What is Rotary?

 

The Rotary Club of St. Petersburg turned 100 years old on January 2, 2020. The club was one of the first 200 clubs chartered by Rotary International (today there are over 35,000 clubs worldwide). It was founded by former St. Petersburg Times editor, William Straub and other community leaders. 

We’re an international SERVICE club with 1.2M members worldwide, not a social club. Being a social is a byproduct of what we do to help our community and those less fortunate throughout the world. 

If you are looking for ways to engage with business men and women committed to serving our community and our world we invite you to become one of 1.2 million Rotarians around the world by joining The Rotary Club of St. Petersburg, the largest and oldest service club in our community.

We invite you to visit us at our Friday meetings at noon at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club .  It would be our pleasure to have you as a guest. If you would like more information, contact us today!

Remembering Mary Moore

Mary Moore, passed away on August 22 in her home surrounded by her daughters. She loved playing the piano and organ with her job as choir director at Mt. Olivet Methodist Church in Manteo and later at Woodlawn Presbyterian Church in St. Petersburg. Since 2006, she played piano weekly for the St. Petersburg Rotary Club. Mary had an immense music library in her head and entertained the club with a wide variety of music.

A memorial service will be planned for a later date and will be announced with time for as many family and friends to attend as possible so we can celebrate Mary’s life.

Rotary Club of St. Petersburg Presents Paul Harris Fellow Awards

It's always exciting to present Paul Harris Fellow Awards (a prestigious honor for Rotary Foundation donors). Sherri Crouse (center) was inspired by the hard work and volunteer efforts of two of our newest members, Melanie Simon (left) and Jan Davidson (right), so she donated her Rotary Foundation points to make them both Paul Harris Fellows. Gifts to the Foundation come back to Rotary districts and clubs as matching grants to support a variety of community projects.

  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

5 Avenues of Service
