Who is Rotary?

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Lowell

Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

Rotary membership provides the opportunity to: Become connected to your community. Work with others in addressing community needs. Interact with other professionals in your community. Assist with RI's international humanitarian service efforts. Establish contacts with an international network of professionals. Develop leadership skills. Involve family in promoting service efforts.

Our club's on going service projects include: 

     Roadside clean up three times a year

     Prepare sack dinners for children through Kids Food Basket four times a year

     Deliver food to seniors through Senior Food Commodities distributed by Flat River Outreach Ministries twelve times a year

     Prepare and serve food for neighbors through Lowell Open table six times a year

     Distribute food to neighbors in need through Mobile Food Pantry distributed by Flat River Outreach Ministries twice a year

Start with a mindset for success

Try a ‘theory of change’ exercise to ensure your project’s result is lasting

You may have heard the term "theory of change" but not really known what it is. You may have even dismissed it as academic jargon.

But the concept is an important part of The Rotary Foundation’s Programs of Scale grant process because a theory of change that is well thought out can serve as an indispensable guide to successfully reach a project’s long-term goal.

And since programs of scale are all about substantial, measurable results with big impact, a theory of change is essential to develop.

There are many ways to illustrate a theory of change. But perhaps the easiest is to think of a theory of change as an explanation of how a program will achieve its intended impact and in what circumstances.

Let’s break that down further

#Rotary President Jennifer Jones sat down for a conversation with UN Environment Program Executive Director Inger Andersen at @UNEP in Nairobi, Kenya. Both are attending #COP27 in Egypt to learn more about, and address, critical environmental issues.
