WHAT'S ROTARY?

ROTARY is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. 

ROTARY is the world’s first service club. The first Rotary club was founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA on 23 February 1905.

ROTARY is some 1.2 million service-minded men and women belonging to more than 28,000 Rotary clubs in virtually every nation in the world.

ROTARY is The Rotary Foundation, which each year provides some US$90 million for international scholarships, cultural exchanges, and humanitarian projects large and small that improve the quality of life for millions of people. Rotary is widely regarded as the world’s largest private provider of international educational scholarships.

ROTARY is PolioPlus, Rotary’s commitment to work with national and international health organizations on the goal of polio eradication. More than one billion children in developing nations have been immunized against polio through PolioPlus grants.

ROTARIANS meet weekly for fellowship and interesting and informative programs dealing with topics of local and global importance. Membership reflects a wide cross-section of community representation. 

ROTARIANS plan and carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs that touch people’s lives in their local communities and our world community. 

ROTARY IS
SERVICE ABOVE SELF

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The Four-Way Test is an ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test says that:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Avenues of Service are the foundation of club activity. We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are:

  • Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. 
  • Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
  • International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
  • Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs.

Rotary Rises to the Occasion

(Article from Bev Jordan, Hills Shire Times, 09 Feb 2016, Picture: PHIL ROGERS)

WHEELCHAIR-BOUND TEEN GETS NEW DECK AND RAMP

SCORCHING heat, torrential rain and high winds conspired to make life difficult for Rotarians erecting a new deck and ramp for wheelchair bound teenager Scott Green in Baulkham Hills. The labour of love was carried out by a team from Castle Hill Rotary Club who had the help of Scott’s dad, policeman Phil Green. Sgt Green had to demolish the rotting back deck “years ago” and hadn’t been able to replace it. 

It was just the sort of project John Given from the Rotary Club of Sydney, was looking for. As the State co-ordinator of NSW Rotary’s Policeman of the Year awards he was looking for ways local Rotary clubs could help police officers in their own area.
