We’re a diverse group of people from the Beaufort Street community and beyond, who want to create “Positive Change through Collective Action!"
Meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month over finger food, we hear from inspiring speakers, exchange ideas and connect with like-minded people. We’ve already been hands-on, collecting and packing toiletries for Starting Over Support and crafting and filling Xmas stockings for refugee children at Carad.
Rotary is an 110-year-old organisation and we put a progressive, forward-thinking, “2019" spin on it with our new club! Although our members so far vary in age, gender and ethnicity, we share the same principles and want to contribute our skills and time to projects and causes that excite us. We operate as a democracy – All opinions and ideas are welcome and are valued equally.
Our goal is to get stuff done…. But also have fun! Join us at a meeting – Check out our Events Calendar for upcoming dates.
