On behalf of all of the members of the Rotary Club of Cleveland,
 it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website and invite you to take a moment and
find out what Rotary means to us and what it could mean to you and how
YOUR life can be changed.
 
Rotary is the thousands of lives that are touched each year, locally and internationally, by our projects and activities… it is immunizing the children of the world so they will never contract the dreaded poliomyelitis disease…it is providing safe drinking water and sanitation so that food can grow and children may learn…it is about providing dignity in support of those who are victims of abuse…or simply providing a child with a book to call their own in the fight to combat illiteracy…it is feeding the hungry or providing healthy, green space for children to play or to be a child again.  It is taking the power of one and adding Rotary to it and the opportunities for “doing good in the world” become limitless.
 
The Rotary Club of Cleveland is the 18th club out of 34,000 world-wide in 200 countries and geographic regions consisting of 1.2 million business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, promote high ethical standards, and help build good will and peace in the world.   What other organization gives you immediate access to a network of this significance? 
 
Rotary is FRIENDSHIP, GIVING BACK, NETWORKING, FUN, PROFESSIONAL and LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, BUSINESS ETHICS, COMMUNITY, TEAM BUILDING, FUNDRAISING, HARD WORK, ENHANCED ORGANIZATIONAL, PRESENTATION and PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS,   FELLOWSHIPS and CONTINUING EDUCATION through weekly programs featuring speakers of the highest caliber, designed to enlighten, motivate and inform whereby we go back to our businesses or our lives renewed and refreshed.  Simply, Rotary is SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
 
And in this ever increasingly complex world, Rotary and what it stands for, actually becomes more relevant each and every day.  Locally and internationally the need is ever increasing and our humanitarian projects must continue to be relevant all the while allowing for new programs for support and participation.  We are “just this close” to eradicating the dreaded poliomyelitis from the face of the earth - the single greatest humanitarian undertaking in the world. 
 
Rotarians are humanitarians by nature and the busiest of people with little time to waste and much to give back.   There is no better place for people like that then at a Rotary Club and this one, in my estimation, is one of the best there is.
 
We have many proud traditions to maintain and be our respectful of, but it is important to always create new ones to remain relevant and viable.    You can be part of our new traditions so please take the time to visit one of our luncheon meetings…get to know our members…touch one of our service projects.  I guarantee “you won’t go away hungry.”  Everyone has an important contribution to make…a special gift to share and this club will always provide a place of support for each other – our Family of Rotary.  That will always be a special character of this club that sets us apart from all the rest. 
 
For more information, please contact our Executive Secretary Sharon Lerch via email at clevrotary@aol.com or call the Rotary office at 216-556-8637. 
 
As we embarked upon this new Rotary year, I am more honored to be President of our club in 2015-2016 then most will ever realize.  Not many people are able to conclude their careers “doing what they love” and I thank you for this opportunity and for believing in me.
 
Most sincerely and Rotarily,
 
Beverly
