The Shelby Rotary Club

The Shelby Rotary Club is a one of 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas within Rotary International, the world’s first service organization. Rotary International's members form a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and the world. The Shelby Club currently has 39 members and is always looking for more individuals interested in joining.

Rotary's motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization's more than 1.2 million members. Strong fellowship among Rotarians and meaningful community and international service projects characterize Rotary worldwide.

Rotary enjoys a rich and sometimes complex tradition and organizational structure, with many programs that can be confusing to new and even not-so-new members. This website offers a basic Rotary education — the fundamental knowledge that will make every member better informed about Rotary and proud to be a Rotarian.

Why join Shelby Rotary?

First, it’s fun! If you’d like to meet people who want you to be a member, then this club is for you. Have the opportunity for lunch once a week, listen to a good program, or work together on a project with folks you can feel at home while you live Rotary. Rotary offers opportunities that you do not want to miss.

As a large and diverse organization, Rotary provides individuals with the power to help those in need. There are countless opportunities to make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves. Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits including:

    •    Friendship - In an increasingly complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy - make friends in your own community and throughout the world.

    •    Giving back to the community - Through Rotary, service to local and overseas communities is well organized and rewarding. If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile and make a real difference.

    •    Fun and entertainment - Rotary is fun... a lot of fun. Every Rotary club and district arranges parties and activities that provide a welcome distraction to a hectic business life.

    •    Business development - Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from every business community and its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.

    •    Personal growth and development - Membership of Rotary develops leadership, public speaking, social, business, personal and vocational skills as well as improving cultural awareness.
Continued learning - Clubs organize programs and weekly meetings to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers on a variety of current topics.
