Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.


Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Get involved



We have had a busy Rotary year so far:

In October 2014 we honored two wonderful educators of our Brentwood schools – Ann Schnal from Southwest Elementary and Donna Keller from the Brentwood High School.

Our holiday party last December was wonderful. We had about 100 students, teachers and helpers. Santa did a great job!

Our collection of school supplies for our outreach programs was well supported.

Many wonderful speakers have presented.

We just finished our dictionary project for the third graders in the nine elementary schools. About 1500 dictionaries were given out.

Who knows what else we will accomplish before this Rotary year ends? Tune in to find out!


Thanks for helping us.


Dear fellow Rotarians,

Our planned dictionary distribution went so well. We made many, many third grade students and their teacher happy. Hooray!
Our high school Interact Club had another successful year with many activities including two builds for Habitat for Humanity. Our Interact Club at North Middle School worked on a few projects including a pet fun filled one. They look forward to doing even more next school year.
Two high school scholarships were given to two deserving seniors. Those winners were entertained at our Rotary Club meeting. The valedictorians and salutatorians practiced their graduation speeches at another meeting. It was a busy June.
We recently supported the Brentwood Presbyterian Church with their children’s Fun Fair. Also to help the children was the Lodge of Antiquity doing a Child ID program. It was a fun afternoon.
Over the summer we had some interesting speakers including the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Eric Horn. He informed us of some of the immigration issues with young children at our southern border. We also had Fred Kruger from the Commack Kings Park Rotary Club deliver on Disaster Awareness and Preparation.
Upcoming events include The Chamber of Commerce Gala on September 18 at 7pm at the Brentwood Country Club. Our very own Jay Satenstein will be honored that evening.
On Wednesday, October 22nd, our club will be hosting a Women of the Year Dinner at the Bella Verde Restaurant in Brentwood. Donna Keller, Interact Club at the HS and Ann Schnal of Southwest Elementary School will be honored.
We look forward to our holiday party in December at Southwest Elementary School for our Special Needs students..

Dear fellow Rotarians,

Our goal in 2017 is to Engage Rotary, Change Lives . All of us know that Rotary has incredible potential to do good work. It’s time to recognize how much more we could be doing and start working on new ways to turn that potential into reality. We’re going to do this by engaging Rotarians – by getting them involved, by getting them inspired, and by making sure that all Rotarians know just what a gift they have in Rotary.

We’re going to make sure that the work we do in Rotary is solid, effective, and sustainable. And we’re going to make sure that Rotary itself will last – by committing to our goal of 1.3 million Rotarians in our clubs by the year 2015.

That goal is a little different from membership goals we’ve had in the past. The goal isn’t just bringing in new members. The goal is growing Rotary. The goal is making Rotary bigger, not just with more members, but with more involved, engaged, motivated members who will be the ones to lead us into our future.

Each of us has our own reason for joining Rotary – but I believe we all want to make a difference. We all want to be doing something meaningful. That is absolutely essential for us to remember when we talk about membership.

We’re not asking just anyone to join Rotary. We’re looking to attract busy, successful, motivated people who care. We’re asking them to take their valuable time and give it to Rotary. So if they say yes, and they come and join our club, then we’d better be showing them that their time in Rotary is well spent.

We have to make sure that every Rotarian, in every club, has a meaningful job – one that makes a real difference to the club and the community. Because when you’re doing something meaningful in Rotary, Rotary is meaningful to you.

In Rotary, we all have something to give. At every stage of our lives and our careers, Rotary has something for all of us – a way to let us do more, be more, and give more. Rotary gives our lives more meaning, more purpose, and greater satisfaction. And the more we give through Rotary, the more Rotary gives back to us in return.
