The Durham Sunrise Rotary, known in this area as "The Little Club that Can and Does", includes a diverse cross-section of Durhamites from a range of professional backgrounds. The club is nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of all Rotary clubs is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities, international exchanges, and professional development opportunities. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
The Durham Sunrise Rotary Club meets most Wednesdays at 7 a.m., but interested parties should check the "Calendar" page on its website for a detailed schedule of upcoming meetings.
