celebratepic main 2Welcome to the Venice Nokomis Rotary Club of Florida.  The Venice Nokomis Rotary Club is the local member of Rotary International, the world's first service club organization.  Its more than 1.2 million members in over 32,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries volunteer their time and talent to further the Rotary motto, Service Above Self.

For years, Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through the four Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity.

Club Service
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs.

Vocational Service
Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.

main1Community Service
Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service
International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace.  It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to funding disaster relief via Shelter Box USA, to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.  Rotary’s Rotarians are members of Rotary clubs.  Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International.

Fund raising activities
Throughout its history the Venice Nokomis Rotary Club has contributed thousands of dollars each year to community and international service projects.  These funds, at times exceeding $50,000 annually are raised through two major fund raising events and through the efforts and contributions of our individual members.

  • The Rotary Fine Arts and Craft Festival is held in January each year and features 100-150 artists from all over the country.
  • The Rotary Duck Pluck is held in January in conjunction with the Rotary Fine Arts and Craft Festival.
  • The Toast to Venice wine tasting and gourmet food sampling is held at the Historic Venice Train Depot in March
For Rotary, The Four-Way Test is the cornerstone of all action. It has been for years, and it will be in the future. Of the things we think, say or do...
  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
