Things every Rotarian should know: Rotary strives to achieve it's objective of "Service Above Self" through activities in five primary areas.  These are often referred to as the Five Avenues of Service:

  1. Club Service: to make the club strong to achieve its goals.
  2. Vocational Service: to promote the dignity and utility of one's vocation.
  3. Community Service: to improve the quality of life in our community.
  4. International Service: strive for understanding, goodwill & peace in the world.
  5. New Generations Service: nurture youth, provide skills for success.

Rotary Foundation: As a tribute to the first gift we are asking every Kutztown Rotarian to contribute $26.50 or more to Rotary International Foundation. Please make checks payable to "Kutztown Rotary" and give them to Jim Sher. He will put them together with the correct form giving proper credit to each Rotarian. Return to top.
