What is Rotary?

You've certainly heard about it, but do you really know what is ROTARY? There are several chapters around your neighborhood.

Riverbend Rotary

Our commitment to making a difference extends beyond our local community to create lasting change on a global scale.

We are proud to be part of international efforts, such as END POLIO NOW, which showcases the power of collaboration and dedication in achieving shared goals.

However, our most significant impact

is felt right here in the Riverbend area, where our passion for service and community development is truly transformative.

Our club members work tirelessly to champion local causes, support community projects, and drive sustainable initiatives that enrich the lives of our neighbors.

From mentoring youth and promoting education to fostering environmental stewardship and addressing social challenges, Riverbend Rotary is a catalyst for positive change.

We invite you to join us in our mission to create a brighter future for our community and the world, one project at a time.

Rotary International's Unwavering Mission: Eradicating Polio and Empowering a Polio-Free World.

Rotary International has been at the forefront of the global fight against polio for over three decades, working tirelessly to eradicate this devastating disease.

Through strategic partnerships with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rotary has made remarkable strides in immunization efforts, reaching millions of children in even the most remote corners of the world.

Since launching the PolioPlus program in 1985, Rotary International and its partners have helped to reduce polio cases by 99.9%, saving countless lives and preventing lifelong disabilities.

The continued dedication and support of Rotary members worldwide are crucial in achieving a polio-free world, ensuring that future generations can live without the fear of this debilitating disease.

Join us in our unwavering commitment to end polio once and for all, and be part of a global movement that is truly transforming lives and making history.
