Rotary in a nutshell - the "in the lift" description

The Rotary network extends all over the world with headquarters in Chicago.  In the UK all clubs are under the umbrella of Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI), and are grouped into geographical districts. Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers is within district 1040 covering Yorkshire, Humberside and North Lincolnshire and having over 100 clubs and 3,000 members.

A shared mantra is the aim of "Service above Self". In practice this means individual clubs working to contribute to their local community often supporting local causes financially or 'in kind' with practical help, for example, acting as a trustee. 

Influence can be spread farther afield by working in co-operation with othe clubs in the same geographical district and indeed on an international scale by contributing towards worldwide projects (led by Rotary Foundation) - perhaps the most well known of these is the campaign to eradicate polio. Rotary have been a leader of this aim for many years.

Our major fund raising (and fun) events are Community Fair, Dragon Boat races and (recently) tombola/games at the CAMRA Real Ale Festival. Other events (focussing on youth and in liaison with other local Clubs) include Youth Speaks, Technology tournament and Young Chef. We are holding a special event in the spring of 2017 to raise funds to contribute towards the last push towards eradicating polio from the world. 


Our club meets weekly at the Downe Arms in an informal and welcoming atmosphere with good fun, fellowship and food

Introduction: Scarborough Cavaliers - What do they do? 


Frequently asked questions about Rotary - (accurate for this club but may not apply to other nearby clubs)

Are there induction 'rituals'?

Never have been never will be. A new member is formally introduced to the Club and says a few words if they wish. All new members are just asked to give a short talk about their work &/or hobby interests, at an agreed date.

Can ladies join?

Very welcome indeed at our Club, although there are still more men than ladies.

Do I have to pay to be member?

Yes. There is an annual subscription plus an optional donation to the Rotary Foundation (funding larger international projects). Plus we need to pay the Downe Arms for feeding us !!

Do you need to come every week?

No. Come when you can and contribute when you come.

How do I find out more?

Contact the Secretary, or another member and come along to a couple of meetings as a visitor; then give us the nod if you want to find out more.

How many members are there?

39
