refine their skills, explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders and share valuable expertise.

Enjoying Rotary

Each month we enjoy an evening of total fellowship, where there is minimal official Rotary
business discussed, or sometimes none at all.Rotary Meeting
Everyone is having a great time, and we are enjoying each others company, which has assisted in bringing a great camaraderie to the club.
This is reflected in the many and varied projects the club undertakes successfully each year.
