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

  1. Is it the TRUTH?

  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?


  4. 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
