The Norwalk Rotary club has been a very active partner in the community since 1929 supporting various community service projects and being a prominent vendor at the Norwalk Oyster Fest. They distribute dictionaries to all Norwalk 3rd graders each year and have helped fund the library in a Charter School in South Norwalk
The club is currently working on a TRF VTT Global Global for Early Childhood Development Training in Sierra Leone.
Much has changed since 1929 (understatement of epic proportion) including the membership and potential membership demographics of the city. The city of he Norwalk has undergone a transformation from being a manufacturing hub to being a service based economy like many parts of the US. The gradual economic shift has had a negative impact on club membership. President Brian Falkowski, President-elect Chris Cooke and the board are committed to leveraging the 6th largest population in Connecticut and growing the membership of the Norwalk Rotary club in the coming years. They took the first step today by inducting a new member.
The board is also committed to expanding and honing their public relations efforts to streamline communication and stakeholder messaging. More fellowships are also on the horizon.
The Norwalk Rotary club meets at lunchtime on Wednesdays at the Norwalk Inn. They are a very nice group of Rotarians which makes this an ideal place to drop-in for a make up.
