Rotary clubs and Rotarians have a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communities and to serve the public interest. Community Service responds to the needs of the local community by encouraging and fostering the ideal of service to the personal, business and community life of every Rotarian. It provides Rotarians with the opportunity to exemplify the Rotary motto: Service Above Self.
