What is Rotary and What Do We Do?
Rotary is a worldwide organization of men and women who are business and professional leaders. Rotary provides humanitarian services, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarian’s belong to more than 31,000 Rotary clubs located in 166 countries.
The main objective of Rotary is service in the workplace, in the community and throughout the world. Rotarian’s develop and support community service projects to address needs in their local communities and in the international community. Rotarian’s sponsor international student exchanges for high school age youth, offer college scholarships for foreign study and provide cross-cultural learning experiences for business and professional persons. Through the Polio Plus Program, Rotary has been a leader in the eradication of Polio worldwide. The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self."
