Rotary Club of Lexington Park

Rotary Serving Humanity (2016-2017 Rotary International Theme)

International Service

The International Lane of Service is a recognized Rotary lane of service. This lane extends the focus of Rotary Club beyond local matters to a global outlook in support of Health, Hunger and Humanitarian causes. The Rotary Club of Lexington Park provides vital tools where expertise and local funds are not available. Being part of a network, the club makes a difference in the developing world without becoming entangled in overseas bureaucratic administrative difficulties. The club works - Rotary Club to Rotary Club - in many parts of the world, alleviating poverty and sickness. Needed funds are raised by club members and volunteers within our club go abroad to provide management and technical expertise.
