Welcome to the online home of the Rotary Club of Cedar Rapids West!


Cedar Rapids West was founded on March 26, 1980.  We meet at noon on Wednesdays at the

African American Museum of IA.  Our club is known for our inviting atmosphere and great fellowship.

We value service, education, fun, fellowship and creativity.


Our club mission is Service Supporting Learning and on ongoing service work includes a partnership

with Van Buren Elementary School in providing classroom and after-school volunteers.  We also

sponsor an Interact Club at Washington High School (Interact is Rotary International’s service club for

young people up to age 18).


This year we continue to raise money to support “Back to School Backpacks”, and annual program of the HD Youth Center in collaboration with other local nonprofits.  Our fundraising also supports scholarships for area high school seniors to attend Kirkwood Community College, and for high school students to attend the mid-summer Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference.


We recognize outstanding public servants and teachers from each of the metro area high schools with our Service Above Self awards.  In addition, we are partnering with a Rotary Club in Ghana to provide clean drinking water for people in southeastern Ghana.


I invite you to explore our website and get to know more about our club and our service projects.  We hope you will come visit us at noon on Wednesday at the African American Museum of IA!


Yours in Rotary,



Jim Coller
