TO OUR COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD

Have you ever wondered what a Rotary Club can do for our community? Since 1987 the Rotary Club of Windsor has been helping to build the Windsor community to the benefit of young and old. Through fundraising efforts, the Windsor Rotary members have provided equipment for the Windsor Fire Department, the creation of Elsbree Skate Park, floor for the Boys & Girls Club gymnasium and countless other projects. The Rotary Club of Windsor has contributed over 1.5 million dollars both to local and international project since its inception in 1988.
n addition to the physical and financial investment made by Windsor Rotary members, there have been gifts of the heart. Each year the Rotary spends time with seniors in celebration of the holidays. Rotarians have spent countless hours in support of the Salvation Army by greeting shoppers at several Windsor locations. Over the years, the Windsor Rotarians have read to elementary school children and provided counseling to Windsor Middle School and Windsor High School students.
Windsor Rotary Community Foundation has provided more than $100,000 towards scholarships for graduating seniors. Each year the Windsor Rotary Club sponsors student exchange programs, which allow our young residents to travel and live within another country’s culture. In return, Windsor Rotary has hosted students from around the globe providing them with an opportunity to live in the homes of Rotary families and attend Windsor High School.
