The Rotary Club of Cambridge was founded in 1922 and like all Rotary Clubs throughout the world encourages and fosters the ideal of service above self. Our goal is to build a better world, emphasizing service activities by individuals and groups that enhance the quality of life and human dignity, encouraging high ethical standards and creating peace in the world.
