Message from President Mark Alston-Follansbee
Would you like to help change the world? We would. Welcome to the Somerville Rotary Club website. We hope you will find these pages informative and we hope you will join us if you have any interest in Rotary and our local club.
We are a service club and the motto of Rotary is “Service Above Self”. We serve in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. In addition to our service work, Rotary promotes high ethical standards in all aspects of our lives and works to help build goodwill and peace in the world. Our Rotary International motto this year is Peace Through Service. Our club is one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide with over 1.2 million members. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.
Locally we support the Regional Science Fair at Somerville High School, give scholarships to Somerville students, support the work of many of our non-profit agencies, ring the bell for the Salvation Army during the holidays, and read monthly to elementary school students. Rotary members volunteer in communities locally and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, eradicate polio, and many more projects to make this world a better place for everyone.
The Somerville Rotary Club meets weekly on Tuesdays at 12:15 at the Mt. Vernon Restaurant, 14 Broadway near Sullivan Station and we would love to have you join us. If you have any questions or would like more information, please use the link provided.
