Who are we? What do we do?
Rotary Club Szczecin Pomerania was founded in 2002 as an international club. This means that the official language of the club is English and therefore the members are not only local inhabitants of Szczecin but also foreigners residing in or visiting Szczecin. Until now 7 nationalities have been represented in the Club.
The Rotary motto ?Service Above Self? conveys the humanitarian spirit of the organization. The main goal of our Club is to organize help and support for the local community through charity projects.
The principal activities of the Club have been:
? Support for child care centers, including dental help

Funding of Projects
Financial resources needed to reach our charity goals are obtained through the organization of various charity events, the two main ones being the Annual International Golf Tournament in Binowo in June and the Annual Concert ?Talents of Szczecin? in November.
These events can only be successful with the support of our sponsors, the participation of the public and the work of our active members. We owe you all a heartfelt Thank You.
