Rotary is dedicated to providing for the needs of our local community as well as national and international projects.

During the Covid-19 crisis, many residents had great difficulties. We made donations to the Essex Social Services Fund and Shoreline Soup Kitchen & Pantry to help with those in need of assistance and food.

We have also supported FISH, the Ivoryton Alliance and Essex Memorial Hall. Internationally, we have supported the Sister Cities Essex, Haiti installation of solar panels at the Deschapelles Community Library.

Rotary Club of Essex provides support to our local community including providing scholarships for high school students who are residents of Essex.

We also support Rotary International projects worldwide. “Visit the Rotary International Site” to learn more about Rotary projects worldwide.
