Community Service is one of the Avenues of Service which encourages Rotarians to offer service to their communities.  Every Rotary Club and every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communities and to serve the public interest.

Service is the very core of Rotary's character. It promotes Rotary's appeal and visibility in the community, and why Rotary continues to thrive.  Rotarians recognize the importance of giving back to the community.  As Rotarians we have the reasonability to find ways to improve the quality of life for those within our communities and to serve the public interest. When we are effective we not only contribute to the greater good, but also promote Rotary's positive image.

This year we're looking to create a  synergistic relationship between different clubs at the district to create a bigger impact in the local and global community. The focus will also be to cross pollinate with International Services' Committee to be able to support programs with a bigger impact. 


What is Community Service?

  • Encouraging and fostering the ideal of service to the personal, business and community life of every Rotarian.
  • Opportunities for every Rotarian to exemplify “Service Above Self”.
  • A chance to respond to the needs of a local community.

 Community Service Projects:

  • Are relevant to the community
  • Serve as a learning experience for Rotarians
  • Identify a Rotary club’s role in its community
  • Determine how Rotarians can help with the resources at hand
