“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney said in his recent presidential message, “Rotary provides a way to connect to our communities, to network professionally, and to build strong and lasting relationships.”
Our North Coast Rotary Club seeks diversity in an effort to represent the communities we serve. Members bring their experiences from banking, education, real estate, retail, small business ownership, human resources, law, community service agencies, senior care, libraries, landscaping services, etc.
We exchange ideas, bringing our expertise and diverse perspectives to help solve some of the toughest problems. The North Coast Club focuses on our youth, supporting education in ethical decision-making, public speaking, essay writing, peace building, world cultures and developing leadership skills and a lifelong commitment to community service.
We take action to bring lasting change to our communities here and around the world. Locally, we spearheaded donations from multiple rotary clubs and a matching Rotary International Grant to the Lorain County Dolly Parton Imagination Library, and support for a refrigerated truck for Second Harvest. We donated to Avon and Avon Lake’s libraries’ Story Book Trails, Community Resource Services and its Sheffield/Sheffield Lake equivalent, among other organizations, and spread mulch for Sheffield Lake Pride Day. We create positive change in our communities.
In partnership with other clubs and organizations including missionaries, the North Coast Club has provided drinking water solutions in Haiti, dresses for girls at an orphanage in Uganda, personal and school items for children of Chinandega Nicaragua, ShelterBoxes for the displaced families of Nepal, and Medical Equipment and Supplies for countries in need.
It’s amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together!
