The mission of Rotary is to provide service to others, to promote high ethical standards and to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
Rotarians join because of business, personal growth and development, leadership development, citizenship in the community, continuing education, fun, public speaking skills, world citizenship, entertainment, and development of ethics.
They meet every morning at 7am at the Des Moines Golf & Country Club
The Waukee Rotary is Proud to donate nearly half of its proceeds to local and international charitable causes that help needy people in our community and around the world!

ABOUT MAJOR'S ARMY
Major's Army is a family team of fundraisers who raise money for Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease. Funding is scarce for a rare disease like CF, the government providing no support for research into the disease and treatments for it. With more funding, not only can we speed up the progress leading to the cure for this debilitating disease, but provide a new research model for other diseases, too.
