About Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro
It was on April 22, 1948 when the Rotary Club de Misamis was organized. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cebu, it has only 17 charter members. Now known as The Mother Club, RI District 3870, or the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro has 65 registered members and is the biggest in Mindanao.
Service Above Self. This is the motto that the Rotary Club of CDO lives by. A gathering of community & business leaders, and professionals, the club aims to be of service to others through various humanitarian missions, in the form of activities, projects, and advocacies. It is a non-political, non-religious group with members coming from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
The Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro is guided by the 4-Way Test, something that every Rotarian knows and follows by heart:
1. Is it the Truth?
2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
