For all seasons: Service above self, in word and deed

by Charlie Price
 Rotarians everywhere know the value of community service.

Since joining Rotary, I have observed the power of words fulfilled through action. Civic principles are not philosophical concepts for Club 29; instead, we put theory into practice, and I suspect that is the case at chapters everywhere. The concept of “Service Above Self” is carried out in far-reaching ways, but most importantly, where it matters most: in the places our members call home.

Those words have been Rotary’s motto for decades, an inspiring refrain for Rotary members united for progress throughout the world.

Rotary Magazine often features glossy photos of vaccination campaigns, food distribution and education projects abroad, programs dedicated to helping others. These efforts are noble, necessary and worthwhile. The work done in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas may be less visible on a global scale but its impact is felt locally. Neighbors in need benefit when we dedicate ourselves to serving our fellow Oklahomans.  READ MORE
