SummerFest was developed by the International Committee of the Rotary Club of Newberg Early Birds and proceeds benefit the charitable activities of communities all over the world.
We are an interactive, light hearted, fun loving club, yet we take serving and giving back very seriously. We engage in regular interaction as a group, with quarterly fellowship events that we Rotarians call Firesides, and spontaneous one-on-one interaction we refer to as Brunch Buddies.
We work together on a variety of projects. We tend to laugh a lot. We’ve developed friendships. We learn to trust each other as we share out efforts in service together, and out of that there are trust relationships and business interactions among club members with out various professions.We enjoy great breakfasts and excellent programs.
We have Fundraising events that we orchestrate each year raising the funds that allow us to engage in our service and support projects:
Holiday Food Baskets and keeping supplies in local Food Pantries for families in need.
SMART Reading Program, Habitat for Humanity builds, City Beautification Projects, Park and Playground Construction.
