Welcome

Founded in 1921, the Hickory Rotary Club is Catawba County’s first and most widely recognized service organization, We take great pride in our club’s rich history of giving back to the community that has given so much to every one of us. In adherence to Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self,” our club’s primary service avenue is education. In addition, we engage in a number of other service projects that benefit citizens in need, such as Salvation Army bell ringing, providing meals and gifts at Christmas, and Red Cross blood drives just to name a few.
