Rotary strives to achieve its objective of “Service Above Self” through activities in five primary areas. These are often referred to as the Five Avenues of Service.
One Avenue of Service is Club Service. This Avenue promotes the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. It involves the activities necessary to make the club function successfully and achieve its goals.
