The Rotary Club of St. Charles is committed to "Service Above Self" and focuses on five areas that include club service, vocational service, community service, international service, and New Generations service.

The club meets weekly for a noon lunch meeting, which includes general business, introduction of guests, a presentation from a guest speaker, and updates on club fundraising. People living or working in St. Charles with interest in the Rotary Club are welcome to attend a lunch meeting as a guest of a fellow Rotarian.

The club embodies service in action. For example, this club has assisted in the building of a library and school in a rural area of Guatemala; has sent emergency aid to Haiti; has financially supported local nonprofits; has contributed funds to Rotary International's goal of worldwide eradication of Polio.

In addition, the club has provided more than $64,000 in local scholarships over the past six years. Rotary members are business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
