First Flight Rotary Club and Foundation

First Flight Rotary Club

First Flight Rotary Club is a diverse group of business and professional men and women from the Outer Banks who have come together to help our community, our country, and our world. We do this following the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self

In addition to fun networking and friendship at meetings, the Club performs service projects throughout the year and raises money through its annual Oink & Oyster Roast, Putt Putt for Polio, and other smaller events. Major charity efforts include the First Flight High School Band (“best shucking marching band in America!”), to FFHS career and technical education, to the Outer Banks Food Pantry, to Special Olympics, to Alzheimer’s research, to many other Outer Banks non-profits.

The Club has several membership categories, including memberships for part time residents of the Outer Banks who want to be active while here. Click here to learn more about membership in First Flight Rotary Club.
