For Visitors

With Milton Hershey as an Honorary Member, The Rotary Club of Hershey was founded in 1943. Our club consists of over 130 of the area’s most respected business, professional and civic leaders. We get together at weekly lunch meetings, and other functions, to fulfill our commitment to the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship and service to others. We welcome you to learn more about our club and consider becoming a member.

Join Us for a Meeting!

Lunch meetings are held Mondays at noon at The Hershey Lodge. The location and schedule vary occasionally, so please check the calendar. Cost of lunch is $17.00 (Christmas and Valentine lunches have an additional charge). Prospective members are welcome to join us for two lunch meetings at no charge. Dress is business casual.

Wednesday meetings are held at 5:30 - 6:30 pm at The Hershey Lodge Forebay Lounge and Tower Suite Meeting Rooms. The location and schedule vary occasionally, so please check the calendar.

We learned of a growing problem of hunger in Derry Township. Many groups are working together to meet the need, including Love INC and the Hershey Food Bank. One of the newest groups is C.O.C.O.A. packs, who prepares weekend backpacks of food for children who receive free or reduced price lunches.  Hershey Rotary will help to prepare backpacks on Wednesday, October 19th from 5:30 to 6:30 at the Hershey Middle School. We will need 10 – 15 volunteers.
