Who We Are
Who We Are
Pargas Rotary Club was established in 1951 and has therefore existed for more than 70 years. We are today around 50 members, women and men, and we belong to District 1410.
Weekly meetings where members from different professions meet for lunch is the foundation of Rotary. In these meetings, interesting presentations are given by our members or invited guest speakers. Visits to various places are also a part of our program.
We support humanitarian projects carried out by the international Rotary organization, participate in Youth Exchange, and promote the well-being of our vicinity.
A Hobby with a Purpose
We support the wellbeing and development of young people and work for a better local environment.
Locally Pargas Rotary Club supports Youth Exchange, allowing youngsters to study a year abroad and through scholarships in Pargas. We believe that youth exchange is the best grassroots internationalization and peace education.
We also highlight important social development needs. We organize local projects where members can contribute on a voluntary basis.
