Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million
business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known
as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in
all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
There are over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and 26 clubs in Hampton Roads. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians are united in a unique global campaign to eradicate polio.
We are always looking for new members. Please call the Membership Director, Bob Edwards at 898-1412 or the club President, Ed Jackson at 865-8804.
The Yorktown Rotary Club meets 6:30 PM Wednesdays at the Riverwalk Restaurant on the Yorktown waterfront (323 Water St, Yorktown, Virginia). At most meetings a speaker provides an interesting program. Meetings are about 1 hour.
