Welcome to the Rotary Club of St Andrews Kilrymont. I hope you enjoy browsing through the various pages of our website and that you learn something about the way our Club operates and 'what makes us tick'.
We are a young Club, having been inaugurated only 19 years ago. We have approximately 30 members, all of whom are actively involved in some aspect of the Club. Our membership includes a broad cross-section of the community and spans a range of backgrounds, interests and occupations.
The Four-Way Test is the foundation for all we do in the Club and 'Service Above Self' is our constant goal. We have various service initiatives taking place throughout the year as we follow the Rotary International theme Rotary Serving Humanity, both in the local community and internationally. These initiatives offer opportunities to members to become involved and contribute their time, talent and leadership skills - the best way to be a Rotarian. Currently Rotary's most ambitious 'Service to Humanity' is by working with the Gates Foundation for the eradication of Polio ...and we are almost there. Last year our Club was able to donate £1400 to the project and this year we aim to increase that figure.
Our focus in the Club this year continues to be on Literacy and Education and the International Projects we support reflect this, including the 'Adopt a Learner' project which helps young children in Capetown with their education. Local youth projects are also a priority and these include support for young carers, young writers, young leaders, local primary schools and young sports men and women.
However Rotary is not just about fundraising; fellowship is as important and has been from the beginning. The first Rotary Club was founded in 1905 in Chicago as somewhere that professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.
We meet in the Scores Hotel, St Andrews every Tuesday, 6:45 for 7:00pm. It would be great if you could join us.
