The Virginia Rotary Club
Rotary develops character and brings out the best of the human spirit. It teaches people ethics, humanity, cultural awareness, people skills and the desire and ability to serve. Rotary creates a more positive environment for promoting world understanding and peace.
Rotary always benefits two people. The child who is sick, who is hungry, who is thirsty, who has no clothes, no shelter, no education, no future, no hope . . . that child is the beneficiary of Rotary’s outreach. That child is Rotary’s business.
But another benefit comes to the Rotarian, the one actually providing the service. The Rotarian grows and fulfils the real reason for his or her existence, which is to serve others. The Rotarian becomes an emotionally and spiritually healthier person, a better professional, a better parent, a better citizen, a better human being.
Yet there are millions of men and women around the world who are Rotarians at heart but who have never joined because of one simple reason – they haven’t been asked. We must ask them now!
