Rotary Honours Concert
The Rotary Honours Concert celebrates the artistic talents of exceptional young people in our community. It speaks to the dedication of teachers and parents in keeping the artistic threads of the past alive to pass on to future generations. As children’s author, Hendrik Willem van Loon wrote: “The arts are an even better barometer of what is happening in our world than the stock market or the debates in congress.” The award winners chosen to perform in the 2017 RHC showcase this artistic talent, as well as the variety and scope of the arts available in our community.

Rotarians have long been committed to serving youth in their communities: Rotary offers educational programs such as Rotary Peace Fellowships, and provides grant funds for scholarships and service projects conducted by, or benefiting, youth. These student/youth programs can change the lives of those who participate; young people can earn scholarships, travel on cultural exchanges, or help a community through a service project.
The New Generations Avenue of Service – which became Rotary’s fifth “Avenue of Service” in 2010 – streamlines the exceptional work that Rotarians do with youth and young adults. It entrenches a fundamental idea: that every Rotarian has a responsibility to support the personal and professional success of young people, while recognizing the diversity of their needs.
