WHO ARE WE …

 

The Rotary Club of Texas City is a group of professional men and women who live or work in Texas City and the surrounding communities.  Our club meets over lunch every Tuesday at noon for fellowship and to discuss current local and global topics as well as various issues relevant to the practice and promotion of the Rotary ideals in our business and personal lives.

Our club is diverse in educational background and experience.  Current membership includes attorneys, bankers, city officials, educators, physicians and other professionals.  Anyone can become a Rotarian as long as he or she (1) holds, or is retired from, a professional, proprietary, executive or managerial position, (2) has the capacity to meet Rotary’s weekly attendance and participation requirements, and (3) lives or works in the Texas City or the surrounding area.
