The purpose of club service is to foster the successful administration of a Rotary Club. Club service is regarded by many Rotary leaders as the most important part of the club mechanism because without a well functioning club, little else can be performed via the other four Avenues of Service.
Club service involves regularly attending meetings, sponsoring new members, participating in club fellowship, taking part in programs, serving on committees and on the club's board of directors, and representing the club in outside activities. Rotarians have an obligation to strengthen their club, so all members are encouraged to be involved in Club Service.
Irvine Rotary Club Service Projects
One of our fun-raising events each year.
Irvine Rotary created the Irvine Bowlathon as a club project and service project. The Bowlathon was a wonderful event which not only brings together Irvine Rotarians and their families, but friends of Irvine Rotary, who not only bowled together in teams but took part in the silent auction, with items donated by Irvine Rotary.
Participants vary from ages 2 all the way to the 90s and families bowl in teams at Irvine Lanes with some good spirited competition in play. This is a great event for children to be introduced to the club and raise money for Irvine Rotary’s many projects, including our dental clinics in Ensenada, support of Camp Pendleton troops, Juvenile Diabetes and all the other non-profits we support.
