PROCEDURES FOR CLUB MEETINGS!

Our Club meetings follow these procedures:

  • Our speaker will start at 12:20 pm and will speak for about 20 minutes
  • Meals will be served at 12:40 pm
  • When you arrive you will select what you want to eat by placing a mark by any of the five menu items and then taking the corresponding numbered 'tent' and placing it in front of you wherever you choose to sit.
  • There will be a counter that will have beverages of ice tea, coke, and diet coke - please help yourself!  Water will already be placed at the tables.

Brief Overview of Rotary
StoryThumbnail
Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations. 

The Waterford-Drayton Rotary club was founded in 1944. Since then there has been a name change and female members started to join. As much as Rotary has changed over the years, two things have stayed the same: service above self was always the target and meetings were always held at noon on Tuesdays. Waterford Rotary’s involvement in Waterford schools included establishing an InterAct club in both Waterford high schools, and giving out over 10,000 pine tree seedlings to all the Waterford Schools kindergarten classes. Other projects include: worldwide fight against Polio, scholarship programs, literacy projects, historical society building projects and Rotary Park. Ask a member about joining today!
