In 1909, the Rotary Club of Los Angeles (LA5) was founded on the principles of "the promotion of the business interests of its members," to "advance loyalty, good fellowship and sociability among its members," and "to further the best interests of Los Angeles." Today, LA5 continues these principles through social and business events, service projects, and by contributing funds both locally and internationally. LA5's hundreds of members all share a deep passion for service to our community and are committed to Rotary International’s tenet of "service above self", and we happen to make lifelong friends while we are at it.
