Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area

Who We Are:

The Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area (formerly Humble Rotary) is composed of a diverse group of men and women who are business and community leaders that join together, build friendships, exchange ideas, take action and change lives while serving the community. We were chartered in 1967 and the club presently has over 80 members.

The motto of Rotary is "Service Above Self" and that is what guides us. We give back to the community by volunteering our time, talent and resources to help those in need of an opportunity to improve their lives.

This may mean donating money to social service organizations that provide food, sheltering, clothes, and/or counseling to those in less than desirable situations; it may mean mentoring with students to help them with their education; it may mean providing books to preschool students to assist them in developing a love for reading; it may be providing scholarships to high school seniors wanting to further their education; it may mean promoting world peace through the understanding of other cultures via Rotary’s Youth Exchange program; it may mean providing disaster relief in the U.S. and/or around the world; and it may mean joining with other Rotary Clubs to meet humanitarian needs in other countries by providing water supplies, health care, clothing etc.

Our Vision and Mission:

Our Vision: Be a vibrant organization that attracts leaders, builds friendships, exchanges ideas & takes action to serve the community. Our Mission: We will change lives by providing opportunities.

What we do/have done:

We have invested more than $1.8 million in humanitarian needs over the past 19 years. Included are more than $480,000 to social service organizations such as HAAM, Village Learning Center, Mission NE, YMCA, FamilyTime, Boy Scouts, Including Kids, Oaks of Righteousness, Rotary Rose Group and more. We have invested more than $145,000 in FFA scholarships and another $110,000 + of other scholarships. We mentor students as part of the Junior Rotarian Program, We help Sleep in Heavenly Peace build beds and provide funding for mattresses and bedding for Houston area children with no bed of their own.
During the past year we have invested more than $100,000 in humanitarian needs.
One of our premier projects was the Children of the Dump in Chinandega, Nicaragua, where children were depending on the local dump for their source of food. This project has been supported by other Rotary Clubs and has progressed to the point that several of the Children of the Dump recently graduated from college. Over 1,700 children now attend school.

Where do our funds come from?

Our charity fundraisers include an annual Golf Tournament and annual Corvette Car Raffle. Our fall golf tournament was moved from the fall to the spring due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since its restart after the pandemic, it's been held in May.
We start selling tickets for the car raffle in February and choose the winner in May or June. Raffle tickets are available from club members and online at
