Our Club


The Red Lodge Rotary Club was chartered in 1938 with 18 members. Today, there are 45 members in our Club. Red Lodge is a small mountain community in south central Montana nestled at the base of the Beartooth Mountains. It is a gateway to the Beartooth All American Road, one of the most scenic drives in North America. It features breathtaking views of the Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains and open high alpine plateaus dotted with glacial lakes, forested valleys, waterfalls and wildlife.

Feel free to take a look at the webcams in and around Red Lodge.

What is Rotary all about? The Object of Rotary is to "Encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise." Rotary is a service organization. Since 1910, the Rotary Motto has been Service Above Self. You can learn more about Rotary and Service Above Self from Rotary Basics (pdf). Click here to download Adobe pdf reader.

Avenues of Service

For years, Rotary's commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through four avenues of service. Those avenues are: Community Service, Club Service, International Service and Vocational Service.

Community Service covers the projects and activities the Club undertakes to improve life in its community.

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the Club.

International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.

A new service, Youth Service or Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, focuses on activities that support youth programs including involvement with local schools and post high school scholarships. For information, contact Kit Stewart at

The Four-Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do

  • Is it the truth?
  • Is it fair to all concerned?
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
