WHAT IS ROTARY?
Fun, Fellowship, and Friendship
RIBI President 2012 - 2013, John Minhinick, succinctly defines Rotary as follows -
'Rotary is a worldwide organisation of like-minded men and women from business and the professions who along with community leaders join together to support communities near and far in a rannge of on-going programmes and responses to emergencies. The community support is often life supporting, frequently life changing and sometimes life saving. Rotarians represent all races, religions and genders.'
|What do we do?... The motto of Rotary is 'Service Above Self, and it is in that spirit that we offer help to the local community. We organise events to raise money for worthwhile causes, both at home and abroad. We are now devising ways for members to offer more hands-on Service. Like all Clubs we belong because we enjoy doing what we do, both as Rotarians and as members of our Club in particular.|
|How the Club works....The Club meets once a week at lunchtime for about an hour including a meal, after which the business of the Club of the Club is transacted, or there is a talk by a visiting speaker. Important issues are discussed at the monthly Club Council prior to being recommended to the members.|
|How and why we raise money....Charity monies are raised by a wide range of regular activities including Street collections, raffles, social events, the Summer Fayre and Duck Race, a Golf day and one off events such as Prestige Car Rallies in Windsor Castle. Monies raised are used to donate to local, national, and international causes such as Age Concern (Windsor) and Shelterboxes.
