Local Service Projects

Cheat Lake Rotary has a rich tradition of doing good work in our community. We have been serving our community for more than 40 years. Our membership takes great pride in doing hands-on projects which not only benefit the community but also help to build a stronger relationship within its membership through service. Throughout the local and International community, Cheat Lake Rotary is known as a Service Organization that gets things done. This is why each year we are approached by organizations such as the Cheat Lake Volunteer Fire Department, Pantry Plus More, and many more here please, as well as local churches and civic organizations, to team up doing projects which benefit our community.

Cheat Lake Rotary’s Membership is very closely tied to our local community and projects are often brought to the Club’s Community Service Chairperson by the members themselves. These organizations may also appeal directly to the Board of Directors for assistance with their projects. The Board of Directors then reviews potential projects as to whether they meet Rotary’s Motto of “Service above Self” and the  guidelines provided by Rotary’s “4-Way Test”. The Board of Directors then decides as to whether a certain project meets all requirements and should be implemented. Another way a project can be brought to the attention of Cheat Lake Rotary is through its Grant Request Program.

Each year Cheat Lake Rotarians donate to Rotary’s International’s Foundation. A portion of these donations come back to our Club and are earmarked for Community Service Projects. The current club President decides which projects these funds will go to and how they are to be spent.

Here would be a great place to talk about a lot of the service projects we have worked on or completed over the past 10 years.

A partial list of past and continuing projects:

  • Pantry Plus More Christmas Drive
  • Morgantown Marathon      

Cheat Lake Rotarians embrace their strong tradition of “Service Above Self” by serving both our local and International Communities through Community Service. We strive to make a real difference in the lives of others and therefore making a difference and bettering our own lives.

If you would like to learn more about our projects or are interested in volunteering to participate in future projects, please contact our Community Service Chair.
