About Us

The Rotary Club of Vinings-Cumberland was chartered in November 1989 with 37 chartered members and now boasts 72 very active members. Our reach in the community and across the globe has been well documented.

Locally, our signature annual fund raising event, the successful Vinings Down Hill 5K, enables our club to grant worthwhile charities financial resources to continue and build. Additionally, we’ve initiated and sponsor with manpower and resources many projects including, but naming just a few:
