Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto: Service above Self.
Whether at home or abroad, our members are found in more than 200 countries, so we are in the unique position of being able to reach people in need wherever they are.
