Rotary is an international organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
Well, For Me what truly makes The Community whole and a shere life source for The Community are all the awesome service organizations within the Community. Whether it be The Rotary, Lions Club, Jaycees, Kiwanis, and the tons of other service organizations, these organizations really make Our Community something to be proud of.
Believe it or not there may be a few people out there in The Community. That may not be aware of these service organizations and all the good work they do and how members of the Community can get involved with them. So Membership Drives are created to let the public know what these organizations have to offer.
So that takes us up to Our next segment.
On Tuesday April 22, 2008 The Rotary Club of Woodridge was having their special Membership Luncheon and Membership Drive. These Particular Drives are held twice a year.
The Rotary Club of Woodridge is a Fantastic organization helping Our local Community and Our Whole Planet as well. Since 1989 The Woodridge Rotary has been providing a place for business professionals to meet and together help the Community and The world.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
The Woodridge Rotary puts on three mucho big fundraiser for The Community, which include Their Mini-Triathlon, Their Holiday Auction and Their Poinsettia Plant Sale.
This event was actually The Rotary Club of Woodridge's weekly meeting. This was a special weekly meeting, in which they put on their big membership drive. This was just a great time for guests and visitors to learn more about Rotary and possibly join The Woodridge Rotary.
At this event included a very special presentation from Mayor William F Murphy, which included a Mini State of The Village Address.
