What is Pembroke Rotary?
Pembroke Rotary Club is part of a world-wild organisation made up of 1.2 million Rotarians in 34,000 clubs in 200 countries. We make an impact through individual Rotarians working with their Clubs to solve challenges.
Rotary is one of the world’s largest charitable organisations. Its accumulated resources are used to support major international programmes. Did you know that Rotary has contributed over a billion dollars to the ‘End Polio Now’campaign which is eradicating the scourge of polio from this planet? The symbol for the End Polio Now campaign is the purple crocus. To mark our Club’s on- going contribution to the campaign each year we plant purple crocus bulbs around our community.
Every Rotary club is an autonomous, self-run group and all our members share a commitment to our local community. Our efforts are further supported by Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation which funds the work of our members and partners around the world (such as the End Polio Now campaign).
All Rotarians respect the Objects of Rotary which encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and to encourage and foster: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarians’s personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
