Tell Rotary's Story

story thumbnail
The focus of October is on economic and community development. For more than 100 years, Rotary has united leaders who are committed to using their expertise to take action and improve their communities. Awareness of Rotary is high. But public understanding of who we are, what we do, and the value we bring to communities is concerningly low.

They’ve fed the hungry, they’ve helped beautify parks and playgrounds, they’ve assisted families with emergency needs and that’s just in the cities where they live. Around the world they’ve inoculated millions against Polio, they’ve built schools, they’ve installed water purifying facilities. Between September 26 and October 7 Rotarians in nearly 70 communities across Western Iowa and all of Nebraska are celebrating their contribution to the communities where they live, the help they’ve given to so many in other parts of the world and they’re reaching out to leaders of their cities, their businesses, their schools to ask what more can they do.
