Welcome to the Rotary Club of Houma!
In this Rotary year we will be celebrating our 95 th Anniversary as the first of three Rotary Clubs founded in Houma. Every Rotarian in our club takes an active role in making every club endeavor meaningful and successful. Our membership is very diverse in their private and professional lives, but as Rotarians, we all unify as one driving force to enrich our community and to help better the lives of those who need our help.
Rotary goes well beyond our community. Rotary was founded 110 years ago by founder Paul Harris and a small group of businessmen in the Chicago area. Since then, Rotary has grown into an international humanitarian organization with 1.2 million members in 34, 000 clubs in over 200 countries. Rotary has led the way to eradicate Polio, feed the hungry, provide clean water, and to bring peace to the world.
You can learn more about the history and endeavors of Rotary by visiting the international website at www.rotary.org.
SERVICE ABOVE SELF is the motto of Rotary International and every Rotary Club in the world. Our Club offers membership with opportunities to serve the local community and international projects through various committees. Whether you are interested in the environment, youth services, music, technology marketing and public relations, helping the less fortunate, social events or world community service, we have a committee that fits your passion.
Joining Rotary is the first step you can take toward a larger life of helping others. I am of the belief that everyone holds something that they can offer to enhance our club. The question is, do you have the passion, desire and time to weave what you possess into a life of being a Rotarian. If you think Rotary may be for you, we would love to have you as a guest at one of our meetings. Please contact me or any of our 90 plus members for an invitation to join us for lunch.
Yours in Rotary Service
President, Rotary Club of Houma
