From The President Print

Welcome to the Havelock-Cherry point Rotary Club! Chartered October 21, 1980, the Havelock –Cherry Point Club currently has 22 members of the finest business and service people in the community. This club is about fun, friendship, and helping those in need both in our community and around the world. At a weekly meeting, one will immediately realize that the Havelock-Cherry Point Rotary Club members are people who make a difference through the principles of service above self, understanding, and goodwill.
Dedicated to improving lives in the Havelock-Cherry Point area, the club has supported a number of community initiatives such as the Wounded Warrior Program, Intern Mountain Therapy Reading Education Assistance (R.E.A.D) program, the Boys and Girls Club of Havelock Cherry Point, Havelock High School Interact Club, and Annunciation Catholic Middle School Interact Club. This year, Havelock-Cherry Point Rotary Club plans to continue to build its current programs and add new members as we look forward for opportunities to support this year’s Rotary International theme of “Reaching Within to Embrace Humanity.”
Rotarians practice a 4-Way Test that measures words and actions by their truthfulness, fairness, goodwill, and benefit to all. Encouraging high ethical standards in one’s profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days.
If you have the passion to make a difference in the lives of others, please join us at one of our meetings held every Thursday morning at 7:30 A.M. at the Cherry Point United Methodist Church. The fellowship formed in Rotary will last a lifetime.
Yours in Rotary,
Nathaniel H. Johnson

Welcome to the Havelock-Cherry point Rotary Club! Chartered October 21, 1980, the Havelock –Cherry Point Club currently has 23 members of the finest business and service people in the community. This club is about fun, friendship, and helping those in need both in our community and around the world. At a weekly meeting, one will immediately realize that the Havelock-Cherry Point Rotary Club members are people who make a difference through the principles of service above self, understanding, and goodwill. 

Dedicated to improving lives in the Havelock-Cherry Point area, the club has supported a number of community initiatives such as the Wounded Warrior Program, Intern Mountain Therapy Reading Education Assistance (R.E.A.D) program, coins for Alzheimer’s Research (CART FUND), Boys and Girls Club of Havelock Cherry Point, Havelock High School Interact Club, Annunciation Catholic Middle School Interact Club and the Hospice House in Newport.  This year, the Havelock-Cherry Point Rotary Club plans to continue to build its current programs and add new members as we look forward for opportunities to support this year’s Rotary International theme of “Engage Rotary, Change Lives.”  In Rotary, our business is non-profit and a pursuit of unity through service to the community. Our reward is not money, but the happiness and satisfaction of seeing a better, more peaceful world that is achieved through our own efforts.      

In this Rotary year, 2013-2014, I ask you to join me in putting our theme “Engage Rotary, Change Lives” to work for us.  We as Rotarians have a wonderful gift in Rotary; we all want to make a “real” difference.  By getting involved staying engaged and motivated, with the work we do in our club, we will “change lives.”  When we make a difference in someone’s life, our own life will forever be changed.

“Service Above Self” is more than just a motto.  It is a selfless act of giving back to others, by a group of dedicated individuals, as yourselves, that put the needs of their community and the world before them.  When people work together for a common good, much can be accomplished.  Thank you Havelock-Cherry Point Rotarians for your commitment to making this happen, it is a pleasure and privilege to work with you all.

If you have the passion to make a difference in the lives of others, please join us at one of our meetings held every Thursday morning at 7:30 A.M, at the Cherry Point United Methodist Church. The fellowship formed in Rotary will last a lifetime.

Yours in Rotary,
