Interested in Joining Rotary?
Perhaps the first question you should contemplate is “Why?”   
And secondly “What do you want to get from being a member?”
If you explore our website, and Facebook page you can get a feel for the sort of things we do.
If that resonates with you and you want to know more, we would be delighted to tell you more.  
If you then want to try us out, we would invite you to a series of meetings and activities on a no-commitment basis. After a couple of months, we will chat with you on how Rotary fits with your lifestyle, family, and work commitments and then what form of membership works best for you.
Contact us and we would be happy to answer your questions and tell you more.
Our motto, ‘SERVICE ABOVE SELF’, embodies our humanitarian spirit
If you join us, we would help grow your skills and talents to make the world a better place through our 5 Avenues of Service:

  • Through Club Service, we have fun, build lasting friendships, and make sure that our club runs well and members are engaged.
  • Through Vocational Service, we volunteer our professional skills to serve others and promote integrity in everything we do.

  • Through Community Service, we address local needs and work with our community to bring lasting improvements.

  • Through International Service, we meet humanitarian needs around the globe and promote world understanding and peace.

  • Through Youth Service, we work with young people to help them become the next generation of leaders, visionaries, and peacemakers.
