With Milton Hershey as an Honorary Member, The Rotary Club of Hershey was founded in 1943. Our club consists of over 130 of the area’s most respected business, professional and civic leaders. We get together at weekly lunch meetings, and other functions, to fulfill our commitment to the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship and service to others. We welcome you to learn more about our club and consider becoming a member.
