1.  Friendship: In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic needs of humans: the fellowship.  This is one of two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.

 2.  Professional contacts: This was the second reason for the emergence of Rotary.  Everyone needs a network of contacts.  Rotary consists of a cross section of professions from a community because Rotarians are involved in all commercial sectors and professionals, and help each other.

 3.  Personal Growth: Involvement with Rotary encourages personal growth in the area of human relations.

 4.  Leadership experience: Rotary is an organization of leaders and successful people.  Serving in Rotary positions is the greatest experience in leadership.  One learns how to motivate, influence and lead those who are already leaders.

 5.  Performance civic community: The connection with a Rotary club makes better citizens.  Typically, the Rotary Club brings together the most active citizens of a community.

 6.  Updated information: The weekly meetings of a club seeking to keep members updated on what's happening in the community, nation and world.  We discuss various topics presented by guest speakers.

 7.  Fun: Rotary is fun.  All weekly meetings, club projects and social activities and service are fun and interesting.  Additionally, service is fun.

Unseen in the U.S. since the 1960's, more than 350,000 people (mostly children) were victimized by the virus every year worldwide until Rotary started on its project to eradicate the disease from the face of the Earth. After more than 20 years of effort (and teamwork with the C.D.C., Unicef, and The World Health Organization), the disease is now endemic in only three countries (Pakistan, Afganistan & Nigeria). Through the tireless efforts of Rotarians and their partners, this year 2013 has seen fewer than 300 new cases world-wide. Through the generosity of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (which donated $455 Million to the eradication efforts) Rotary is closer than ever to achieving its goal of total eradication. The newest Gates grant is a challenge grant, which matches 2 for 1 every dollar Rotarians donate and raise, up to $35 Million per year for three years.  To learn more about the polio disease and Rotary's efforts towards eradication, Click here.

Rotary was founded in Chicago, IL in 1905 by lawyer Paul Harris and three business associates who joined together for fellowship and business at a time and in a city where business practices were sharp and trust was hard to come by. The members of the first club soon became better acquainted with one another and developed relationships more like those in small-town America, which led to success as a natural by-product of those relationships. Within a few short years, the concept expanded to dozens of cities and the focus of the membership also turned to service. Today, over 33,000 Rotary clubs may be found in over 200 countries and geographical areas with more than 1.2 Million members. The Rotary Club of Commack-Kings Park was chartered in 1968 and since then has undertaken countless projects to better our local community, our region, and the world at large.  To learn more about the history of Rotary International, click here
