For years, Rotary’s commitment to: Service Above Self, has been channeled through the Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. You are encouraged to choose one of the following Avenues of Service to work on:
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club. Includes membership, public relations, speakers, social events, i.e. the general operation of the club.
Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards. Currently our club supports the Lakewood Chamber in the presentation of the Work Ethic Award to students enrolled in the West Shore Career Tech Program and schedules members to speak about their vocational path at a weekly meeting.
Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community. A wide variety of projects and activities supported.
International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. Rotarians can support International Service by sponsoring a project in another country, seeking international project partners to support projects in their own communities, or by personally volunteering at an international project site.
