The Kempenfelt Rotary Club, chartered in 1999, is one of the best service clubs in Barrie and has now grown to over 60 members. The hard work and commitment of our members has helped the lives of many in our local community and around the world. Much of this success is attributed to the amazing leaders who have served before me and have set the high standard of Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self”.
The mission of Rotary International, a worldwide association of Rotary clubs with over 1.2 million members, is to provide service to others, to promote high ethical standards, and to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
This year Rotary International’s theme is “Rotary Service Humanity”.
Are you a leader in our local business community?
Do you want to give back to your community and make the world a better place?
Then why not join Rotary, the largest service organization in the world.
Rotarians always combine fun and fellowship in everything we do, and the satisfaction of helping others is the best reward of all.
2017-18 RI President Ian H.S. Riseley announces his presidential theme, Rotary: Making a Difference
Riseley, a member of the Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria, Australia, unveiled the 2017-18 presidential theme, Rotary: Making a Difference, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.
Environmental degradation and global climate change are serious threats to everyone, Riseley said. “They are having a disproportionate impact on those who are most vulnerable, those to whom Rotary has the greatest responsibility. Yet environmental issues rarely register on the Rotary agenda,” he said.
