About Cabarrus Rotary

The Rotary Club of Cabarrus County was founded on September 11, 1985. We meet every Thursday morning at the Cabarrus Family Medicine facility in Concord, NC from 7:30 am – 8:30 am.

We are a group of diverse local business men and women who believe in serving our community and our world. We volunteer, raise money to fund grants and scholarship, and enjoy a great deal of fellowship and family involvement. We meet every Thursday morning and are always looking for new Rotarians.

Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges. Our efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.

Junior Rotarians are the children, grandchildren, little brothers or sisters, and even godchildren of our rotary club members. They range in age from 3 to 14, but any ages are welcome really! It is intended to be an experience where kids can learn about Rotary and serve our community starting at a very young age. It is the club’s mission that this will lead to our participation in Interact clubs in high school, Rotaract clubs in college, and eventually to us becoming future Rotarians.

Cabarrus County Junior Rotarians
On November 11, 2004, our club created the Junior Rotarian program and dedicated our meeting to them as “Junior Rotarian Day.” The Junior Rotarian program was created to recognize the children and/or grandchildren of rotarians in our club as an important members. When the children were introduced to the club, they received a badge, a certificate, and a 4-way test and then be “inducted” by President Alan Goodman.

The Junior Rotarian program is very simple so that families can participate when they choose, in much the same way our current service projects work…our committee will provide as much information as possible about the projects and the age appropriateness of each opportunity. We hope to offer 1-2 unique Junior Rotarian service opportunities a year and also encourage members to bring their Junior Rotarians along during some of our existing projects.

JRs are kept informed through a quarterly newsletter that is mailed to the kids that will help them feel like special members of our club. We include recognitions of service achievements, information about upcoming service opportunities and other kid-friendly ideas for “service above self.” This will be a way, especially for some of the younger kids, to learn about rotary even if they are not able to participate in all the projects.

Over the past year or so, our program committee has taken into account occasions when our JRs are out of school and planned special programs that interest them.

Our goal is to have our children involved in our Rotary experience first hand and eventually lead to involvement in Interact and Rotaract clubs in the future. We hope this will be a lasting and worthwhile effort for our families! Please feel free to e-mail Lisa Perry if you are interested in having your child join us!

Distinguished Rotarians

The Rotary District 7680 Distinguished Rotarian Awards were first awarded during the 1993-94 Rotary year at the District 7680 Conference. Each of the clubs in District 7680 has the opportunity to honor a member of their club for a distinguished tenure as a Rotarian. The award should be presented to a Rotarian who has exemplified “Service Above Self” in his/her daily life as a Rotarian and a member of his/her community.

Each club selects a Distinguished Rotarian from their membership on an annual basis, and submits that name with supporting documentation to the District Governor. The District Governor presents each recipient an appropriate award at the District Conference.
