Rotary clubs worldwide marked the 111th anniversary of the first Rotary club meeting by holding an event, hosting a fundraiser, or lighting a notable building. Thanks to the more than 70 clubs that sent us photos of their events, some of which are shown above. We could not use them all, but clubs are also posting their photos on Facebook using #RI111.

  7. The new Rotary Club of Rochester Southeast (District 7120) had sort of a grand “trifecta” event. We celebrated our special Charter Night Dinner with at least 75 distinguished Rotarians, several District Governors on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 on “the day” of Rotary’s 111th Anniversary. AND… We had 23 Charter Members plus one (1) new member. See the “23” members on the “23rd” of February coincidence? District Governor Bill Gormont of the Rotary Club of Greece NY was the guest speaker program. People after the event said there was a terrific energy in the room. And an excitement the whole Rotary District 7120 felt. ~~ Dave “Bippy” Boyer, Chartering president and multiple Paul Harris Fellow.

  18. Dear Fellow Rotarians,
    Congratulations for a remarkable journey of 111 years of Rotary! Let’s join all Rotary Clubs worldwide to recognize the day, also known as Rotary’s “World Understanding and Peace Day.”
    As Rotarians we strive to build goodwill and peace, we are dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water and environmental concerns and we encourage high standards in all vocations. We provide humanitarian service at both local and international levels, from helping families in need to working towards a polio-free world.
    Let us be reminded of what our Founder said “whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves” and commemorate this special day by renewing our commitment to “Service above Self”.
    Yours in Rotary,
    Litsa Aresti
    DDG 2015-16

    this is the message from our DDG Litsa to Cyprus Rotarians

  19. The Rotary Club of Ryde and Water Aid

    In 1994 the Rotary Club of Ryde approached the owners of Waltzing Waters with a plan to build a wishing well and collect funds for Water Aid, a worldwide charity that provides clean water and toilets to communities in Africa and Asia.

    The most recent project involved a donation of £13,500 to a hospital in Kiomiboi, Tanzania. This hospital only had access to clean water through one tap and our donation will provide a constant supply of clean water, better toilets and help promote hygiene education.

    Additionally, the UK Government has pledged to double donations to Water Aid for the next three months effectively increasing our donation to £27,000 and providing funds for another project.

    The fundraising at Waltzing Waters has been so successful that in the 21 years we have raised in excess of £250,000 for numerous Water Aid projects in East Africa.

    Is it the truth? ( We decided to hold a contest opposing teams “would I lie to you” )
    Is it fair to all concerned? ( we had a very good adjudicator he would be very fair )
    Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
    ( We would be building on our friendships with old members with the younger members)
    Will it be beneficial to all concerned? ( The 2 teams and the audience would benefitted greatly. This would bring in fellowship which in turn would help us all work together on future projects, All for the betterment of society in general)
