About Us

Rotary Club of Eagle River

Our club was founded on May 21, 1928, sponsored by the Crandon club, which later disbanded.

The Club helped start the World Championship Snowmobile Derby and was key to construction of the Eagle River hospital by being an early contributor to the project.

We belong to District 6220. Our Club number is 2661.
