Welcome from the President

 

Rotary links people from all backgrounds locally, nationally and internationally to make meaningful contributions to communities.

Our club is currently working on a number of projects combining with other local clubs to minimise the impact of feral deer on street trees and native bushland in our community and we are continuing to help the Nausori Village in Fiji rebuild after the devastation caused in February 2016.

We provide opportunities for young people in our area to participate in Rotary personal development opportunities, including the acclaimed international youth exchange programme.

We support other groups in our community such as Giving Grannies by helping new parents with baby essentials, and Pushing Barriers who help youth from a refugee background through participation in sport.

Each year we have our signature community Fun Run held in May raising funds for groups supporting families impacted by Cancer and also provides funds to groups providing nutritious meals to people experiencing hard times.

Most importantly we are about having fun, making great connections with other community minded people locally, nationally & internationally. Rotary needs people like you to make a difference by volunteering to assist in whatever way you can.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, a professional, a stay at home parent, a teacher, a doctor, a tradie or an office worker. We need young and old, retailers, gardeners, athletes, social workers, artists, grandparents and retirees too. If you have something you care about, and want to make a difference in your community, we need you!

We’re happy to take any help you can give! For some people that means occasionally turning a sausage at a fundraising BBQ, but for others that means planning major projects or travelling overseas to participate in humanitarian aid programs.

Rotary has something for everyone. Please get in touch and find out more. Getting involved with Rotary could be the best thing you ever do!
