About Rotary — Service Above Self

Rotary International is a volunteer organization of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotary club members belonging to 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

The Object of Rotaryis to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: Service, Ethics, Fellowship, and World Peace.

Rotary clubs are made up of volunteers who are involved in community service, emphasize high ethical standards, and work toward peace and understanding in the world. Our small club of around 60 members meets every Wednesday for breakfast at Greenwood Country Club. To keep us aware of what’s going on in our community and the world around us, each week we have a speaker on various topics of interest.

Because our motto is “Service Above Self,” we are continually involved in community projects supporting local needs, focusing on the youth of Greenwood. We also support Rotary International’s around the world, focusing on peace and conflict prevention/resolution, disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, economic and community development

Not only do we put our hearts and minds enthusiastically into all of these activities, but we have a lot of fun along the way. Our meetings are not only informative but also entertaining. Because we meet every week, we have an opportunity to share in each other’s lives and build lasting friendships.
