Message from the Club President

Welcome to our Club website!

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster (1) the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; (2) high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; (3) the application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; and (4) the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.



Rotarians are a diverse group of business, professional, and civic leaders who take an active role in the  communities they serve.  Chartered in 1984, The Rotary Club of Stuart-Sunrise is a networking and service organization in Martin County.  Our members support a number of local community and civic projects, as well as international projects that bring needed capital improvements to some of the most impoverished parts of the world.


Our club is composed of business, community and professional leaders that reflect a wide cross-section of our community.  We Rotarians desire to improve the lives of those less fortunate, make the world a better place, and are committed to fulfilling Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”  If you do business in the Stuart area, our club offers you an opportunity to network with people who operate their business affairs on the highest level of integrity and ethics.


Our club foundation funds projects that have a direct impact in our local community and around the world.  Close to home, we distribute dictionaries to third graders in Martin County schools, promote water safety for young children, and recognize the best and the brightest in Martin County and South Fork High School through student scholarships. We have supported Habitat for Humanity, Martin County Healthy Start Coalition, the Humane Society of the the Treasure Coast among many others. Internationally, we support Rotary International’s efforts to rid the world of polio, and we participate with local Central American Rotary Clubs to support the Guatemala Tomorrow Fund and the Ak'Tenamit Project. We have joined our District's efforts to provide disaster relief in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands. This year we are planning a Rise Against Hunger event that will be a collaborative effort with other organizations.


If you would like to learn more about our Rotary club,  the best way to get to know us is to attend one of our club meetings. We meet every Thursday morning at 7:30 am at Monarch Country Club (directions and meeting information here).  If you are interested in learning about Rotary International, please click here.



Yours in Rotary Service,


Kathy Lockhart

President, 2017-18
