Perry Township Rotary

 
 
 

The Rotary Club of Perry Township is in its 40th year of service to the Perry community.


We are a group of approximately 30 men and women, of all ages and careers, committed to the quality of life for all people in Perry Township. We are always looking for like minded people to join us in “Service Above Self’.


SERVICE ABOVE SELF: The enduring motto of Rotary International. These three words clearly and concisely explain the goal of Rotary clubs and members around the world: place the needs of others above your own by serving in your community.


We meet for a one-hour luncheon meeting each and every Wednesday at 11:45 AM at Reunions Pub near the corner of Perry Drive & West Tuscarawas in Perry Township.


Weekly meetings include interesting and diverse programs of speakers that inform, educate and often entertain. The food, fun and fellowship make this a great midweek break.


We also gather with our families for social events, but our emphasis is on service to our community. To help provide this service, we have various fundraisers throughout the year. IE: Turkey Trot 5K Race, Basketball Preview, Annual Dinner and more. In turn, these fundraisers provide Scholarships for Perry and Central Catholic High School students, the Rotary Exchange Student program and much more. We also support International Rotary projects and program.


A Rotarian is more than just a member of a Rotary Club. A Rotarian is a person who lives out the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self”.


Rotarians are expected to attend one Rotary meeting a week. This is made easier since there are clubs that meet, in nearly every town and time of the day, in every state in the Nation and Internationally.


Rotarians participate in all of the activities of their own club, including service opportunities as well as fundraisers that help further the charity efforts of the club. If you are looking for a way to be of service in Perry Township and the world, please talk to a member of our club and/or come to a luncheon.


Rotary was founded in 1905 by Paul Harris, a Chicago businessman with a vision that people untied together could make a profound difference. Since then, Rotary International has grown to more than 1.2 million members in 159 countries.


Throughout communities, large and small, the service of Rotarians is continuing to make lasting changes and improvements in the quality of life for all people.
