The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians foster and encourage the ideal of “service above self” through the betterment of business and professional ethics, promote international understanding and goodwill, and provide humanitarian service.
Rotary International has a decentralized structure, with local clubs that are autonomous and community-based. Each service club works to improve the quality of life locally and around the world.
Rotary members have the collective expertise and skills to implement dynamic and sustainable programs in the areas of hunger, poverty, and illiteracy, with particular emphasis on children, the aging, and the disabled.
The Rotary Club of Cambridge (Preston-Hespeler) partners with Cambridge Memorial Hospital and Kidsability to support local health care, particularly for disabled children. Internationally we support education and health care in disadvantaged communities, in recent years for rural Maasai in Tanzania and rural poor in Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
If you have a passion for helping in the community, if you have skills to contribute, and if you want to join a group of your peers dedicated to helping those less fortunate, we welcome you! Check out our Club Website to see what we’re doing now, or email our membership chair to inquire about joining.
