Liz: What’s unique about the Portland New Generations Rotary Club?

Posted on Wednesday, May 2, 2012

This club is very unique. There are 1.2 million Rotarians all over the world, and the average age of our general Rotarian is probably in the 60s or 70s. Our club is very young. You’ll notice that as you see different members, as you come to meetings. You’ll feel the energy. We are a young professional club, although all are welcome, so we do make a point to make sure that everyone knows that anyone is welcome to be a part of the club with the idea that they’re young in spirit. We are very proud to invite people of all ages to the club, but you’ll hear a lot more energy around hands-on projects, as well as things happening in the international community.

Our members really want to travel. They want to see what’s happening in the world, and they want to make a difference in their own community. So you’ll see a lot of that energy throughout the meeting as well as throughout the club’s history.
