The Crookston Rotary Club meets monthly on the second and third Wednesdays at the Crookston Inn though the months of November and December, and typically August, are spent concentrating on service projects.

    Switching out regular club meetings for service projects is something the Rotary now looks forward to as a way to give back to the community even more. In the recent months they have volunteered at and hosted Ox Cart Days events, adopted a portion of Highway 75 and held a clean-up day, delivered treats to the police and fire departments on September 11, sold and delivered roses for the 23rd annual Rose Sale, participated in the International Day of Peace event at UMC, delivered meals for RiverView’s Meals on Wheels program (Home Delivered Meals), and look forward to ringing the bell for the Salvation Army and filling food baskets for the annual Armory event.
