Effectively immediately and for the remainder of September, Waynesville Rotary is returning to ZOOM only meetings. Due to the current Covid surge and staff shortage at our primary meeting location, we will be meeting virtually once again. The situation will be assessed at the end of the month with hopes for returning to face-to-face meetings in October.
We may be reached via USPS at PO Box 1590, Waynesville, NC 28786; by email at firstname.lastname@example.org; and by FAX at 828-348-5538. This contact information is also relevant for the Waynesville Rotary Foundation.
Waynesville Rotary believes in "Service Above Self" and base our local and global services on that value. Locally, we provide scholarships for students at the community college and university levels, provide backpacks of food to children who otherwise wouldn't have something to eat on weekends, and provide construction and other projects through United Way Day of Caring and Habitat for Humanity. These are just a few of our community service initiatives.
