Thank you for visiting the Exeter Rotary Club's webpage.
The Exeter Rotary Club has been a non-profit member of our Exeter Area Community since 1959. Rotary is one of the largest international humanitarian service organizations in the world, with more than 1.2 million Rotary members worldwide. Rotary joins leaders from all continents, cultures and occupations. Rotarians exchange ideas, bringing their expertise and diverse perspectives to help solve some the world’s toughest problems, like the eradication of polio. Rotarians take action to bring lasting change in their communities around the world. The Exeter Rotary Club conducts many community projects and supports local non-profits who’s work benefits those that live and work in Exeter area.
The new President of Rotary International, K.R. “Ravi” Ravindran chose the theme “Be a Gift to the World” as a way to express his approach to moving through life, by paying it forward. The act of paying it forward recognizes that nobody makes it on their own. Any success in life is enjoyed because of the network and community that surrounds us.
The Exeter community is an incredibly special place. There are people here that want to continue to see this community thrive; in business, education, socially and artistically. When you have an idea that will make progress in Exeter, there is a group of people that are ready to get behind you and make it happen. The Exeter Rotary Club has been that for me and I believe we will fully demonstrate what it means to ‘Be a Gift to the World’ in 2015-2016.
The Exeter Rotary Club meets each Monday at the Exeter Inn. We are looking for established professionals wanting to make positive changes in the Exeter community and around the world. Meetings are open to the public; cost is $20.00. If you are interested in attending, or learning more about our Club please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Rotary,
2015-2016 Exeter Rotary Club President

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...
