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.
