When does your club meet?

 

We meet from 7:00 - 8:00 AM on Wednesday mornings at Hyatt Place 215 W Day Road, Mishawaka IN. During our one hour time together we have a short business meeting to catch us up on what is going on in our club and with each other. Time is allocated to give members and visitors a chance to connect with each other over a great hot breakfast. Then we have the opportunity to hear informative speakers before we head out to work or whatever our day may bring. It is a great way to start the day!

 

What is Rotary anyways?

Our morning club is part of a larger organization, Rotary International. Rotary is a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace. About 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 2000 countries and geographical areas conduct projects to address today's challenges - including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water and environmental concerns - while encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations.

Founded in Chicago in 1905 as the world's first volunteer service organization, Rotary quickly expanded around the globe. Today, club members meet weekly to plan service projects, discuss community and international issues, and enjoy fellowship. Clubs are nonpolitical and open to every race, culture, and creed. PolioPlus is Rotary's flagship program. By the time polio is eradicated, Rotary club members will have contributed US$850 million and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than two billion children in 122 countries. Rotary is a spearheading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  As the world's largest private provider of international scholarships, The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International helps more than 1,000 students annually to study abroad and serve as cultural ambassadors. Rotary also partners with seven prestigious universities around the world, providing opportunities to earn a master's degree in peace and conflict resolution.
