Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs, Texas. We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, suggest a project or are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs. Our local activities include:

  • Host the  Dripping Springs Home and Garden Show
  • Supports DS High School Interact Club
  • Awards scholarships to DS High School students
  • Support DS students to attend Camp Enterprise
  • Send students to the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA)
  • Supporting the local food bank, Helping Hands
  • Sponsor children through Project Elf through Helping Hands
  • Donate gifts to Operation Brown Santa through Interact
  • Highway Clean up on Ranch Road 12 twice per year
  • Helping The Burke Center, home for disadvantaged youths, with repairs and improvements, including refurbishing the horse barn
  • Host an annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day
  • Contribute to the local Veterans of Foreign War/American Legion
  • Support Polio Plus through “Pints for Polio”
  • Supported district fundraisers for grant programs
  • Supported the Tiger Reader Program, benefitting DSISD
  • HEB Community Challenge
  • Host a diaper drive for Foster Village
  • Provide a shuttle from the high school to Founders Day
  • Host weekly programs relevant to our community

To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers. All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

We meet Monday at noon at Flores Mexican Restaurant, two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on Highway 290.  We conduct club business, have social time for the members and have a wide variety of speakers discussing issues that impact our community, our country, or internationally.

Stop by, you don't need a reservation, or drop us a note and we will answer any questions about our club.
