Principle of Rotary
Rotary fosters the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and encourages development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service (networking), high ethical standards in your profession (The Four-Way Test), and advancement of international goodwill and understanding through peace and education through a world fellowship. We have four avenues of service: Club Service, Community Service, Vocational Service, and World Service. We support worldwide efforts to promote literacy, health, and peace. This is done through programs such as PolioPLUS, the placement of new wells for clean drinking water in poverty-stricken areas, and various youth programs.
Our club meets each Monday (with exceptions for holidays and other events) at Enterprise Mill Event Center on Greene Street in downtown Augusta. The club meeting begins promptly at 12:15. Members may arrive as early as 11:50 to go through the lunch line and fellowship before the meeting is called to order.
