Aloha! Welcome to the Rotary Club of Waikiki!
Rotary is an International Service Club. Founded in 1905, Rotary now has more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries around the world. Rotary clubs are made up of 1.2 million community and professional leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve their local communities and the world.
Rotary’s vision statement is:
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Rotary's focus is in promoting world peace and providing service to all people in need in our community and throughout the world. Rotary raises hundreds of millions of dollars annually to further these goals.
As a group, we live our values: building lifelong relationships, honoring our commitments, connecting diverse perspectives, and applying leadership expertise to solve social issues.
In supporting our motto “Service above Self,” we serve our community, in our nation, and people from other countries of the world. Recent projects include: distributing thousands of dictionaries to third-grade students, collecting school supplies for children, awarding scholarships, painting community shelters, giving books to children, and serving lunch to thousands at the annual Salvation Army Thanksgiving Day event.
Thank you so much for visiting this site today! We are excited about sharing more about Rotary with you. Please join us at one of our meetings. We meet at the Prince Waikiki Hotel located at 100 Holomoana St, Honolulu, HI 96815, every Wednesday at Noon. A delicious buffet lunch is served while we enjoy our fellowship and welcome our guests along with outstanding speakers.
In addition to weekly meetings we invite you to participate with us during our projects and social events. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Dr. Carol Riley
