Welcome to Oak Ridge Rotary Club Breakfast
Welcome to the website of Tennessee’s first early morning Rotary Club, the Oak Ridge Rotary Club Breakfast (ORBRC). We are a club of some 90 members who seek to accomplish good things in the community and in the world, and have fun doing so. ORBRC is one of 33,000 Rotary Clubs affiliated worldwide with Rotary International, the world’s largest organization of civic clubs. We support Rotary International’s programs and endorse its Four-Way Test as an ideal of personal conduct. This website offers much information about ORBRC, its members, and its activities. Information about Rotary International is available at www.rotary.org.

A 301-bed regional medical center, Methodist is one of the first hospitals in East Tennessee
to offer cutting-edge treatments and technologies that benefit people with life-threatening
aneurysms; severely damaged knee, hip and shoulder joints; sudden heart failure;
and non-healing wounds.
In addition to offering a wide array of services, Methodist prides itself on a culture of patient
safety and quality care, and has been the recipient of several national award rankings.
Methodist was recently awarded an “A” grade in the Fall 2015 Hospital Safety Score rankings
