Rotary is an international humanitarian service organization with $1.2 million members belonging to 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries. We are a diverse global network of business and professional leaders who strive to change lives and build goodwill and peace, both at home and abroad. Rotary was founded on the ideal of “Service Above Self”. As Rotarians, we focus on service projects that encompass: peace and conflict prevention and resolution; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and economic and community development.
The Tunkhannock Rotary Club has been serving our community since 1925. The men and women of the Club are proud to call themselves Rotarians. We are passionate about our projects and devote endless time on fostering the ideals of Rotary.
Our community projects include: Independence Day fireworks display; Harvest & Wine festival, roadside cleanup on Route 6, and Candy Cane Days. We provide substantial donations to several local charitable organizations including, but not limited to, the Tunkhannock Library, the Dietrich Theater, Child & Youth, Interfaith Friends, and Victims Resource Center.
Our educational projects include: sponsoring students through our foreign exchange program, awarding continuing education scholarships, distributing dictionaries to elementary students, and sponsoring student leadership clubs and youth leadership camps.
We also support Rotary International projects such as the eradication of polio worldwide, global grants, and vocational study exchanges. Additionally, we provide aid to both foreign and domestic countries suffering from natural disasters.
We, as Rotarians, look forward to continuing our service to this year’s theme “Engage Rotary, Change Lives”. We challenge you to get involved in Rotary because the life you change may be your own. We welcome you to attend any of our weekly meetings to enjoy the fellowship and to learn more about us and what we do.
