Our About Club
The Rotary Club of Baldwinsville was born on October 31, 1972.
 
Since then we have served meals for senior citizens, provided dictionaries to third grade students, built a pavilion in Lysander Park, picked up litter along highways and park trails, raised thousands upon thousands of dollars to help the hungry and sick, assisted in national and international disaster relief efforts, shared cultures through a Youth Exchange program, provided dozens of college scholarships, fed elementary children when school's not in session and so much more!
 
Volunteering with our club will:
-Help you connect to the Baldwinsville community
-Build your resume
-Introduce you to a new network of friends
-Provide opportunities for hands-on projects that truly give back
-Help you learn about other cultures
-Make you one of 1.3 million Rotarians around the world
-Give you a chance to have fun while helping others!
 
The Baldwinsville Rotary Club meets Tuesday evenings at 7pm AND on Wednesdays at 12pm at the Red Mill Inn on Syracuse Street for lunch. Lunch meetings are $10 per person if you plan to eat or just $1 to attend. No need to call ahead, just let us know if you want lunch when you check in to the meeting! Our meetings tend to take on different formats, especially on Tuesday nights, but we typically cover some club business and feature a speaker. Speakers are often from other organizations in the area, can be an expert to teach us about an interesting topic, an author speaking about their latest book or even some of the youth that we work with sharing their Rotary experience. Be sure to check the meeting schedule on our homepage in case we have something special going on that means we've changed our time or location!
 
About Rotary & Our Values
Rotary is a community service organization that brings together professionals who use their unique skills as a team, organizing events and implementing programs that address the specific needs of our towns, countries and world. We contribute to one of the world's leading foundations to raise money for programs ranging from community signage to the eradication of disease.
 
Our 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.
 
Rotarians follow the motto "Service Above Self." 
 
The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. The test can be applied to almost any aspect of life.
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it BUILD GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

What will I have to do? We will ask you to be an active member and help you find an activity within the club that you will enjoy. It could be joining club leadership, it could be participating in an existing committee or it could be coming up with something new for the club to start. We have programs that work with youth, events that serve senior citizens, partnerships with the local chamber and everything in between! There are so many ways to get involved, we know you will be able to find something you find fun, interesting and rewarding.
You will also be asked to follow The Four Way Test (outlined above) in order to embody the principles of our organization. It's as easy as being kind, honest and doing the right thing.
You will need to be prepared to bring your professional and personal talents to the table. We strive to have a diverse club when it comes to interests, abilities and passions. This is your opportunity to apply your skills to helping others!

How often do I have to attend? There are no attendance rules in Rotary. We hope that you enjoy your time with fellow club members and have so much fun doing projects that you will make us a regular part of your week. There are two meetings every week, plus additional club and district events for you to choose from. From our experience, there a many benefits to attending regularly, including being tuned into new opportunities to serve and forming real friendships with fellow members.

How much does it cost? Our club's membership dues are $145 per year, due by mid-June each year. Payment plans are available if needed. Wednesday lunch meetings are $10 for the lunch (or just $1 to attend) and Tuesday meetings are also just $1 to attend. Some events will cost money, like district dinners and our club's annual Charter Night. You do not have to be wealthy to be a Rotarian - your time is what is most valuable!

Can my business join your club? We do offer corporate memberships where you can pay dues for one and have up to three employees acting as members. This is a unique way to join Rotary and our club is proud to offer it. We have several groups with active members as a result of this program. This is a great way to provide your employees with an opportunity to serve their community!

Where do I start? We often invite people to attend a meeting and chat with us about Rotary, but it can be intimidating to walk into a room full of strangers. Please reach out to us (contacts below) via email so we can make plans to bring you to the meeting or be sure to meet you when you arrive. Experiencing a meeting will let you hear about what our club is currently working on and give you an opportunity to speak directly with one or more members. We are a pretty fun group and enjoy having other Rotarians and prospective members joining us!

Who do I contact if I want to join? The best place to start is our membership committee, but any Rotarian can help you if you already know someone in our club. Here are some helpful email contacts to get you started with making plans to visit us!
