Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.
The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.
The Rotary Foundation’s Group Study Exchange program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for businesspeople and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries. For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country's culture and institutions, observe how their vocations are practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.
In their 81st year, the Sackville club is still going strong with over 35 members hailing from all corners of Sackville, the Tantramar area, and a fair few “come from awayers”. Their approach to this year’s Rotary International theme: Peace through Service is to ensure that they have a solid foundation “at home” to better support Sackville Rotary's projects both local and abroad. Join them Thursday mornings at 7:15 am at George's Roadhouse, 67 Lorne Street, Sackville, NB. Everyone welcome!
