Our Stories
The Rotary Club of Aurora  4 Way Speech Contest was won by Leo Diamantis from Aurora High School his topic is The Cell Phone Epidemic . Each student was asked to prepare a 5 to 7 minute speech on a topic of their choice incorporating the Rotary International 4 Way Test values. The elements of the 4 Way Test are shown below as are the participating Rotary Club of Aurora member judges.  Leo moved on to speak in front of the Rotary International District 6630 4 Way Speech judges in Kent. The winner of that competition was Alexis Wade of Riverside High School in Painesville speaking on Sexual Assault "Stranger Danger", Colin Moore of Wadsworth High School in Wadsworth came in second speaking on the Organic Food Supply, "Bee Organic" and Leo Diamantis of Aurora High School in Aurora came in third speaking on Cell Phones, "The Cell Phone Epidemic".  We give our appreciation and congratulations to all contestants and supporters of this noteworthy educational event.

Welcome to Ron Echelberry as our 2021 Rotary Club of Aurora President and thankyou to Ben Askren for your "Service Above Self" leadership in a difficult year of 2020!
The Rotary Club of Aurora is honored and proud to be the 2020  recipient of the A.Z. Baker Award. The A.Z. Baker Service Award is a prestigious award given annually to Rotary Clubs in District 6630 that have demonstrated an exceptional level of involvement and commitment to the Rotary goals of service and have exemplified the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self’.  
To encourage a reaching out in total service and the "development of resources" on the part of all clubs in District 6630, the A. Z. Baker Service Awards were established in 1978 at the recommendation of then District Governor James P. Banks, and by action of the District Board of Trustees. This award honors our own "Mr. Rotary," A.Z. Baker, from the Rotary Club of Cleveland who served as Rotary International President in 1955-1956. His dedication and commitment to Rotary truly exemplified SERVICE ABOVE SELF and this award was designed to honor his memory by encouraging all clubs in the district to participate in each of the Five Avenues of Service.
