Together we see a world where People unite and take action to Create lasting Change across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves” – Rotary Vision Statement
In all the things we do, we are a club with a bias for Action. We seek out opportunities to improve living conditions in local and international communities. We expect to enhance the lives of those we serve in some meaningful way.
Our motto is “Service Above Self”. We live by a set of principles regarding the things we think, say and do, we call it the four-way test:
- Is it the Truth?
- Is it Fair to all concerned?
- Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
- Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
At Rotary, we work to bring people together. We are not a political or religious organization.
We invite you to join our club if you are interested in advancing these ideals. Here, you will meet like-minded individuals who believe that actions speak louder than words and are dedicated to improving the lives of those in WNC and the world.
Being a Member is Great!
As a large and diverse organization, Rotary provides individuals with the power to help those in need. There are countless opportunities to make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy- make friends in your own community and throughout the world.
Giving Back to the Community
Through Rotary, service to local and overseas communities is well organized and rewarding. If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile and make a real difference.

Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from every business community and its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.
Personal Growth and Development
Membership of Rotary develops leadership, public speaking, social, business, personal and vocational skills as well as improving cultural awareness.
Clubs organize programs and weekly meetings to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers on a variety of current topics.
Every Rotarian is welcome – even encouraged – to attend any of the 29,000 clubs in 194 nations and geographical regions. This bond creates an instant friendship wherever you are in the world. Many a Rotarian in need of a local doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, or other expertise while traveling has found assistance through Rotary.
Becoming a Member is Easy
Every Rotary club has a different ‘personality’ and offers a different range of benefits so it’s well worth trying out a few of your local clubs and meeting their members to find the one that suits you best.
