So what is Rotary, anyway? That’s the question We hear most from people who have seen our logo and hear that We are Rotarians.

We’re a local civic organization doing the things you’d expect: funding scholarships, supporting other non-profits like the Salvation Army's "Ring the Bell" Annual campaign, or feeding the poor or funding programs that assist disadvantaged youth etc.

But we’re not just local.

Rotarians help build sustainable systems to deliver clean drinking water in India. And Rotarians don’t do this by just writing a check. Thousands of us travel to the poorest corners of the earth and make a difference with our own two hands. You see, local Rotarians are part of a world network of like-minded people whose achievements stem from a basic, four part code of behavior. Of everything we say or do, we ask:

  • Is it the truth? 
  • Is it fair to all concerned?
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  • Is it beneficial to all concerned?

The 20th century saw the spread of freedom across the globe, with dictatorships large and small collapsing in favor of democracy, open markets and civil rights. But as the political barriers to human dignity continue to fall, too many of the world’s people still have no sustainable way to provide themselves with food, shelter, medicine, clean water and other commodities. Rotarians work to change this in a permanent, sustainable way.

If you’re reading this page now, I invite you to join with us at our weekly meeting on Monday evenings at 6:00 pm at the Bluewater Grill in Wrightsville Beach. Rotarians carry their four way test within themselves when they go out the door every morning. We invite you to join us in radiating that standard around the world.

Come join our causes.
Yours In Rotary,
