We especially relate to this quote by Muhammed Ali: ‘Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.’ All of us know the true meaning of the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self.’ “
Ten of the 52 clubs that make up Rotary District 5,000 are located on Maui and Lanai.
Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional and civic leaders.
The clubs’ members meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and get things done in our community.
