Rotary Club of Norristown - President (2017-2018)

Robin Parker



Hello.  Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Norristown. Our club has been in existence for 95 years serving the greater Norrristown community. The Rotary organization is made up of 34,000 clubs around the world and is open to men and women of all races, and creeds. Our motto is “Service above Self”. Rotary beliefs are based on peace, goodwill and ethical behavior. Our efforts focus on improving the following: Peace and Conflict Prevention / Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and Sanitation, Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy, and Economic Community Development. We have also committed to eradicate the world of Polio forever.
I hope you enjoy learning more about Rotary. We are a busy club in Norristown. There is a lot of information here but the absolute best way to learn, is to come out and observe for yourself on Thursdays at noon @ Westover Country Club. Visit a meeting and test drive Rotary, there’s no obligation. Come out and volunteer on a couple of local service projects.
It’s a chance to do your part to change the world for the better. And you will make many new friends for life at Rotary.


Sincerely,
Robin Parker
President, 2017-2018


Here's 6 Great Reasons 
Why YOU Should Join Rotary
  1. The Opportunity to Give Back and Make A Difference: Rotary is a place where you can actually make an impact on the future of our world.  Rotarians provide community service to both local and international communities. You can help someone in need and the most grateful thank you and smile is the greatest reward one can receive and it brings enormous satisfaction to one’s own life. It is richly rewarding.
  2. Friendship: We all share the need for friendship and fellowship.  It is one of two reasons why Rotary began in 1905. You will make the best lifetime friends ever at Rotary.
  3. Citizenship in the Community:  There exists a great need for help in the Greater Norristown Community.  Our club is committed to helping Norristown become a better town. "Our roots since 1921".
  4. Business Development: Rotary provides the opportunity to network and connect with other professions with common interests.  
  5. Personal Growth: Rotary provides growth and education in human relations and personal development and enriches and encourages high ethical standards. 
  6. Citizenship in the World:  Rotary is in over 200 countries. Every Rotarian is welcome – even encouraged – to attend any of the 34,000 clubs. This means instant friends in both one’s own community and in the world community.
