We are guided by the principals of The Four-Way Test:

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?

  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?


  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Rotary's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. 

We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs. 

Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive. 

We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong. 

In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.

Centennial Year 2021

The year 2021 Rotary Club of Petoskey celebrated its 100th anniversary. Chartered November 4, 1921, the Rotary Club of Petoskey has been a leader in service to our community and world from Petoskey, Michigan. Currently we are over 86 members strong. 100 years of Service above Self is quite an achievement; one that the club wants to continue for the next 100 years.

As people of action, the Rotary Club of Petoskey began with a local group of community leaders organizing to improve our community and have some fun while doing it. 100 years later that is still the mission of the Rotary Club of Petoskey. As Rotary clubs formed across America in the early 20th century, in 1921 the club was formed here with the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Traverse City. After the founding of the Petoskey club, the club sponsored other clubs in Northern Michigan including Charlevoix, Gaylord and the Petoskey Sunrise Rotary Club. Rotary was literally catching on like wild fire.

The Rotary Club of Petoskey meets weekly for lunch and lively discussions at Stafford’s Perry hotel. Last year challenged us as a service club to continue our mission while being apart and socially distanced. We have been back meeting together for a period of time and success. Our meetings include a featured speaker, fellowship, food and fun. Please join us as a guest at Noon; contact a Rotarian for more information.

At present, the Rotary Club of Petoskey is contributing approximately $277,315.85 towards the Winter Sports Park in putting a roof over the hockey rink which will shield it from the elements and keep it usable in spite of inclement weather. The Winter Sports Park is part of the parks system in the City of Petoskey and they will have to secure additional funds in order to fulfill this project and make it a reality. Keep watching for further progress on this project.
