One person with passion can make a difference. Imagine what a team of passionate people can do. 


As we focus on Founder's Week, the words 'One person with passion can make a difference...' resonate deeply. Imagine the passion that ignited the hearts of Rotary's founders, leading them to envision a world united in service. Today, we, their torchbearers, are called upon to embody the same fervor.

In RCBS, our diverse strengths and fervor create an unstoppable force. We see it in the dedication of our members who tirelessly invest their time and talents in community projects like the annual hamper donations or the recent tree planting on the east coast. This is the spirit that defines us, the spirit that allows us to dream big and achieve the seemingly impossible.

But our journey doesn't end here. Let's amplify our impact by fostering an environment where passion flourishes. Together, we can make a lasting difference in our community and beyond. Every project is an opportunity to channel our collective energy into something extraordinary. Join us at our next meeting, volunteer for a project, or share your passionate ideas. Together, we can ignite the world with the power of service.

What's Happening

Previous Meeting

Shots of winners and attendees at last week's lunch meeting.

Last meeting, District 7030 took center stage in a thrilling battle of wits! PP Brian Robinson emerged victorious in a brain-busting Kahoot trivia challenge, leaving fellow Rotarians in the dust. His years of service at the district level must have given him an edge, so much so that acting Sergeant of Arms PP George Connolly deemed that such expertise deserved... a fine!
Acting Sarge PP George, relished his temporary authority, levying fines wherever he saw fit. The result? A club brimming with good humor and well-disciplined members! In the end, the afternoon was a beautiful blend of knowledge, fellowship, and pure fun. We closed the meeting with our collective thirst for knowledge quenched and our bonds of comradeship strengthened.
Attendance: 42.3%
