Stroudsburgs Rotary:  99 Years Strong
On May 1, 2021—Stroudsburgs Rotary will commemorate 99 Years of Service. And boy is there a lot to celebrate! Here are some details.
 
A group of Stroudsburg businessmen chartered the Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs on May 1, 1922. The club served both East Stroudsburg and Stroudsburg. It was a "men only" service club from 1922 until 1986. Women were sponsored for membership in 1987. A few years ago, the name was adjusted to reflect the changes in Rotary’s image and became Stroudsburgs Rotary.
 
The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Therefore, Stroudsburgs Rotary members collectively develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence.  Also supported are programs that provide educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals.  
 
In keeping with the Rotary motto Service Above Self—Stroudsburgs Rotary members meet weekly for lunch to fellowship and further the group’s service-based goals and objectives. There is also a Satellite group which meets in the evening.
 
Stroudsburgs Rotary conducts "Service Projects" on National, International and Local levels.
