Financial Obligations and Attendance Requirements
Financial Obligations
  • The cost of dues (club, district, and Rotary International) is $200 per year. The cost of meals is $50 per month. For this $800 per year cost, you will be billed $200 each quarter.
  • Statements of dues are emailed to the address you have on file. Please submit your payment by check to the club secretary or treasurer.
Other Financial Considerations
  • In our annual fundraiser, we have historically raised $45,000-$50,000. We ask that you fundraise at least $600 (sell 30 tickets).
  • We hold an auction every year to raise money for Armful of Love to provide families with Christmas presents. We hope that you will participate by either donating (or finding a donor) for the auction, or bidding in the auction. What you spend is your choice.
  • We ask our members to give annually to The Rotary Foundation. The extent of this gift is your choice.
  • We occasionally have social events, and sometimes these events have a cost. This cost is typically not covered by the club. Your attendance is optional.
  • Our meetings include a variety of fines, and a raffle. You can be fined for showing up late, skipping a meeting and not documenting your make-up, getting trivia questions wrong, or paying a “happy fine” to share news you’re excited about. Members are typically fined $1-$3 per week.
  • We also hold a weekly raffle, which is entirely voluntary.
Attendance Requirements
As a member of our club you are responsible for attending at least 50 percent of weekly club meetings in a six-month period.
Attendance Options
If you’re unable to attend a meeting, you can make-up that meeting by attending a meeting of another Rotary club (local, online, or elsewhere). Use the club finder at to find meeting locations and times. Club activities such as board meetings and service projects are also allowable make-ups, as are district wide events.
If you’d like to make-up a meeting at another Rotary club in this area:
  • The Rosemount Rotary meets at noon on Fridays at Fireside Restaurant in Rosemount.
  • The Rotary Club of Eagan meets at noon on Wednesdays at the Eagan Community Center.
  • Eagan Kick-Start Rotary meets at 7am on Thursdays at Granite City in Eagan. 
Please verify times and locations have not changed before attending another club’s meeting.
