Rotary is an organization of both active and retired businessmen and women throughout the world who come together to serve their community and enjoy great fun and fellowship. Rotarians are a diverse, energetic, successful and friendly group of leaders who provide their time, expertise and resources to help their local and world communities.
A Rotarian is an adult of good character and reputation who is a proprietor, partner, corporate/executive officer or manager of a recognized business or who is a member of a profession.
Rotary clubs represent a cross-section of occupations and professions. A vocational "classification" system of membership ensures that any one profession or occupation cannot dominate a Club.
The Rotary motto, “Service Above Self”, guides the actions of individual clubs as they plan to feed the hungry, fight disease, assist the handicapped and elderly, combat illiteracy and fund scholarships. Membership is by invitation and is open to all businesspersons, irrespective of color, creed or race. This is born out by the fact that there are currently some 1.2 million men and women belonging to over 29,500 Clubs in virtually every nation in the world!
Although membership is by invitation, it is impossible for existing Rotarians to know of every qualifying person who is interested in becoming a member of the worldwide fellowship of Rotary. Therefore, you are invited to contact us so that we can tell you all about the Meriden Rotary Club. We will invite you to attend a few of our meetings, projects and fellowship functions. At that stage, a mentor/sponsor will be assigned to you to assist you through the membership process. We look forward to hearing from you soon and to welcome you into the world of Rotary.
