Rochester Rotaract Club Chartered

District 5960 recently welcomed the newly chartered Rotaract Club of Rochester Minnesota.

The St. Croix Falls Rotary Club wants to send our greetings  to the new Rotaract Club and say “welcome to the district.”  Unfortunately, a representative from our club was unable to attend personally, but we were happy to send a gift to celebrate their Charter event.

The Rotaract Club celebrated their charter event on Wed, May 19, 2010.  The event took place at the Rochester Golf & Country Club in Rochester MN.  A Club Chartering Event is a special time to mark the beginning for a club and we are very excited for the Rochester Rotaract club.

So, what is Rotaract?

Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true “partners in service” and key members of the family of Rotary.

As one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 7,000 clubs in about 163 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.

How does it work?

All Rotaract efforts begin at the local, grassroots level, with members addressing their communities’ physical and social needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service.
