To those of you visiting this web site, I say Welcome!

There are 35,000 Rotary Clubs on six continents and in virtually every country on the planet. But we are the only Sugar Land Club in the world committed to serving our friends and neighbors in the Sugar Land area including Missouri City, Stafford and Meadows Place.

Service is the action verb of the near 40-year history of this club. To us service involves action that makes our area and its people better off than they were. Our members serve by being a Scout Leader, being a city Council member, helping Seniors who require it, filling needs of women living in a shelter, filling the needs of schools who cannot operate without volunteers, supporting law enforcement when its never been more important and a hundred other things you will think of if you open your imagination.
We shamelessly ask you to join us in our quest and become a member of this great organization. There is great camaraderie among people who are serving others so we share even more than fun.
This is an especially poignant time of year when we arrange our club leadership differently. Darla Alston is soon to be our past President and Natalie Lerner will become the President Elect and I am honored to fit between two great leaders and work to make 2022/23 the most meaningful for our members. Each Rotary Club is unique but part of a District. We are especially  fortunate to have a District with sound,  tested leaders who help keep us on the path we have chosen as the club serving the Sugar Land area..
Our Rotary Club is diverse as is the community we serve and we think it makes us better at serving by understanding  our mix of professions, genders, ages and ethnicities. We enjoy a great lunch each Wednesday at Sugar Creek Country Club and also take a half hour to be updated on issues by key leaders in our community. In July our speakers include former Congressman Pete Olson, the Sugar Land City manager, Jim Goodrum, and our new School Superintendent, Christie Whitbeck. There is nothing like having lunch with people like that in an up close setting.
Please visit our web site in detail, consider how Rotary might just be a good fit in your life, then reach out to me or our membership Director (Chair) and let's get rolling.

Each year we raise money to eradicate polio around the world.  In 2021 we had a fun and successful "Pies for Polio Day" to raise awareness of this program and raise funds.  Thanks to everyone who participated and donated!!
Past President, Assistant Governor, and active Rotarian Rick Smith was named Rotarian of the Year by President Jim Munnell at the last meeting of the 33rd year of Sugar Land Rotary Club.  Congratulations Rick!   A well-deserved award!
On June 21, Sugar Land Rotary installed a new slate of officers for 2017-18 that includes Jim Munnell, President; Margie Connelly, President-Elect; Rebecca Deurlein, Vice-President, Lerleen Hawkins, Secretary; Raleigh Bailes, Jr., Treasurer; Sergeant-at-Arms, Tabb Dye, and Rick Smith, Past-President. The newly installed Rotary president, Jim Munnell, thanked all of the club members and especially Rick Smith who served as president the past year. Under Smith's leadership, the club received an award as the No. 1 Medium-sized Club in District 5890.
President Rick Smith is installed to his position by District 5890 Governor Elect while his wife Kim looks on.
And congratulations to 2016 Rotarian of the Year Margie Connolly AND our Hall of Fame addition Robert Walters.
Join us and invite your local Sugar Land Friends and Family as our club hosts a mayoral candidate debate on April 27th, 2016 from 11:30am - 1:30pm in the Sweetwater Country Club Ballroom. Cost is $15, lunch is included.
Sugar Land Rotary was honored to be able to donate $5000 each to the Fort Bend YMCA for their Summer Camp Program in the Four Corners Neighborhood of Fort Bend County AND to the Literacy Council of Fort Bend to aid in funding their GED program which teaches students what they need to know to get their GEDs to improve both their lives and the communities around them.
Sugar Land Rotary Club honored Fireman Johnathan Vance and Police Officer Tuan-Huy Tran as Fireman and Police Officer of the Year for the City of Sugar Land.  We had GREAT attendance and enjoyed hearing from both gentleman. In addition to our honorees we also had an opportunity to ask questions of Police Chief Doug Brinkley and Fire Chief Juan Adame of the City of Sugar Land. It was a great question and answer session where I think everyone learned a little more about the expectations of both departments for their personnel.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular, to encourage and foster:
First: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
Second: High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
Third: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
Fourth: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
Of the things we think, say, or do:
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4 . Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The following code of conduct has been adopted for the use of Rotarians:
As a Rotarian, I will 
1. Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life
2. Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect
3. Use my professional skills through Rotary to: mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve people's quality of life in my community and in the world 
4. Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians
5. Help maintain a harassment-free environment in Rotary meetings, events, and activities, report
any suspected harassment, and help ensure non-retaliation to those individuals that report harassment.
