The Rotary Club of Lockport, Illinois 

Welcome to our Club website.
We're glad you're here

Since 1966 the Rotary Club of Lockport has been a who's who of the area's business and civic leadership.  The "Service Above Self" motto of Rotary has served as a driver for the club's membership.  The benevolent nature of our events is unheralded and has turned these fund raising efforts and community service projects into quite the social events.  If you are at all interested in checking us out, please contact us at and plan to visit us at our next meting!  Please check our event calendar for our meeting schedule as this dynamic club offers up a dynamic schedule of breakfast, lunch and social meetings.  We look forward to introducing you to the rest of the club!

Reno Caneva Visits with the Club at our July 19th Meeting

Dr. Reno Caneva, author of the new book "Dellwood Chronicles", describes the journey in developing his work.  The book took 5 years to write, however this pales in comparison to the nearly 40 years of research he put into the book.  This journey "took me places I thought I'd never be."

Dr. Reno Caneva is father of Lockport Rotarian Dr. Daryl Caneva and grandfather to Dr. Andres Caneva.  Copies of  "Dellwood Chronicles"
can be obtained by contacting the author at or at the Lockport Township Park District 1911 Lawrence Ave., Lockport, IL.


On June 28, 2018 Kelly DeLaFuente was installed as the Club's President for 2018-19.  Here she is pictured with Past President John McNulty at the installation dinner held at Prairie Bluff Golf Club.

We hope you join us at our next meeting!
