What is Rotary? Briefly it is a world fellowship of business and professional men and women, united in the ideal of service. It has more than 27,000 clubs with a membership of well over one million, in more than 152 countries. The spirit and ideal of Rotary which has attracted so many men and women of different races, faiths and cultures is to encourage the development of acquaintances as an opportunity for service. It encourages high ethical standards in business and community life, and the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace.
Our Club has been glad to support the local community and overseas communities in need, for seventy years and hopes to continue to do so for the next seventy years and more.
