WELCOME!

Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of SE USA and Caribbean!

Our club was chartered in January 2005, as the 14th of the Original Rotary E-Clubs. We are proud of our diverse membership. Our membership ranges from brand new members that are new to Rotary to longtime Rotarians including five Past District Governors and four past eClub Presidents.

Whether we have been Rotarians for more than forty years, or just a few months, we are all bonded together by "Service Above Self" .

We have members residing in five different states in the United States and three other countries. In addition to the base of our members that reside in Rotary District 6950  (Gulf Coast of Florida, USA), we also have members living in other Rotary Districts of Florida, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Alabama. Our international members reside in The Ivory Coast, Cameroon, and Germany. Watch us grow to enhance the GOOD Work we do for our respective local communities and throughout the world. Would you like to join us?

If you think an E-Club is right for you, if you have service to others in your heart, we would love for you to consider joining us as a member of the Rotary eClub of District 6950 The Rotary E-Club of SE USA and Caribbean! 

OUR ROTARY E-CLUB

Our Rotary E-Club, like other Rotary clubs, meets weekly, carries out service projects, supports The Rotary Foundation, and socializes with each other.

So what’s different about us? You join our meeting online when it’s convenient for you, day or night, any day of the week - 24/7.

We also conduct ZOOM Meetings every First Tuesday of the month. Here, we have speakers, talk about projects and socialize.

WHO CAN JOIN OUR ROTARY E-CLUB?

As with other E-clubs, we are based in a specific Rotary District but our members can be from anywhere in the world. Our Club Community works locally (each member doing projects within their respective Rotary District) and globally.

Our E-club could be right for you if you:

  • Have a busy schedule and need a flexible meeting time
  • Live in different places throughout the year
  • Travel frequently
  • Have limited mobility
 
 
Our Projects are based on two of Rotary's Areas of Focus: "Basic Education and Literacy" and "The Environment".

FAQs  What is the purpose of a Rotary e-club? - The purpose of a Rotary e-club is to extend Rotary to business, professional and community leaders in any Rotary District who are unable to meet traditional attendance requirements. Inability to attend a traditional Rotary club could be the result of demanding business or professional commitments, extensive travel, confinement due to ill health or disability, or residence beyond reasonable distance from an existing Rotary club. 

A Polio Plus Note

 

 

This year, each Rotarian is encouraged to make a personal donation (of a size dictated by their financial situation) to the PolioPlus Fund by World Polio Day. And for Club leaders to make sure each donation is recognized as Paul Harris or Major Donor credit. (Terry Ziegler, Texas, PP Rotary)

 

  There is no cure for polio. Once you get it, you will be affected for the remainder of your life.  Polio survivors celebrate this day because of the vaccine—we know that those who receive it will never have to endure what we did. It’s a day to remind people about what polio was, and what it can be without the vaccine.

An estimated 500 million people worldwide became infected. Many cities closed theaters and cinemas, and placed restrictions on public gatherings. Rotary clubs adjusted their activities while also helping the sick.

This is how Rotary responded to the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and came in three waves, lasting more than a year.

Rotary and the United Nations have a shared history of working toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues around the world.

During World War II, Rotary informed and educated members about the formation of the United Nations and the importance of planning for peace. Materials such as the booklet “From Here On!” and articles in The Rotarian helped members understand the UN before it was formally established and follow its work after its charter. 

Many countries were fighting the war when the term “United Nations” was first used officially in the 1942 “Declaration by United Nations.” The 26 nations that signed it pledged to uphold the ideals expressed by the United States and the United Kingdom the previous year of the common principles “on which they based their hopes for a better future for the world.”
