Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change. We connect people:   Rotary unites more than a million people. 1.4 million members and 46,000 clubs. Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. We transform communities:    We take action locally and globally. 16 million volunteer hours each year. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions. We solve problems:   No challenge is too big for us. Nearly 3 billion children immunized against polio. For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease. Our causes: Promoting Peace - Fighting Disease - Providing Clean Water - Saving Mothers and Children - Supporting Education - Growing Local Economies - Protecting The Environment Join Leaders:   Club activities, social events, and volunteer projects offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections. And Rotarians can extend those networks by visiting other clubs around the globe.

Our friends at Brookline Rotary Club extended an invitation to us to travel with them on a Danube River Cruise in October 2022.
It looks like a wonderful cruise to enjoy with old and new Rotary friends.
