Our History

On June 27th, 2003, the Rotary Club of Paranaque Midtown achieved history when it was chartered with Charter President Jay Hilario as the third charter president in the Hilario family after his parents, CP Lina Hilario of RC Paranaque Metro, and CP Benny Hilario of RC Paranaque Metro South.

Envisioned as a "next generation Rotary club," RC Paranaque Midtown's charter membership was composed of children of Rotarians, former Rotaractors, and their friends. For several years after it was founded, the Club was consistently District 3830's youngest Rotary Club in terms of average age. Despite this, the members strove to overcome the challenges of youth by conducting small yet impactful projects in the community. Throughout the 18 years of its existence, RC Paranaque Midtown has continually recruited younger members to maintain its dynamism, since it believes that age should never be a hindrance to true service.

Avenues of Service

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.

  • Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. Learn more in An Introduction to Vocational Service and the Code of Conduct.
  • Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. Learn more in Communities in Action: A Guide to Effective Projects.
  • International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
  • Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.

Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
