Welcome to Rockport Rotary!
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians, who are members of more than 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 165 countries. Our own Rockport Rotary Club has more than 70 members.
New Membership Opportunities!
Rockport Rotary is now offering a new category of membership—the Service Membership—to accommodate those who cannot attend meetings during the day but have a passion for service.
A Service Member agrees to attend at least one meeting each month and to commit to 26 hours of service per year. We have added four new Service Members, so far!
The first meeting of each month will be held in the evening to accommodate those who cannot attend a luncheon meeting. Our next evening meeting will be at the Emerson Inn on June 4 at 5:30pm. There will be cocktails, a fruit and cheese display, and hot and cold hors d'oeuvres. You can meet our current members and find out more about Rotary and Rotary's mission. Please RSVP by emailing email@example.com

Rotary Youth Exchange
Rockport Rotary Club is proud to be able to provide exchange opportunities for Rockport High School students, as well as for visiting students from countries all over 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.
