Top Reasons To Become A Rotarian
  • Friendship: In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship.  It is one of two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.
  • Business Development: The second original reason for Rotary’s beginning is business development.  Everyone needs to network.  Rotary consists of a cross section of every business community.  Its members come from all walks of life.  Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.
  • Personal Growth and Development: Membership in Rotary continues one’s growth and education in human relations and personal development.
  • Leadership Development: Rotary is an organization of leaders and successful people.  Leadership: – learning how to motivate, influence and lead leaders.
  • Citizenship in the Community: Membership in Longview Greggton Rotary Club makes one a better community citizen.  The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community.
  • Continuing Education: Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep one informed about what is going on in the community, nation, and world.  Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers and a variety of timely topics.
  • Fun: Rotary is fun, a lot of fun.  Each meeting is fun.  The club projects are fun.  Social activities are fun.  Serving others is fun.
  • Citizenship in the World: Every Rotarian wears a pin that says “Rotary International.”  There are few places on the globe that do not have a Rotary club.  Every Rotarian is welcome – even encouraged – to attend any of the 33,000 clubs in over 200 nations and geographical regions.  This means instant friends in both one’s own community and in the world community.
  • The Development of Social Skills: Every week and at various events and functions, Rotary develops one’s personality, social skills and people skills.  Rotary is for people who like people.
  • The Development of Ethics: Rotarians practice the 4-Way Test that governs one’s ethical standards.  Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.
  • The Opportunity to Serve: Rotary is a service club.  Its product is serving.  Rotarians provide community service to both local and international communities.  This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else and to sense the self-fulfillment that comes in the process and return of that satisfaction to one’s own life.  It is richly rewarding.
 
We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.
 
Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We set up temporary clinics, blood donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.
 
Our members combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and polio. Prevention is important, which is why we also focus on health education and bringing people routine hearing, vision, and dental care.
 
How Rotary Makes Help Happen
 
We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases. Rotary members have hundreds of health projects underway around the world at any given time.

Our Impact on Disease

The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in your own backyard.
Rotary makes amazing things happen, like:
  • Providing clean water: Rotary has worked with partners to provide more than 80 percent of Ghana’s people with clean water to fight Guinea worm disease.
  • Reducing HIV infection: In Liberia, Rotary members are helping women get tested for HIV early in their pregnancies. They used prenatal care to reduce new HIV infections in children by 95 percent over two years.
  • Ending polio: Rotary members have played a key role in bringing the world to the brink of polio eradication. Their efforts have not only ended polio in 122 countries but also created a system for tackling myriad other health priorities, such as Ebola.
