Service Above Self is Rotary’s principal motto, which means that every Rotarian is responsible for finding ways to improve the quality of life in his or her community and in those around the world through service.
The role of service committees is to lead the Bloomington Rotary Club’s service initiatives and help develop and implement educational, humanitarian and vocational service projects that benefit the local community and communities in other countries.
