About WE-GO

'WE-GO' was adopted as an acronym to reflect the lengths to which members of the Westtown-Goshen Rotary Club of Pennsylvania, USA go...

WE-GO Background

A SERVICE CLUB WITH AN EMPHASIS ON SERVICE


WE-GO is chartered by Rotary International.

We love making the world a better place to live, work and play.

We call ourselves "WE-GO" an appropriate name since the members of The Rotary Club of Westtown-Goshen go to great lengths to provide a multitude of services to our community, our nation and the world. WE-GO has become known as "one of the most energetic service clubs in our area," as noted by George Bury in the Daily Local News. From its beginning in 1975, WE-GO has prided itself in being an every-member-participates club. From the moment a new member becomes a WE-GO Rotarian, he or she immediately becomes an active participant in the club's many service opportunities.  

DISTRICT 7450 PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA USA


WE-GO is an active club in Rotary District 7450, USA.

Encouraging and Fostering the Ideal of Service.

WE-GO combines the talents and expertise of our members and partners - and guides projects that make a difference in the world.  Our club is part of District 7450, USA - located in Southeastern, Pennsylvania.  In membership, Rotarians commit to living by the 4-way-test in work and life.  We advocate for ethical standards of behavior built upon mutual respect and integrity in everything we think, say and do. We work toward peace and conflict resolution - in a globally competitive world, recognizing the need to balance self-interests with what economically motivates people to aspire to do great things.  Those that serve others receive the greatest rewards.  Come join a unique organization and be apart of something that helps you help others by standing out in the crowd. WE-GO is not for everyone.  We are a selective bunch, giving meaning to membership and the benefits of your contributions.

WE-GO WEEKLY MEETINGS AND PROGRAMS


WE-GO meets every Thursday at 6:00 p.m.

Innovative Programs

WE-GO meets at 6:00 p.m. every Thursday at the Day's Hotel on U. S. 202 just south of West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA.  A wide variety of interesting and innovative programs give WE-GO members insight into important local, regional, national and international activities. WE-GO is not a social club where members gather once a week to enjoy "a night out." While fun and fellowship are distinguishing characteristics of our Rotary Club, members are primarily united by the multitude of opportunities for service to the community, the nation, and the world. We enjoy working together in the spirit of service stimulated by weekly programs and discussion groups. By combining our individual efforts, we are able to multiply our effectiveness. There is a special discipline which makes Rotary different from other organizations. WE-GO has no paid staff to "run things." Members do all of the planning, organizing and execution of service projects, as well as handling all management of the club itself. Nobody takes a back seat while someone else does all of the driving.

WE-GO MEETINGS STIMULATE DISCUSSIONS, IDEAS AND ACTION.

Meet Other Like Minded People

Interested in attending a meeting?  Be our guest at one of our upcoming programs and meet the Rotarians in our club.  If you don't have the time for a Thursday dinner meeting or can't commit to in-person meetings, don't sweat it.  We know your time is valuable.  And, not having the time to attend our regular weekly in-person meeting should not stop you from learning about Rotary and committing to the ideals of service in your vocation and in life.  We can all work together.  In the process, we learn respect, gain new understandings, meet wonderful people, challenge our assumptions, gain new insights and find ways to help make this a better world.

WE-GO IS LIKE A SECOND FAMILY

Fellowship is the Glue that binds us together in service.

The "glue" which helps hold WE-GO together is the fellowship and camaraderie of its members. Living in a community with many different neighborhoods but without a central business district, members often have little regular contact with other service-minded individuals. The weekly WE-GO meetings help to develop strong relationships. For many, WE-GO is like a second family and we enjoy sharing our personal lives as well as our business lives with one another.  WE-GO members work and live in the Greater West Chester region.  And, they give back to that community donating money, services and time.
