Service

At the end of each meeting, Starkville Rotarians repeat the Rotary Motto, “Service above self: He profits most who serves best.” Since its founding in 1924, the Starkville Rotary Club has contributed in a multitude of ways to the betterment of the community and world.

The Four Avenues of Service

The Four Avenues of Service are Rotary’s philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club;
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards;
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community;
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
