(www.beachrotary.com)LONG BEACH - The Peninsula's Rotary club has recently launched a new Web site which, in addition to providing links and downloads to Rotary International information, offers their energetic club calendar, a photo gallery of club activities, maps, driving directions and a press room.

This year's theme of "Service Above Self" is also the organization's motto. As the largest international humanitarian service organization in the world, Rotary promotes peace and understanding through its educational and humanitarian programs. The organizations's top philanthropic goal is to end polio worldwide, something it is responsible for nearly achieving. All members of the community are invited to learn about Rotary - the organization and this club - by visiting the new site and also to contact any member listed online for more information.

Rotary's 1.2 million members worldwide remain dedicated to volunteer community service, promoting high ethical standards in all vocations and furthering international peace. In addition to thousands of volunteer hours, each year Rotary contributes millions of dollars in humanitarian aid and relief around the globe, funds 1,000 scholars to study abroad and provides cross-cultural exchange for 7,000 young leaders.

SW Pacific County Peninsula Rotary meets Tuesday mornings, 7:30 a.m., at the Lightship Restaurant in Long Beach. Contact Shelly Pollock for more information: 665-5388 or shelly@beachrotary.com.

Founded in Chicago in 1905, Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians who are members of some 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 165 countries.
