The Rotary Club of Greater Huntsville (RCGH) is a group of dedicated individuals—Rotarians, each actively engaged to collaborate and commit our collective talents and available resources toward meeting needs within our community; locally, regionally and internationally. We operate as a member of Rotary International, a world-wide network of more than 34,000 clubs, in communities at the “grass-root level,” each with a common goal to serve others and change lives for the better.
Current Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang said, “Many of the ideas and values that we cherish in Rotary are not unique to Rotary. I find many traditional Chinese values reflected in Rotary: values of service and responsibility of respect for family and for others.”
One of Rotary’s most important international service projects has been to provide resources to immunize and thereby protect every child on our planet from the effects of polio. This is a tremendous undertaking but we are determined to eliminate this terrible disease in our lifetime, and change the lives of children and their children for the better, forever. We are so close to achieving our goal! This can happen—this will happen!
I believe in Rotary because the beliefs align with my personal values. Rotary beliefs begin with a four-way test and ask the following questions:
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Our club gathers weekly to share opportunities for networking, fellowship, social and intellectual engagement, and for fun. We meet Wednesdays in the Redstone Federal Credit Union’s Conference facility on Wynn Drive; lunch begins at noon and the meeting ends at 1:00 p.m. We also meet in smaller groups to accomplish our service projects in our community, or to just socialize and discuss innovative ways we can make a difference and change the lives of those less fortunate.

So, please gather with us, have fun learning about what we are doing in our community, and live your beliefs through Rotary. Experience our service to others which will Light Up the World!
Carol Tevepaugh, President, 2015-16
