Led by current President Sharon Hurley, the Asheville – Metro Club has been a very active organization since it was chartered; activities have included volunteering every month at MANNA FoodBank, building a Little Free Library for the Coxe Avenue Bus Terminal (soon to be installed), managing a Rotary Global Grant to provide sustainability for a prosthetics clinic in Ecuador, and raising funds for The Rotary Foundation. The Club has received a 100% Sustaining Member award from the Rotary Foundation in each year since being chartered.

The Rotary Club of Asheville – Metro meets the 1st and 2nd Tuesdays at 5:30 pm in the conference room at the Grove Arcade. The third meeting of the month is devoted to volunteering at MANNA, and the club enjoys dinner at a local restaurant every 4th Thursday. Everyone is welcome to attend.
