Monticello Rotary is a service club in Monticello, Indiana. Proceeds from this triathlon help our club support our service projects.
Our motto is Service Above Self
The Rotary Club of Monticello is all about service to the community, country, and to the world. This is accomplished through Five Avenues of Service:
1. Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
2. Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
3. Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
4. International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
5. Youth Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
