A Community Service Club
The Rotary Club of Freedom is a group of local community leaders, business owners, and professionals who meet weekly for fellowship. We are a part of Rotary International, a world wide service organization whose mission is to provide humanitarian service and build goodwill and peace.
For years, Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process. Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community. International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries. Youth Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.
