We are one of over 3400 grass roots Rotary clubs worldwide with over 1.2 million members. Rotarians deploy their time, their talents and their donations to "Do Good In The World" by placing "Service Above Self".
In addition to our support for international projects, here in Aiken we provide college scholarships, build houses for Habitat for Humanity, provide financial support to numerous community service organizations, volunteer in public schools, and perform many other service projects. We are also participants in Rotary International's most widely known program to eradicate Polio throughout the world. We work hard to answer the call of this year's Rotary International President Ron Burton to "Engage Rotary-Change Lives".
We meet most Monday's at Newberry Hall here in Aiken at 12:00 noon. If you would like to know more just ask one of our members. They are the men and women you will find bell ringing for the Salvation Army at Christmas time, distributing free dictionaries to 3rd graders, and picking up trash out by the new county building. Or go to www.Rotary.org for more info.
