Rotary International

"Light Up Rotary is our theme for this year, but it is more than just a theme.  It is how we in Rotary see the world and our role in it.  We believe that no one should sit alone in the darkness.  Instead, we can come together, all 1.2 million of us, to Light Up Rotary.  This is our goal."

Gary C.K. Huang
RI 2014-15 President


The Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

*    FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

*    SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's
occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

*    THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal,
business, and community life;

*    FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Avenues of Service

Rotary's commitment to service is channeled through the avenues of service, which form the foundation of club activity.

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.

Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.

Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.

International Service encompasses actions to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

Youth Service
recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities.

Four Way Test

The test, of the things we think, say and do, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Rotary Mission

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace
through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.

Rotary and Diversity

Rotary International recognizes the value of diversity within individual clubs. Rotary encourages clubs to assess those in their communities who are eligible for membership, under existing membership guidelines, and to endeavor to include the appropriate range of individuals in their clubs. A club that reflects its community with regard to professional and business classification, gender, age, religion, and ethnicity is a club with the key to its future.

The Rotary Club of Alturas was chartered in 1928.  We are an energetic service organization dedicated to improving our community and the world.

On a local level we sponsor many youth activities, senior programs, promote literacy, send youth to leadership camps, and provide scholarships to high school seniors.  Annually we sponsor the high school Block M Basketball Tournament, a holiday tea social, a high school speech and music contest, a golf tournament, and much more. On an international level, we participate in the End Polio Now campaign, and provide support to other needy causes. 

While we keep busy with projects throughout the year, we also have fun working together and are grateful knowing that the work we do is important in making difference in the world.  

We look forward to hearing from you!
