WE ARE ROTARY
Rotary brings together people like you - from all walks of life - who want to use their expertise for good. People whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. At Rotary, we connect for good - and form lifelong friendships in the process. Together, we empower youth, improve health, promote peace, and advance our communities in all corners of the globe. With 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs worldwide, our global community's impact has never been greater - and it continues to grow.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our club is committed to making a difference locally. Our local club mission has an emphasis on enhancing education in our community. Every year we fund a number of projects developed by teachers in our local schools that will expand a broad range of learning opportunities. Other entities we support include Waupaca Food Pantry, Waupaca Parks/Rotary Riverview Park, Waupaca Public Library, Foundations for Living, among others.
