Our motto, SERVICE ABOVE SELF, embodies our humanitarian spirit. Rotary’s Avenues of Service guide our activities:
Through Club Service, we have fun, build lasting friendships, and make sure that our club runs well
Through Vocational Service, we volunteer our professional skills to serve others and promote integrity in everything we do
Through Community Service , we address local needs and work with our community to bring lasting improvements
Through International Service, we meet humanitarian needs around the globe and promote world understanding and peace
Through New Generations Service, we work with young people to help them become the next generation of leaders, visionaries, and peacemakers
THE FOUR-WAY TEST, created by a Rotarian, underscores our commitment to integrity:
Of the things we think, say or do
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
“If you truly want to give back to your community – and to the world at large – you join Rotary. It has an arm that reaches across all barriers. To be a part of that is very powerful.” – Aruna Koushik, Rotary Club of Windsor- Roseland, Ontario, Canada
