Rotary Te Puke, in the heart of the Bay since 1954.
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders (men & women) united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
In more than 210 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 33,000 Rotary clubs. Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence.
We also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development.
