    Welcome to the Somerville Rotary Club website. 
 
Rotary is a service organization and is about "Service Above Self". It is an organization that operates on the local, regional and international level. Rotarians serve in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. In addition to service work, Rotary promotes high ethical standards in all aspects of our lives and works to build goodwill and peace in the world. Our Rotary International motto this year is "Engage Rotary, Change Lives". Our club is one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide with over 1.2 million members. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.
 
Somerville Rotary is a small but active club. Through our service projects we "engage Rotary" and in the process "change lives". Locally we support the Regional Science Fair at Somerville High School, give scholarships to Somerville students, support the work of many of our non-profit agencies, ring the bell for the Salvation Army during the holidays, and read monthly to elementary school students. Rotary members volunteer in communities locally and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, eradicate polio, and many more projects to make this world a better place for everyone. The Somerville club has participated in joint projects with another Rotary club to provide a vision testing machine to a community in Columbia and has sponsored the purchase of a walk-in freezer for a Columbian orphanage that houses 40 children.
 
One of the focuses of Rotary International is the eradication of polio in the world. This project began in the Phillipines in 1979 and since then more than 2 billion children in 122 countries have been vaccinated against the disease. The world is now 99% polio free with reports of the illness in only 3 countries. The Somerville Rotary Club has supported the Polio Plunge for the last two years, sponsoring Polar Plungers and raising money for the international campaign.
 
Rotary is also about fellowship: meeting and working together with other professionals from the community. The Somerville Rotary Club meets weekly on Tuesdays at 12:15 at the Holiday Inn, 30 Washington Street in Somerville near Sullivan Station. We would love to have you join us - come to the Holiday Inn on the 2nd through 4th Tuesday of the month (the 1st is reading day). If you have any questions or would like more information, please use the link provided.  
 
 
Thank you,
