4TH OLDEST ROTARY CLUB
PHF & EREY CLUB
Individual effort when well directed can accomplish much, but the greatest good must necessarily come from the combined efforts of many men. Individual efforts may be turned towards individual needs, but combined effort should be dedicated to the service of mankind.
To enhance the quality of life of the poor, the underprivileged and the marginalized in our community and to promote goodwill and peace.
An effective and vibrant club dedicated to serving people, regardless of cultural, racial and religious divides, following the Rotary ideal of Service above Self.
