We value what we measure. We value direct community service enough to measure it :-)

Rotary EClub of Upstate NY welcomes you: This is our new simple free google website which we encourage you to copy. (old site)
We focus on doing acts of service. If you like driving to meetings and sitting around a table paying to eat a meal, then it might be best to join a traditional club with fixed weekly meetings. If you would rather focus on doing service with a flexible schedule, then please consider becoming either a member of our club or an eRotary Friend .  With either choice, we have much to share, teach, and offer which you can bring to other groups with which you participate. The future is going towards flexible electronic options, so it is best to learn and adapt before being left behind.

Be the Inspiration is 2018-19 Presidential theme of RI President Barry Rassin who asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other with statements like:
“I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”
“… if you want to build a better world, you have to awaken the souls of your Rotarians — to their own ability, and their own potential, and to the longing inside each and every one of us.”
“I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”

Vision Statement: “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.” -RI Board on June 2017

Motto: Service Above Self

Rotary International: What would it take to change the world? Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self. In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
