The main objective of Rotary is service; the
Rotary motto is SERVICE ABOVE SELF — in the community, Nationwide, and
throughout the world.
Here in the Valley we have been involved in the restoration of Rotary Storyland and Playland, an inter-disciplinary room at Hinds Hospice and our on-going, Chocolate Run at Woodward Park. We have sponsored and participated in providing holiday meals for the residents at Masten Towers providing low income housing for the elderly. For over 15 years the club has purchase, assembled at delivered and Holiday Food baskets for Fresno families. More recently we have partnered with Cambridge High School to provides food baskets for the families whose children attend school there. We also support the ongoing Student of the Month and College Scholarship Awards to deserving students at Cambridge. For the 16th year in a row, we are proud to have put on the annual Prom for students at Rata High School.
While we contribute and participate in many national and international projects, it is the local projects where we often are the sole sponsor that we see and feel the immediate results.
We participate in the Dictionary Project, which distributes Dictionaries for all 3rd graders.
