“My favorite thing about Rotary is that it’s an efficient use of my time. All at once, I’m creating new friendships, making new business contacts, learning how my community works, and participating in the world.”
You’ll make valuable connections with community leaders who care about the issues facing your hometown and hometowns around the world. And you’ll have the chance to apply your personal experience and professional skills to solve these challenges and create positive change.
As a member, you’ll find opportunities to network and develop your professional skills. You can take the lead in developing projects, organizing events, and running your club. Through these activities, you’ll hone your project planning skills, improve your public speaking, and even learn new skills, like public relations, social media, and fundraising.
You’ll spend time with friends and make new ones every week! Make it a family affair. Members are encouraged to invite their spouse or partner, children, and parents to help with service projects and attend club events. Rotary offers opportunities for all ages, from service clubs for youth and young adults (Interact and Rotaract) to exchanges that give young and old alike the chance to explore new cultures.
Newberg Noon Rotary members make a difference in our community as well as the world. Rotarians volunteer with literacy, outdoor and social service projects such as SMART, park and trail development, annual Pancake Breakfast at the Old Fashioned Festival and Special Olympics.
Club members support worldwide projects. Members have been going to Guatemala with a dental mission for over a decade. The Guatemala trip has made a huge difference in the health of the villagers that are visited each year. People are learning about the importance of dental hygiene and this has resulted in the trips changing from extractions (over 1000 teeth pulled the first year of visits) to maintenance and cleanings as dental health has improved. This project includes volunteer dentists, but also non-dentist Rotarians who help with the many logistical activities needed. Members are invited to participate.
Rotary is one of the key organizations in the eradication of Polio worldwide. Rotarians participate in other international projects individually or through supporting activities. Newberg Noon Rotary is a Peace Builder Club and supports Rotary’s Peace Fellowship program and other Peace activities, including the placement of peace pole in Newberg’s Memorial Park and Francis Square. Rotary also supports youth exchange in cooperation with the Newberg Early Birds Rotary Club.
