RI Signature Project:
We are especially dedicated to ending polio in our lifetimes. Rotary members have persevered in this fight since 1979 and have now helped eradicate polio in all but three countries worldwide.
Rotary began fighting polio nearly 30 years ago, and although our work has reduced the number of cases of the disease by 99 percent worldwide, new outbreaks and dangerous conditions make the total eradication of polio a constant challenge.
When you give to Rotary, you support the work we do in your community and around the world. We are a responsible organization that uses nearly 90% of our funding for program expenses.
So, are you still asking yourself:
"What does the Camden-Wyoming Rotary Club do?"
It's simple really. Epitomizing "Service Above Self," we join leaders, exchange ideas, and take action to develop solutions for some of the greatest challenges we face in our community.
Some of our typical projects and activities include:
Meals on Wheels
Dover Hope Medical Clinic
Caring Hearts, Helping Hands
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards)
Men's Homeless Shelter
Medical and Education Center
Colombian Coffee Laboratory
Philippines Medical Mission
Health Clinics in Guatemala and Peru
International Youth Exchange
Group Study Exchange (GSE)
Sure, these service projects keep us busy, but we're not your typical "all work and no play" service organization.
In addition to our weekly dinner meetings (which are filled with entertaining activities), we have other social events throughout the year:
Picnic at Wyoming Park
Club Anniversary Night
Field Trips: Dinner Cruise and local brewery or vineyard tours
