Founded in 1990, the Keene Elm City Rotary club is a member of Rotary International, District 7870. Our 60-plus members utilize their skills, experience and resources to fulfill and encourage the Rotary ideal of “Service Over Self.”

The Keene Elm City Rotary Club values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Our club takes part in a wide range of community service projects and helps support other nonprofits in the Monadnock region through its allocation fund.
The Keene Elm City Rotary club is active in encouraging, fostering and participating in the advancement of understanding and goodwill among peoples of the world.
The Clarence DeMar marathon is our annual community health and fundraising event. It includes a full marathon, which is a qualifying race for the Boston marathon, as well as the Kid’s DeMar and Super Seniors marathons.
