Who We Are
Our fellowship is infectious. Our community service indispensable.
Simply put, Rotary is SERVICE. An international organization of men and women— business and professional leaders— who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and the world. Brighton Rotary is one of over 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries (more than the United Nations) and geographical areas around the world. The Rotary motto, “Service Above Self”, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of our organization’s more that 1.2 million members. The unique combination of strong fellowship among all Rotarians and meaningful community and international service projects worldwide set Rotary apart.
Chartered in 1956, The Rotary Club of Brighton has a long, rich Club History. And of course, we will be celebrating our 60th Anniversary throughout 2016! You can access our Club Leadership, including Club Officers 0r Club Board members for any specific informational requests. And be sure to check out our complete Membership Directory. You’ll find we are a very active, very hands-on Club, taking on several service projects each year, including:
- Spring and Fall clean-up and ongoing upkeep work (like painting) at Buckland House
- Volunteering at Foodlink twice a year (to sort and repackage donated food)
- Volunteering at Camp Haccamo for children and teens with physical and mental disabilities
- Sponsoring an annual bike donations drive for Rochester Bikes
- Distributing approximately 275 dictionaries to French Road Elementary 3rd Graders each year
- Distributing Holiday Gift Bags to YWCA resident single mothers and their families, with food and toys as presents for the kids (sometimes these are the only presents these kids get each year
- Sponsoring an Interact Club at Brighton High School
- Sponsoring both an Inbound and Outbound exchange student each year
