What We Do


Local Projects & Community Service

Imagination Library
Free books for kids from birth to their fifth birthday living in the Paw Paw Public School District.
Annual 5K Santa Run
Our most popular event of the year is always sure to bring some holiday cheer.  
Maple Lake Amphitheatre
The Paw Paw Area Rotary Club was instrumental in fundraising and bringing this wonderful project to life.  Our volunteers still spend time keeping it looking sharp for summer events.
Rotary Fountain
Located in the heart of downtown Paw Paw Between Michigan Avenue and the Van Buren County Courthouse.
Trees for Troops
Sponsored by Wahmhoff Farms, Rotary volunteers assist in loading trees onto the trucks bound for US Military Bases.
Flowers in Veteran's Memorial Park
Not only was Rotary involved in fundraising for the initial development of this park, but we continue to provide funding for upkeep and beautification.  
Michigan Avenue Academy
This is one of our oldest and favorite partnerships.  We recognize and award a Student of the Month throughout the school year.  We also award a college scholarship at graduation to one lucky and deserving student.  

Other Local Projects

International Projects

Polio Vaccinations
Thanks to Rotary International, The World Health Organization, and others, our mission to eradicate polio is nearly complete.  
Bio-Sand Water Filters
Many underdeveloped countries do not have access to clean water sources or families have to walk many miles for clean water.  These filters help supply clean water to those homes.
Paul Harris Society
Paul Harris founded the first Rotary club in 1905.  This foundation supports the mission of Rotary across the globe.  Anyone may donate.  Those who donate $1,000 or more are recognized as Paul Harris Fellows.
