A Message from President Joseph

Joseph Gedeon, President 2016-17E Komo Mai, welcome to the Rotary Club of Waikiki!

With more than 75 years of serving our community, we are excited to embark on another year full of “Service Above Self” while enjoying the comradery of serving along side friends.

The Rotary Club of Waikiki was chartered on May 15, 1939 and as one of the oldest Rotary clubs in Hawaii, we pride ourselves in our history and our legacy of helping to creating a better world for the next generation.  Whether through our child literacy programs or our international service projects, we are a Rotary club dedicating to “Serving Humanity” both locally and abroad.

Our nickname is “The Friendly Club” and if you’ve ever had the chance to visit us, you’d know why.  We are a club of business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, philosophers, and the occasional comedian.  We invite you to join us every Wednesday at noon at the Pacific Beach Hotel in beautiful Waikiki. Come join us!

Rotary theme 2016-17

Service to humanity has been the cornerstone of Rotary since its earliest days, and has been its main purpose ever since… No other organization so effectively brings together committed, capable professionals in a wide variety of fields, and enables them to achieve ambitious goals. Through Rotary, we have the capacity, the network, and the knowledge to change the world: the only limits are the ones we place on ourselves.

John Germ, Rotary International President 2016-17
