So you're getting into an elevator, wearing your Rotary pin like a good Rotarian and the person next to you asks you "What is Rotary?".  Remember the elevators here on the Cape are very short so the response has to be brief.  Here's a brief synapsis of Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Yarmouth.

Rotary is a worldwide community of business and professional men and women whose focus on health, hunger, clean water and literacy spans over 100 years.  Our motto of "Service Above Self" reflects our ideals of peace, understanding and goodwill for all.  With over 1.2 million members, over 30,000 clubs in over 200 counties, Rotarians are committed to making a difference in the lives of people around the world.

The Rotary Club of Yarmouth is a thriving service club dedicated to our community, its youth and its underserved populations.  Fellowship and fundraising projects are varied and dynamic.  Weekly breakfast meetings are lively with informative speakers and programs.  We are constantly looking for new members committed to their community and mankind.
