We are a group of 55 or so people who support Rotary International's motto of Service Above Self. Rotary is an opportunity to build life-long friendships with Rotarians around the world and experience the personal fulfillment of helping others.
Our 2022-2023 club Co-Presidents are Nancy Ragus and Kareen Zeitounzian, pictured here. Starting July 1, 2023, our club's President will be Tom Wolanski.
Our Red Raider Patriot Plate (RRPP) fundraiser was on Saturday, May 14, 2022 via take-out at the Perinton VFW Post 8495 on Macedon Center Rd.
Proceeds from this event will be distributed to mostly-local charities throughout the year through our Charitable Giving Program (below).
Thank you for your support -- we couldn't have done it without you!
Onward to RRPP 2023!
Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.
We strive to apply Rotary's Four-Way Test in all we say and do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The 2021-22 Rotary International theme is "Imagine Rotary." The dots are Rotary's 7 areas of action. Purple, green and white together celebrate diversity. Purple is the color of Rotary's polio campaign, green is the environment, a digging stick doing the hard work. White is peace. ... Imagine what we can do together.
Fairport Rotary Club provides funding assistance to charity organizations with special financial needs. We evaluate and select recipients twice a year, in the fall and again in the spring.
Pre-pandemic, we donated to 32 charities annually, including Advent House, Erie Canal bicycle repair stations (Village of Fairport), Fairport Challenger Baseball, Literacy Volunteers, and Perinton Food Shelf. We continue to fund charities that apply and meet our criteria for funding.
Currently the only data Fairport Rotary Club's website host shares with Fairport Rotary are 1) the number of times our Charitable Giving packet has been downloaded and 2) the number of page views in the past 7 days and the past 30 days.
Fairport Rotary Club's website's host tells us they collect data to optimize Fairport Rotary's page loading speed. The website host has never shared this data or the page loading speed with Fairport Rotary Club.
Fairport Rotary Club has the option to collect additional data and has chosen not to do so. Should this change, the Cookie banner will reappear noting a change and allow website visitors to opt out of some or all portions of the new data collection.
