Rotary

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Areas of Focus

The causes we target to maximize our impact are called our areas of focus.  our most successful and sustainable projects and activities fall within these areas.  Through global grants and other resources, we help clubs focus their service efforts in the following areas:

  • Promoting peace
  • Fighting disease
  • Providing clean water
  • Saving mothers and children
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies
Projects that focus on these causes are eligible for global grant funding from The Rotary Foundation.

 

The Rotary Club of Aurora, IL


The Rotary Club of Aurora, chartered on March 13, 1923, has operated continuously since that time.  During those years our club members, leading citizens from our community, have given and continue to give expression to our mottoes: “Service Above Self”
The world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed in 1905.

During the year, the club has a few fundraisers to support the club’s giving to the local and international communities.  They include a Dinner Auction event, Festival Of Lights and other fellowship events.

Regular meetings are held every Monday throughout the year (excluding national holidays.) Unless a special program is scheduled elsewhere, the meetings take place at Two Brothers Roundhouse, 205 No. Broadway, Aurora IL.  Members begin to gather for fellowship at 11:45am, with lunch beginning at noon and program ending at 1:00pm


Following the luncheon, an informal meeting is conducted with general announcements and introductions of visiting Rotarians and guests. Then, the Sergeant-At-Arms provides levity with humorous stories from the general membership, and assesses fines that help defray club expenses.

 

Members can access information on the club and e-mail other club members, etc. Rotary International’s ROTARIAN magazine, reporting Rotary’s worldwide activities, is sent to all members.  Member dues and meal expenses are billed quarterly.


Rotarian birthdays are celebrated at the first meeting of each month.  Members are asked to contribute $1.00 to the Club Foundation for each year they are celebrating.
