40 Years and Still Making a Difference
The Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay is one of more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Our club consists of more than 45 professional men and women, mostly small business owners who have been meeting weekly for over 40 years to help serve the coastside community and support Rotary’s many international projects.
Rotary was founded in Chicago in 1905, and celebrated 100 years of service in 2005. Rotary’s motto is “Service above self”. The Rotary Foundation has awarded more than $2.1 billion in grants, which are administered at the local level by Rotary clubs.
Rotary clubs exist to improve communities through a range of humanitarian, intercultural and educational activities. We advance international understanding by partnering with clubs in other countries and encourage high ethical standards in all vocations. What do Rotary clubs do?
Rotary clubs address critical issues at home and abroad by providing health care and medical supplies, clean water, food, job training, youth development, and education to millions of people in need. Examples of Rotary’s focus include:
