RY 2017-2018 LOGO




RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”



MILO SHOES SYMBOLIC TURN-OVER












"Service in the Rotarian sense is a mental process. It is an attitude of mind which relates persons and things with action. Thoughtfulness of others is in reality the basis of Rotary service.” - Frank L. Mulholland, 1914-15 Rotary president, in The Rotarian , September 1927 

Nov. 22, 2017. Thank you everyone for a busy Wednesday of Rotary Making A Difference. From MILO shoes distribution to three elementary schools in Roxas City (Tanke, Lawaan and Loctugan) Elem Schools to Rotary Center for the regular meeting.

GK BAYANIHAN DAY

by: Jessica Veronique O. Yu, GD Dinginan Capiz

Rotary International District 3850 and Rotary Club of Roxas does it again!
True to their commitment to make a difference in the lives of the community whom they met a few months ago, this second bayanihan day was totally unexpected.
We witnessed the heroism of the members of this very noble organization as they have individually or collectively continued to strengthen their ties to the families they met back then.

They have opened doors of opportunities for a better life. Some lives will never be the same because of good people like them.
The poorest will no longer be poor when we start to journey with them. It is not just the talent and treasures that matter. It's the POWER of PRESENCE.
Today, Rotary, Robinsons Bank, Alibata Association and Brgy. II Youth return to the community to inspire hope,
love, and the culture of caring.
GK Bayanihan Day Rotary volunteers has also engaged their family and friends into doing good.

Madamo gid nga salamat.
For God and Country!
