That's the motto of Rotary International - and that's what we
put in motion at the Macomb Centennial Morning Rotary Club!
We're a club in action - whether it's setting up an event at
the local state park, helping a veteran's family paint a house
or serving food at a local heritage celebration. Our service
projects demonstrate our commitment to the community as we live
out the ideals of the Four Way Test. If you have a passion for
making the world a better place through service, come join us.
Check the "About Us" section for the meeting time and location or. Thank you for making Rotary part of your day!
The family of Rotary extends beyond individual Rotarians and
Rotary clubs to include other service-minded people who help
with the organization's work. Groups such as Rotaract, Interact,
and Rotary Community Corps serve side by side with sponsor
clubs, using their diverse skills to improve the quality of life
in their communities. Below are some of the latest statistics
available, as of 31 October 2011.

Courthouse where Abraham Lincoln addressed citizens in 1858 with
a sunrise blazing to the East indicating morning.
