WELCOME TO THE ROTARY OF REDLANDS

For more than 100 years the Rotary Club of Redlands has opened opportunities for service in the Redlands community. In addition to great fellowship and networking possibilities, Rotary provides service where it is truly needed.

Projects in Redlands include:

Literacy Projects in the Redlands Unified School District

Breakfast and a Book –

Rotarians read to young elementary students, feed them breakfast and send them home with a new book.

Dictionary Program –

Each year the Rotary Club of Redlands presents a dictionary to all third-grade students in the Redlands Unified School District.

Personal Rotary Youth Development Experience –

PRYDE is a program which encourages 7th graders in our area to develop and utilize leadership skills. Selected students participate at no charge to them.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.

RYLA is a program which provides leadership training to nearly 200 high school juniors each year. Each participant is selected because they have demonstrated potential leadership skills and a willingness to strengthen those skills. Their participation is fully funded by the Rotary Club of Redlands.

High School Scholarships –

Each year the Rotary Club of Redlands provides approximately $40,000 in scholarship assistance to outstanding graduating seniors from Redlands High Schools.

And, just as important, members of the Rotary Club of Redlands are part of the 1.2 million Rotarians in 35,000 clubs throughout the World. Together, through the Rotary International Foundation, they give more than $90,000,000 a year to provide clean water to communities who need it, support education at the college undergraduate and graduate level, provide assistance to poor local communities, provide lifesaving medical assistance to needy mothers and children throughout the world, and promote peace. A another very important part of this annual program is Rotary’s commitment to eliminate Polio from the face of the earth. Recently it was disclosed that this has been accomplished in all but two countries.

Why not visit our meeting sometime. You might find that Rotary can enlighten and add new meaning to your life. Join us as we start our next 100 years of SERVICE ABOVE SELF!

THE FOUR-WAY TEST

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings: Of the things we think, say or do

1. Is it TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

  • COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

    Sometimes, the availability of financial support makes the difference between a student attending college or not.
