Description of the Rochester Latino Rotary Club

“The Rochester Latino Rotary Club is a volunteer community service organization seeking to embrace the talents of professional and business Latinos and others who are interested in enriching the lives of local and World Latino Communities.”

The club embraces individuals of all ethnic and racial backgrounds. Its focus is on the recruitment and retention of individuals interested in serving the Latino communities. Most, but not all, the members are bilingual. Thus, meetings are mostly held in English, though Spanish is also used. The Club is cognizant of the big challenges faced by Latinos locally and abroad. The projects undertaken thus far have emphasized increasing literacy, including teaching English to Spanish-speaking individuals, promoting reading and the importance of remaining in school and pursuing higher education.
 
Currently our club holds a general meeting on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30pm. We conduct an "e-meeting" via our discussion board the second Wednesday of the month. We hold our board meetings during the third week of the month, currently on Wednesdays at 5:30pm. The last week of the month is reserved for committees to meet.
