What is Rotary? from Rotary International on Vimeo.

Who We Are:

Rotarians are leaders in their vocation, profession, and community. We meet weekly to discuss improving the lives of people, both locally and globally, We need and encourage diversity of membership in order to be more effective in this task. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” and Rotary is an organization of over 33,000 local clubs serving their communities around the world.

As Rotarian Winston Chruchill once said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

  • Make a Positive Difference in your Local Community
