Rotary Making A Difference

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Gloucester, Massachusetts, a group of business men and women with a simple goal, to make our community a better place.  Established in 1923, the Gloucester Rotary Club’s 60-plus members strive to embody our motto, “Service Above Self". This year’s Rotary International theme is, Rotary Making a Difference.
A cornerstone of our work, installation of a new community playground at Stage Fort Park, was created as our centennial project and continues to be on going. Our club raised the resources necessary to purchase and install the handicap accessible playground through annual events like our Pancake Breakfast, Comedy Show, Trivia Nights, Calendar Project, Re-Gift Auction and Night at the Races.  We also raise money within the club through fun, weekly fines. In addition to a major project, we have been able to award more than $30,000 for student scholarships, to help local organizations, and emergency causes that occur both in our own hometown and throughout the world.

Rotary is an international organization of business and professional persons with common goals and interests who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Because of Rotary International leadership and initiative, polio has virtually been eradicated around the globe. In addition, Rotary International has adopted six areas of focus: peace and conflict prevention/resolution, disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic educational, literacy, economic and community development. These are lofty goals but by chipping at them, one by one, with spirit, diligence, determination and perseverance, Rotary will succeed.
 And, we have fun! 
We meet each Tuesday at noon for lunch at Cruiseport Gloucester, 6 Rowe Square. We hold interesting weekly programs with interesting speakers and a chance to visit with and enjoy our fellow Rotarian friends. We have a Service Membership for those who have less time for lunch and more time to work on projects.  If you are a visiting Rotarian, please come and see us.  Enjoy one of our weekly meetings or help us with a project. If you are a prospective member, learn more about the membership recruiting process on this web site or by contacting any of our members.

We look forward to your visit!
