About Our Club

Since 1946, the Rotary Club of Nome has been an active leader in the community of Nome, Alaska. Our club meets every Wednesday at 12 Noon. We welcome you to join us during any weekly meeting at Nome's Airport Pizza! Drop by to learn more about the club or what is taking place in the community, the region, or the state through one of our weekly speakers.  While the club's biggest commitment to the community comes through the presentation of scholarships to Nome youth, the club has been involved in numerous projects since its conception.
