Our Club

The Southern Sussex Rotary club was chartered on September 29th, 1992. As we celebrate more than 25 years of making a difference, we strive each year to become more active in our community, country, and the world. Our purpose is to make all three better through our service efforts.

Our Purpose

Our first responsibility is to our community: to our children, to local needs and to promoting education, health and safety in order to provide a better future for all. We do this through humanitarian activities – from local projects to global initiatives – with the support of Rotary International, our District office and other clubs.

Our Commitment

As our Delmarvalous communities grow and change, Southern Sussex is committed to engaging dynamic speakers and passionate members, guests and visitors so that we may continue to meet our residents’ needs, support other groups of action, and find new ways to reach our neighbors.
