Mahalo for visiting The Rotary Club of Honolulu

Rotary around the globe has accomplished many wonderful achievements, and continues to do so this year, guided by our new theme "Rotary Opens Opportunities".
Polio continues to be a global concern, with 81 cases in the Pakistan/Afghanistan region, and Rotary continues to provide hope for humanity throughout the world.
Chartered on July 1, 1915, the Rotary Club of Honolulu remains the oldest and largest Rotary Club in Hawai`i.  Our club includes 145 business, civic, and community leaders, both young and seasoned, all with a commitment to a better world through the common purpose of "Service Above Self".
Our club is known for its "Town Hall" lunchtime programs that include influential speakers and panels that give us pause to broaden our understanding of current issues and challenges, and ultimately encourage solution driven conversations.  
Our club meets now via weekly Zoom meetings, with the hope that we will soon be able to gather together to better our relationships, purpose ourselves with thoughtfully planned projects in our community, and to reach out and welcome new leaders to our network.  Each of our members eagerly gives of their own time and resources; their uniqueness and individual abilities collectively are able to move mountains.
Please join us for one of our meetings.  You will find the friendship and variety of vocations represented by our members to be encouraging, thoughtful, and hopefully inspiring enough for you to engage in our purpose!  To learn more about our club and our good work in making Hawai`i a better place, or to find out the particulars of our next meeting, please call Martha at 808-922-5526 or email us at administrator@honolulurotary.com.
 
Our best Aloha,
Rich Proctor, President 2020-21

RI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.  Rotary will cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders.

Statement from Rotary International

 

At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary‚Äôs strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.

Centennial Park Waikiki
 
Centennial Park Waikiki  100 Years Rotary Service
 
 

Waikiki of today is worlds away from the wetlands, mudflats, fishponds and taro fields of the past. A walk among the modern concrete towers of our world-famous tourist destination reveals little in the way of culture or history and even less in green space.

Thanks to Rotary District 5000, Rotarians throughout the State of Hawaii, friends, neighbors and businesses in Waikiki, the only remaining patch of under-developed land in central Waikiki will soon be transformed from a barren debris-strewn gravel lot into an oasis of greenery, education, culture and family activities.
