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

During this Covid-19 crisis, many residents have had great difficulties. We have 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 recently 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.
