As a new member you’ll have the opportunity to become more involved in your community and to provide aid to other parts of the world through the opportunities Rogue Gateway and Rotary International offer.
What you’ll get out of Rotary depends on what you put into it, so you are encouraged to jump in and get involved. Volunteer to serve on a committee that meets your interests, to be a greeter for weekly club meetings, or to join a service project team. These activities will help you get to know your fellow club members and better understand the work of Rotary. Red badges are given to all new members until they have completed the requirements for a blue badge.
As a Rotarian you are expected to attend weekly lunch meetings and participate in supporting the club through weekly raffles and fines. In the event that you are unable to attend a regular weekly meeting, there are a variety of ways you can make-up a meeting. Further, you are expected to participate in club service projects and fundraisers. You and the club will benefit greatly from your contributions.
Most importantly, as a member of Rotary you are expected to uphold the Four-Way Test and represent Rotary at your very best.
