Brief Overview of Rotary

Posted by Katherine Dyer
story thumbnail
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!
