Greetings from the President
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dearborn. As Rotarians, we join with the 1.2 million other men and women Rotarians as a part of the world’s largest service organization. We also follow the FOUR-WAY TEST on the things we THINK, SAY, or DO: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? We are very pleased you are visiting our website, where you can get a glimpse of what Rotary is, and of what the Rotary Club of Dearborn does locally and internationally. Locally, the Rotary Club of Dearborn offers a number of scholarships, is involved on pro-literacy and feeding the needy projects, is involved on civic activities such as the Memorial Day Parade and the Dearborn Homecoming, and sponsors a number of other fellowship and community service activities. Internationally, the Rotary Club of Dearborn offers changing support to families of Nicaragua, recently built a computer learning classroom at an orphanage in Brazil, provided printing equipment to a school for the visually impaired in India, responded quickly after the devastating earthquakes in Haiti, and sponsored and hosted inbound and outbound high school foreign exchange students here and abroad. Our Club thrives on the diversity of ideas that members bring with their skills, their life experiences, their cultural backgrounds, and would be further enriched in adding the energy and the new ideas that you could bring. We welcome you to our Club and welcome your attendance at our Thursday meetings at Park Place at 11:30 AM, where we will gladly share more about our Club and how you can get involved with Rotary. With Warm Regard, Jim Thorpe President 2013-14
