Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves.
Rotary membership gives men and women an opportunity to forge new friendships and share the rewards of helping others through volunteer service.
The Rotary club meeting is a chance for members to socialize, network, and plan service activities based on local needs and their own interests and talents. In addition Rotary clubs often team up with clubs in other countries to carry out international service projects, enhancing members’ cross-cultural understanding. Rotary clubs are open to people of every race, culture, and creed.
