SO WHAT IS ROTARY?

Rotary is a community of friends who are committed to creating positive change in the world. Rotary brings together people and community leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations to share their ideas  to make the world a better place. By combining their distinct and vast skills and expertise, members of Rotary are tackling some of humanity’s greater challenges from local initiatives like feeding the hungry to global focus and efforts like eradicating polio. This all begins with weekly club meetings, where members catch up with friends, hear what’s happening in their community, organize club events/activities and service projects. It’s a fun way to connect with the people in your community who share your passion for doing good.
