Since being chartered in 1977, the Canton Rotary Club of Michigan has helped start Canton Public Library, add a…More bus for shuttling seniors who need transportation and created Heritage Park's Clock Plaza.
In addition to the club's annual Pizza with Santa at the Roman Forum, members make Christmas baskets for senior citizens, donate backpacks to the Plymouth Canton Clothing bank, host international exchange students and award vocational scholarships to Canton-area high school students.
As part of Rotary International, the world's oldest service club, members adhere to the motto "Service Above Self." Rotarians aim to help at all levels, from individual clubs to global aid. International goals are eradicating polio and providing clean water resources to people everywhere.
The club also asks members to follow a four-way test in all things based on these questions:
Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Club meetings are at 12:05 each Monday at Carrabba's Italian Grill.
