Welcome to our Rotary Club! 

Through the efforts of Rotary clubs worldwide, we are "this close" to eradicating polio

 
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in more than 34,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical regions worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
Vision

The Milwaukie Rotary Club strives to be the best Rotary Club in Oregon and is committed to fostering a fun, educational, and service oriented environment that promotes service to local and world-wide communities, friendships, and understanding.
 
Mission
 
  • Provide service to others
  • Promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders

It's always so nice to get an update from a program our club has supported! Here's the latest from Nick with Imagine Scholar:
 
Hi Rotarians,
 
I hope you are all well. As many of you know, I'm back in South Africa with Imagine Scholar. I will return to Oregon in late fall before starting the Rotary Peace Fellowship at the University of Queensland.
 
It has been an amazing year for our program - our students continue to break new ground. They have been accepted to the United World College in Armenia and Yale University programs in Singapore and the US, were invited to "The Daily Show" to meet Trevor Noah, received full scholarships to universities and much more.
 
We've also hosted two international student groups - one from Groton School and another from Chicago called the Peace Exchange. While here, the Peace Exchange filmed a short documentary. I wanted to pass along the link because of its relevance to the Peace Fellowship.

It does a wonderful job showcasing how the intersection of peace studies and experiential learning can change the lives of young people. Oftentimes the most can be learned from those most unfamiliar to you.  

I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch it and share it with your Rotary clubs (don't miss the credits - it's Florence from Imagine Scholar). For many of your clubs, I can't thank you enough for your support of our youth leaders. You are helping to shape a new future for South Africa.

Kind regards,
Nick

“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will really be happy are those who have sought and found how to serve" -Albert Schweitzer
 
The annual "Lake Road Clean-up" is a favorite service
project of the members and families of the Rotary Club of Milwaukie
 
 
 

 
THE OBJECT of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the idea of service
