What is Rotary?
Rotary International is an association of Rotary clubs worldwide. It’s made up of more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. The members of these autonomous clubs are called Rotarians, and they form a global network of 1.2 million business and professional leaders, all volunteering their time and talents to serve their communities and the world. Individual Rotary clubs, in turn, belong to the global association called Rotary International.
Who we are:
- We are the rotary club of the Delta and Waverly area, with a membership of about 55 community leaders. We are called the Delta-Waverly Rotary Club and were chartered in 1969.
- Rotary was founded in 1905 by Paul Harris from Chicago. They rotated offices to meet and network.
- Rotary consists of 30,000 clubs and 1.2 million members in 170 countries. Headquarter in Evanston, IL.
- Our name is derived from the “Rotary Wheel” seen above, in which each spoke represents a community leader in a given vocation.
- Rotary’s motto: Service Above Self.
Four way test of the things we think, say, or do…
- First – Is it the truth?
- Second – Is it fair to all concerned?
- Third – Will it build good will and better friendships?
- Fourth – Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
What Rotary can do for you…
We can offer you the opportunity to join other community leaders in fostering good fellowship and good works, in conjunction with a worldwide network of men and women, with the commitment to service above self.
Eradicating Polio Worldwide
Rotary’s commitment to global polio eradication began in 1979 with a five-year project to immunize 6 million Philippine children against this devastating disease. After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.
Rotary is in a campaign to raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.
