Onondaga North Rotary Club seeks to further the Rotary club mission of bringing together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action in their communities. Through the commitment and work of our members, we strive to extend the reach of this young club and create a bigger impact in our projects, with the goal of creating a better Onondaga North community in which to live.
What do Colonel Sanders, J.C. Penny and Thomas Mann have in common?
That's right...all Rotarians.
Rotary is a service club. It is the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world. Becoming a Rotarian gives you the richly rewarding opportunity to do something for somebody else. Membership in a Rotary club makes you a better community citizen and consists of the most active citizens of their communities. These communities span all around the world with over 33,000 clubs in over 200 nations and geographical regions.
The service, social aspects and club projects are fun and enjoyable. The meetings are fun and educational. Who wouldn’t want to have the opportunity to have fun, network, build lasting relationships and serve their community.

Flags of Honor and Gratitude
To honor and thank Veterans, soldiers, police, firefighters, people who volunteer, family and friends, Onondaga North members organize and erect a field of waving American flags on the lawn of Wegmans on Route 57, in Liverpool, for two weeks around Veteran's Day.
These flags are dedicated to those who, through Service Above Self, have made America and the World a better and safer place to live. This event is organized by Onondaga North and made possible by the generosity of those in the community who share this same honor and gratitude towards our veterans and community leaders.
Onondaga North welcomes you to share the experience and invites you to participate by purchasing a flag for yourself, your family or your business. All proceeds will go to local Veteran organizations and other local charities.
WE THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
One of the most iconic events of Summer in Central New York is the visting of the Syracuse Nationals. Not only is the event a spectacular display of vintage and collector cars, but it is also dedicated to supporting the local community through charitable donations. In 2014, the event raised $98,000 for charity, with $68,000 going to the Syracuse Ronald McDonald House.
Onondaga North, teaming with other local service clubs, supports the Nationals by organizing and manning the Nationals' annual picnic. Thousands of hungry patrons come to enjoy the food, music and Oneida Shores Park.
Come support Onondaga North RC and the Syracuse Nationals at the NYS Fairgrounds this year!
Books for the World
Books for the World is a project of participating Rotary clubs of the USA and Southern Africa. The project started from a few Rotary districts to Rotary District 9300 in South Africa and now has spread across the USA and throughout Southern Africa. The governments of Southern Africa face the challenge of growing populations and new, underdeveloped economies, leaving the public and private school systems with very few books to educate their youth.
With the emphasis on literacy in Rotary, Onondaga North RC's participation in the Rotary Books for the World project is an easy and natural service project to support the international community.
Business Development and networking was the second original reason for the beginning of Rotary. Everyone needs to network and Rotary consists of a cross section of every business community with members from all walks of life. They are leaders of business and various professions from art, government & military, religion, all disciplines and the professions. Rotary develops confidence as well as public speaking skills in its Rotarians through its networking and public communication opportunities.
