Through the years Vocation Service has consistently been important to Rotary. Rotary was founded on the idea that like-minded business and professional leaders could grow in their own vocation and personal life by meeting together to develop relationships and by working together to serve their community.
The Rotary Club of Easton participates in this Avenue of Service in several ways:
- New members give a “classification talk” in which they introduce themselves to the Club by telling their family story and by explaining their vocational choices.
- We occasionally meet offsite to learn more about a local business or community organization.
- We bestow an annual “Ritchey J. Ricci Teacher of the Year” award to a teacher from one of our local districts. This $1,000 award is to fund a classroom activity that is outside the scope of the school budget.
