President's Message
 
Being part of Rotary is being part of a global community.
 
With a network of over 35 000 clubs in 200 countries, Rotarians, together, continue to actively serve their local communities and beyond, in fighting diseases, supporting mothers and children, improving sanitation and promoting peace and education.
 
In our club, we are a tight knit team of volunteers, working hand in hand with the local community to raise funds, support charities and serve those most in need.   
 
We hold our doors wide open to all those who are looking for a warm and congenial community and are interested in volunteering opportunities. Our weekly meeting is a great place to make new friends, meet old ones, share ideas and catch up on the local news.
