  President's Message      

I was recently reading a book that included a parade in which a group of Rotarians were participating. The Rotarians were described as older men who had been in the parade for many, many years. While there is some truth to this image – the club was started by men in 1921 - and we do tend to stay members for many, many years, the Beverly Rotary Club is a group of just over100 people with diverse life stories. While we differ in appearance, age, gender, and experiences, we all believe that doing good in our community and the world is very important.
If this idea speaks to you, please join us at a meeting to try us out. The meeting schedule and location is here.  Or jump in by filling out our membership application. Click here.

When you join us, you will find our members serving people hot meals in Beverly and fundraising for clean water in Kenya. We help our neighbors find a warm, safe place to stay, be it for a night or for a lifetime. We donate blood, glean food at farms, run food drives, help raise money for worthy nonprofits and give out tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships for local high school seniors. We support the worldwide effort to eradicate polio with our Thanksgiving turkey raffle and spoof video. (Check them out on YouTube by searching North of 40 Turkey Raffle).

And there’s more! We help kids paint their own T-shirts at Beverly Arts Fest, provide free ice cream to our aging neighbors at Homecoming Senior Day, get out for beach clean ups, host international students through Rotary Youth Exchange, mentor high school students through Interact and work collaboratively with the Rotaract Club at Endicott College.

We plan and implement club fundraisers to support our work and have helped acquire the Bookmobile for the Library, a refrigerated van for Beverly Bootstraps, sponsored scoreboards at many of the city’s fields and we provided renovation funds for the Gazebo. Come see what our next big project will be!

None of this happens unless we connect and have fun. So occasionally, we just gather to enjoy each other. We have some funny, creative folks in the club, so we promise a laugh at most gatherings.

Worldwide, Rotary is a network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

We look forward to meeting you and having you part of this dynamic, hardworking Club.
