Welcome to the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club Website. We are located at the "Crossroads of Dixie" in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee which is 75 miles south of Nashville. Weekly meetings are held each Friday at 12:00 Noon in Lawrenceburg Rotary Park's Beasley Hall. We have approximately 90 members who represent a cross section of our county's business, professional, and public service community. Our club was chartered in 1947 and has been active in Rotary's Five Avenues of Service for over 65 years. Lawrenceburg Rotarians are encouraged to practice the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self" under the guidance of the 4-Way Test.
Lawrenceburg Rotary's major projects are production of the Middle Tennessee District Fair and partnership with the City of Lawrenceburg for maintenance and development of Lawrenceburg Rotary Park. The park is a multi-use facility consisting of a public swimming pool, three gymnasiums, a covered pavilion, lighted show ring with grandstand seating for up to 4,000 people; plus playground, picnic shelters, and other facilities.
Lawrenceburg Rotary Park is home to club sponsored events including the Middle Tennessee District Fair and the Rumble at the Crossroads Truck and Tractor Pull. Other community organizations hold events at Lawrenceburg Rotary Park including the Crossroads of Dixie Antique Tractor and Engine Show and the Chamber of Commerce sponsored Christmas in the Country.
The Middle Tennessee District Fair is our signature event. The fair runs annually during the fourth week in September and is consistently one of the largest and finest in Tennessee. Revenues from the fair make possible our support of Lawrenceburg Rotary Park and other local and international service projects.
Lawrenceburg is active in Rotary District 6760. Four local Rotarians have served as District Governor, and numerous others have been recognized for service at the district level. Two have received the highest individual honor bestowed by Rotary International, the RI Service Above Self Award. For a complete listing, click here to view our Club History.
