various facets of the area bring the knowledge of their industry or organization to members each meeting. Visiting Rotarians often join Rotaracters for lunch as well.
