The Shared Benefits and Energies of Your Local Rotary Club...
Fayette Rotary Club is one of a number of volunteer organizations which seek to improve the quality of our lives and the lives of others. We seek ways which will support and cooperate in meeting the needs of Fayette and our nation, as well as a host of international programs. Rotary has made significant contributions in healthcare, education, international scholar exchange, food programs, youth programs and other challenges which are presented to us. We welcome those of our community who have common interests to inquire about our local club and the expectation of members.
The Opportunity to Serve
Rotarians provide service at the local and international levels that addresses health care needs, hunger and poverty, illiteracy, disaster relief, and environmental issues, to name just a few areas of Rotarian activity. Through participation in these projects, members experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community.
A founding principle of Rotary was to provide a forum for professional and business leaders. Today’s membership includes leaders in business, industry, the professions, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion who make critical decisions and influence policy. Rotary offers the opportunity to meet people of this high caliber and work with them in serving others.
Personal Growth and Development
Membership in Rotary ensures continuing personal and professional development. Rotarians have countless opportunities to further enhance their leadership skills, as well as gain experience in public speaking and communication, organization and planning, team building, fundraising, and teaching.
Fellowship was a primary reason Rotary was started in 1905, and it remains a major attraction. Today, with more than 31,000 Rotary clubs in some 165 countries, Rotarians have friends wherever they go. Rotary helps to build a sense of community as well as enduring individual friendships.
Rotary International is an association of local clubs in many countries. Membership is open to business and professional leaders from every ethnic group, political persuasion, cultural background, and religion. Rotarians value this cultural diversity and practice and promote tolerance.
Membership in Rotary makes one a better citizen. Weekly Rotary club programs keep members informed about what is taking place in the community, nation, and world. Rotary’s expansive network of clubs and programs provides extensive opportunities for service and cross-cultural inter-change.
