Norwich Rotary launches the first Rotary Community Corps (RCC) in New England

The Norwich Rotary Community Corps (RCC) received their Charter last night making them the very first RCC in D7980 and in New England.

About 50 attendees gathered at the Holiday Inn in Norwich last night to recognize the official launch of the Norwich Rotary Community Corps by the Norwich Rotary Club.

Rotary Community Corps is a group of non-Rotarians who share our commitment to service. RCC members plan and carry out projects in their communities and support local Rotary club projects.  RCCs empower community members to initiate and implement their own service projects and facilitate collaboration between Rotarians and non-Rotarians in their community development endeavors.

There are more than 7,500 corps in over 80 countries. RCC was adopted by Rotary International in 1988

The Rotary Community Corps is for people who want to do something in their community, but are unable for some reason to make the commitment to Rotary membership.

Congratulations to the Norwich Connecticut Rotary Club for sponsoring the very first RCC in our District and in New England.
