About Us

The New Bern Rotary Club was founded in 1920, fifteen years after Paul Harris and three others formed the first club in Chicago.  The oldest and largest Rotary Club in New Bern, we meet at lunch each Tuesday at the Chelsea Restaurant downtown.

Our club is involved with numerous local charities such as the Literacy Council, Craven County Partners In Education, RCS, and Wash Away Unemployment. We also support community nonprofits with funding earmarked for special projects.
