The Watertown Evening Rotary Club was chartered March 26, 2010.
Our club, one of three in Watertown, has a focus on youth and youth activities. We helped launch the South Jefferson Backpack food program as well as the one in Sackets Harbor and the Watertown Districts. We have also provided new books for children in the Watertown City School District and the Flower Memorial Summer Program, as well as supporting WPBS' Whiz Quiz, the Rotary Handicapped program at Dodge Pond, and the Salvation Army's youth programming. We also are a Gold Sponsor of the Jefferson County Genealogy Fair and support ShelterBox USA which hand delivers emergency shelter to families around the world who have been displaced by disaster or conflict.
Internationally, we combine our funds with the other two Watertown Clubs and other Jefferson County Clubs to support Rotary projects in other parts of the world. We also participate in the International Youth Exchange Program.
We have done a number of fundraisers including a pancake breakfast and a spaghetti dinner. Recently we assisted the Clayton club with their Gun Show. We also sell Roses with the Watertown Noon Club and their Rose Day Sale.
Keeping with the Rotarian mission that is "Service Above Self," Watertown Evening Rotary also assists in community programs. We have helped participants in the Childrens' Miracle Network to build gingerbread houses at Christimas time and decorate cookies for Valentine's Day. We also volunteer with the Flower Memorial Library's Trick or Treat Event.
Currently, the club is compromised of members from all different professional fields. We are always looking to expand our membership so if you are interested please feel to attend a meeting, as they are always open to the public, or contact us HERE.
Although we are a group of professionals who work hard to make a difference, we do enjoy the occasional wind-down in the form of dinners, picnics, and trips to other Rotary clubs within District 7040. If you seek opportunities for service and enjoy fellowship with fellow business people and professionals, then consider joining Watertown Evening Rotary. We hope to see you soon!
