The Rotary Club of Yreka was chartered in 1946. It has been an integral part of the Yreka community for more than 70 years.
Motto is "Service above Self".
The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders
