About Our Club

 
Rotary Connects the world
             
Rotary is built on connection. When Paul Harris came to Chicago as a young lawyer,
he formed Rotary for one compelling reason: to help him connect to others in a new city.
More than a century later, we have at our disposal countless ways to form friendships
and networks, most of which Paul Harris never dreamed. Yet Rotary’s ability to connect
us remains unique — and unrivaled.
 
Through its distinct mission and structure, Rotary Club of Marana provides a way to
connect to our communities, to network professionally, and to build strong and lasting
relationships. Our membership connects us to a global community through our countless
projects and programs, our leadership in polio eradication, and our work with and
through the United Nations. Our service connects us to people who share our values, who
want to act for a better world; it connects us to people we would never otherwise
meet, who are more like us than we could have imagined; and it connects us to people
who need our help, allowing us to change lives in communities around the world.
 
In 2019-2020, it will be our challenge to strengthen the many ways that Rotary Connects
the World, building the connections that allow talented, thoughtful, and generous people
to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service. If you are thinking about joining, do it. If you have questions about what we do or how we do it, just ask. I guarantee it will change your life. You will make lifelong connections all around the world. Rotary truly connects the world
