Rotary Club of Dallas Serving Those Who Serve
The Rotary International motto "Service Above Self" is more than a saying it defines "the mission" of all Rotarians. The goal is to promote a culture of service that is the outgrowth of each member embracing a lifestyle of service.
The Rotary Club of Dallas focuses on serving individual needs that exist within our community, country, and the world by assisting existing non-profit organizations that are equipped to meet specific needs. This is accomplished by providing each member with opportunities to become personally involved in hands-on service. Additionally, and perhaps more significantly, the club provides monetary support for maintaining and expanding their ability to serve. The desire of the Dallas Rotary Club is to "Serve Those Who Serve." In 2016 financial support totaling $11,000+ was provided to the following organizations:
The Rotary Club of Dallas Georgia
- Paulding Nursing Home
- Christian Motorcyclist Association
- Cobb-Paulding Adult Education
- Family Alliance
- Forgotten Seniors Project
- KCI Kids
- Paulding CASA
- Paulding Education Foundation
- Boys and Girls Club
- Shepherd's Rest Ministries
- Boy Scouts
- Paulding County UGA (4-H)
- Beehive International, Haiti
- Helping Hands of Paulding
The funds that enable the Dallas Rotary Club to contribute to these organizations are gained through two primary sources, club member donations and fundraisers organized and administered by the club. The first fundraiser scheduled in 2017 is the annual golf tournament on May 17 at The Frog in Villa Rica. The Rotary Club extended an invitation to Helpings Hands of Paulding to become co-sponsors and receive proceeds generated by golfer's fees and sponsorships of businesses, corporations, and individuals to aid them in providing food, clothing and additional types of assistance to those in temporary or long term needs.
