The Rotarians in Incline Village have been busy raising money and awareness to improve our community. Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. We invite you to join us—at one of our fun events, as a prospective member or as a supportive neighbor! Please join us for these upcoming events:
Right now, the Incline Village Noon club is in its final push to raise funds for the year by selling ducks for the Annual Duck Drop – a fun raffle held at 9 a.m. on Labor Day at the Village Green – where thousands of little rubber duckies are dropped in heats from a fire truck ladder onto a huge target. Winners will win $100, $250, $500, or $1,000 if they purchased ducks for $10 or 3 for $20. Big spenders who purchased platinum ducks at $100 have the chance to win a pot of up to $7,500! You can still purchase tickets at Incline Cleaners or by texting (510) 334-5343. The funds raised from this raffle support various programs and scholarships around town including Norther NV Children’s Cancer Foundation, Lake Tahoe Community College, Tahoe Family Solutions, and many more.
The morning club invites you to our annual FUNd-raiser: Best Ball Four A Cause on October 1st at The Incline Village Mountain Golf Course. Join us for a 9-hole Best Ball Tournament. BBQ, silent auction, raffles, putting competitions, prizes and much more FUN to be had! No golf experience is required—just a fun spirit and to do something good for our local community! The event raises money to support Incline Village community needs, youth services, education, scholarships, and global health.

Rotary supports local youth in many ways, including leadership camps for high school(RYLA) and for 8th graders, REGL, which takes place in September at Grizzly Camp in Portola. There is also an Interact Club at the high school, giving students volunteer opportunities. Both clubs support these programs and offer their own scholarships to graduating seniors. This year, Incline is hosting an exchange student from Italy.
The Rotary Club of Incline Village (“noon club”) meets at noon each Monday in the Parasol building at 948 Incline Way. The Club of Tahoe-Incline (“morning club”) meets at 7 a.m. on Thursdays at the Hyatt. Come visit! And we will see you at Duck Drop and Best Ball For a Cause!
Rotary International is a global network of citizens who unite and take action to make our communities and the world a better place and our local clubs in Incline Village reflect that sentiment in all that they do.
