  President's Message      
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Beverly, a group of civic-minded folks who have come together over a simple idea -- to make the world a better place, be it down the street or across the globe.

Every day, our 100-plus members seek to live up to the Rotary ideal of "Service above self." And we do it in many different ways.  We help give people hot meals in Beverly and 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 to the Red Cross and collect food for Beverly Bootstraps.We ring the bell for the Salvation Army and give out tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships for local high school seniors. Every February, we plunge into the frigid Atlantic to raise money to provide polio vaccinations for children an ocean away. Last year we raised enough to provide complete rounds of vaccinations for 1,000 children. 

We have fun, too. You'll see us throwing gala fundraisers with our community partners at the Cabot Theater, helping kids paint their own T-shirts at Beverly Arts Fest and scooping free ice cream for senior citizens at Beverly Homecoming.

Worldwide, Rotary is a network of 1.2 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.

If you're interested, the Beverly club meets for lunch almost every Thursday at 12:15 at the Danversport Yacht Club, where we share a meal and plenty of laughs, discuss our projects and listen to a wide variety of invited speakers. 

If you can't make lunch, feel free to introduce yourself at one of our many service projects. 

We look forward to meeting you.
