Rotary Club of Hicksville South
In 2009, a group, largely Indian American, of like-minded friends started the club, drawn by Rotary's diverse, non-political, and non-religious structure. Our club meets alternate Thursdays at 7:00 PM in Hicksville Long Island. Dr. Urmilesh Arya, a successful physician is the President for 2017-2018, and Roopam Maini, Branch Manager of Indus American Bank is the President-Elect.
 
The honorary members of RCHS includes Indian Ambassador Prabhu Dayal, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Comptroller of Nassau County George Maragos.
We are People of Action
The reason Rotarian's believe in their mottoes so strongly is that by 1950, when the mottoes were officially adopted, it was a proven fact that Rotary was… and still is the greatest of all service organizations; - and “SERVICE ABOVE SELF” is the key to Rotary’s indisputable success.  Rotary brings hope wherever it goes and to all who espouse its principles.

Service is our Motto
The Hicksville Rotary Club is a service club, founded on the basic premise of service to others.  Members are expected to give time to the Club and its projects.  The club determines its own service activities, which are channeled through club service, vocational service, community service, and international service.
 
Club Service, the First Avenue of Service, involves action a member should take within this club to help it function successfully. Our members are expected to volunteer for club service projects, support worthy causes, and serve on club committees.  Our success as a Rotarian is directly proportional to our involvement in club activities and regular attendance.
Our Causes
By putting service above self Rotary members set an example that can help inspire those around us today and for the future to come. The Club has participated in several international projects helping the needy in the areas of healthcare, education, water harvesting and disaster relief.
 
 
Locally, RCHS is dedicated to improving lives of  our veterans and families in need. The distribution of School supplies and backpacks, winter blankets and coat drive, providing food for families in need & adult literacy are the year around projects. 1000’s of needy people were served & benefited in last few years on Long Island.
 
 
Our members are actively involved in our local community. We hosts county and town officials, conduct seminars and engages with local fire department, red cross and assist local volunteer organizations. We encourage conversations to foster understanding within and across cultures to support Rotary efforts to promote world peace. In our programs we have introduced family volunteer days and youth leadership and participation.
