President’s Message

Welcome! I’d like to introduce you to the Rotary Club of Cincinnati. We’re a premier service organization with more than 300 members who are leaders in business and the professions. Our mission is to provide “selfless service in the community and the world through involved and engaged members”. There are 35,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries around the world with more than 1.2 Million members. Our club is one of the oldest and largest, with a rich history of service to the Cincinnati area, and globally.

We started the first school in Cincinnati for children with disabilities more than 100 years ago (now the Roselawn-Condon School). And next year, our club will mark its 100th anniversary of starting Camp Allyn in Batavia, which continues to be the site of programs for children and adults with disabilities.

Our club’s World Affairs Committee supports humanitarian projects in other countries, most recently in Uganda, Madagascar, and Ghana (providing solar-powered electricity, books, and desks to schools; and clean water and sanitation to communities).

Given our focus on improving the lives of others, in recent months we flexed to take on five local projects to meet urgent community needs due to COVID-19. These projects provided meals to first responders and health care workers and their families while supporting local restaurants, supplied masks to day care and restaurant workers, gave financial support to those facing eviction. Our club members will continue to flex as needed to help meet community needs.

As we work to improve the lives of others, we improve our own lives and grow in our friendships within the club in the process. And we have a lot of fun!  Why not join us?  Please contact our office at 513-421-1080 to learn more.

Thanks,

Brett Lebhar
Rotary Club of Cincinnati
President 2020-21
