Rotarians are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who are creating positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our diverse occupations, cultures, and experiences give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish remarkable feats. The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • The development of acquaintances as an opportunity for service; 
  • High ethical standards in business and professions; 
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business  and community life; 
  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional personal united in the ideal of service.
