Welcome to the Rotary Club of North Port Central in Florida.
We belong to Rotary International’s more than 1.2 million members in over 32,000 clubs in 200 countries, who volunteer their time and talent to further the Rotary Motto of SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
Rotary’s commitment to SERVICE ABOVE SELF has been channeled through the four Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity.
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary Clubs.
Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations and inspire others in the process.
Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.
International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach worldwide and promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus, funding disaster relief via Shelter Box USA, and helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.
Throughout our history, we have contributed thousands of dollars each year to our community and international service projects. These funds are raised through fundraising events and the efforts and contributions of our members.
