Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

 

2018-2019 Theme

RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”

 

We are a member-based organization, a club-based organization, and a service-based organization; we are local, regional, and international; we are community members, business people and professionals, working and retired, active in nearly every country in the world. Every one of our 1.2 million members has a unique set of goals, experiences, and priorities; every one of us has a unique understanding of Rotary.

The Rotary Club of Tyler Welcomes You!

The Rotary Club of Tyler has a rich history. It was chartered on May 1, 1920. Many of the most  influential persons in East  Texas  history were members or officers of the Tyler Rotary Club.

Our club is composed of entrepreneurs, business leaders, civic leaders and professionals from the  fields of medicine, accounting  and the  law, among others. We support a number of community and civic projects, as well as projects that bring needed medical attention to some of the most impoverished parts of the world.

If you are in business in Tyler, our club offers you an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals – persons who desire to operate their business affairs on the highest plane of ethics and integrity.

What would it take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to “Service Above Self”.

You are welcome to join us for lunch, a good program and warm fellowship to experience how our club is contributing to changing the world and those lives in our community, as well.

Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Tyler.

George Roberts, Jr.

President, 2018-2019
