Take Action With Us!

Meet Lake Placid Noon

We’re the Lake Placid Noon Rotary, home of the World Famous Wild Game Dinner. Our club was chartered in 1986 and we join the more than 1.4 million Rotarians worldwide.
As part of Rotary International, our club supports the 7 Avenues of Service:
   • Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
   • Disease Prevention and Treatment
   • Water and Sanitation
   • Maternal and Child Health
   • Basic Education and Literacy
   • Economic and Community Development
   • Protecting the Environment
The World Famous Wild Game Dinner is our primary fund raiser; the money raised is used in our community to support the Avenues of Service.

Rotary clubs bring together people across generations who share the ideals of service, leadership, diversity, friendship, and integrity and wish to create lasting change in the world, in their communities, and in themselves.

There are 6 Rotary Clubs in Highlands County; if our club doesn’t fit into your schedule, you might consider another. 

World Famous Wild Game Dinner

Since 2004, the Lake Placid Noon Rotary has hosted our primary fund raiser - the World Famous Wild Game Dinner. Held annually on the first Saturday in December, this event is one of Highlands County’s largest.

Tickets include all you care to eat, free beer and wine, free commemorative tee shirt, live music, silent and live auctions, door prizes, cash bar and more fun than you can imagine. Elite VIP admission is available and includes complementary premium bar and gourmet appetizers, as well as early entry into the event. 



The Lake Placid Noon Rotary is proud to present local graduating seniors thousands of dollars in scholarships for continuing education.

Freedom Flight

Each year, local Rotary Clubs send veterans to Washington, DC to visit military memorials. In our club, the trip is entirely paid for by funds from the Wild Game Dinner.

Dragon's Den

We happily support the Dragon's Den, a food bank located at the Lake Placid Middle School. In addition to cash raised from the WGD, we host two collection events each year.

Rotary Park

Located in heart of downtown Lake Placid, Rotary Park was established and is maintained by members. Wild Game Dinner funds provide planting supplies. A memorial brick project is also located there.

Miracle League

Miracle League provides opportunity for disabled individuals to play ball. All equipment and uniforms are provided so athletes can play with assistance.

4th Grade Dictionaries

Each 4th grade public and private student in Lake Placid schools is given a student dictionary. For many, this is the first book they have ever owned.

These are just a few of the projects we support annually. We donate to Future Farmers of America, Youth Sports programs, student leadership training, and local veterans programs.


We meet every Thursday at Beef O'Brady's at 110 Plaza Avenue in Lake Placid, FL. Everyone is welcome to attend to learn more about Rotary and our club. Lunch is available.
