What is a Rotarian?
A Rotarian is a person who digs wells from which he/she she will never drink; Vaccinates children he/she will never meet; Restores eyesight for those he/she will never see; Builds housing he/she will never live in; Educates children he/she will never know; Plants trees he/she will never sit under; Makes crawlers into walkers halfway around the world; Knows real happiness that as Albert Einstein said, “Can only be found by helping others”.
What is expected of our members?
Attending weekly club meetings allows members to enjoy fellowship, enrich their professional and personal knowledge and meet other business leaders in their community. If members miss a meeting of their own club, they’re encouraged to expand their rotary horizons by attending a meeting of any other Rotary Club in the world.
By participating in local and international service projects club members can volunteer their time and talents where they’re most needed.
Finding and Keeping Members
To keep clubs strong every Rotarian must share the responsibility of bringing new people into Rotary. Even new members can bring a guest to club meetings or invite them to participate in a service project. Keeping members involved in Rotary is another re-sponsibility. Fostering strong fellowship and encouraging early participation in service projects are two of the best ways to sustain a club’s membership.
Club members are required to pay annual dues to their clubs, districts and Rotary Inter-national, as well as the subscription fee to the appropriate Rotary magazine
