Ohio Pathways Rotary E-Club

Rotary e-clubs are a lot like other Rotary clubs: they meet weekly, carry out service projects, support The Rotary Foundation, and socialize with each other. So what’s different about e-clubs? You join your meeting online when it’s convenient for you, day or night, any day of the week.

IYFR Club

IYFR

The International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians is the oldest and largest of the Rotary Fellowships. It began in England in 1947 and has grown to 90 fleets, with more than 3200 members in 32 countries.

All Rotarians can join IYFR. The only requirement for joining is an active interest in boating (ownership of a boat is not required). Local fleets are located worldwide; if there is not a local fleet in your area you can join as an Independent Member.

Boating with fellow Rotarians and friends is a delightful way to share ideas, improve your seamanship, provide support for Rotary service activities, make lasting friendships and practice the ideals of Rotary.
