Rotarians are people of action, resilience, and commitment to making a difference. As we continue to adapt to a changing environment where uncertainty, frustration, and even sadness may exist, Rotary offers us a sense of hope, optimism, and well-being.
The Rotary Club of Greenville is rooted in the tradition of professional business networking, serving our community, and enjoying one another’s fellowship. It is Rotary’s mission to do good in the world and our theme for this year is “Imagine Rotary”. As Rotarians we dare to imagine our community — and the wider world — transformed for the better through our own lives and service. We invite you to join us on that journey.
That journey involves a commitment to Rotary’s seven areas of focus:
- Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
- Disease Prevention and Treatment
- Water and Sanitation
- Maternal and Child Health
- Basic Education and Literacy
- Economic and Community Development
- Supporting the Environment
Our service in Greenville includes our support of the Greenville Literacy Association, the awarding of “Service Above Scholarships” to students who have a demonstrated commitment to volunteerism, periodic conferences focused on peace and conflict resolution, and annual recognition lunches for outstanding educators and law enforcement personnel. We have also adopted Alexander Elementary School, a local Title I school, and provide support to its teachers, students and administration. Our reach also extends beyond Greenville into the wider world, where we have undertaken clean water projects in Haiti and Honduras. All these efforts require not only our hands-on service but also funds, which we raise in part through Greenville’s premier holiday festival, Kringle Holiday Village, now entering its second year.
Along the way we have fun together, at fellowship outings, happy hours, and twice-monthly meetings, where entertaining speakers keep us informed about our community.
If you are interested in expanding your business network and serving the community, then Rotary might be the organization for you. Come check us out – the Rotary Club of Greenville has approximately 200 members and meets during lunch every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the Westin Poinsett Hotel located in downtown Greenville. Currently, our meetings are also offered in a hybrid format via Zoom.
Even better than coming to a meeting is learning about our Club (and Rotary International) through a twice-monthly program called Discover Rotary. It lasts approximately 45 minutes and is available both in person and via Zoom. You can register for Discover Rotary and find out more about joining our Club here: https://greenvillerotary.org/join/
We look forward to seeing you soon!
