Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Dumfries Devorgilla
Meetings are held weekly and active members are expected to attend as many meetings as possible (60% as a minimum guideline) unless holiday or unavoidable business or other commitments intervene. Most clubs meet for lunch or dinner and some newly formed clubs meet at breakfast time. Business at meetings often includes a talk on a subject of general interest by an outside speaker. Every Rotarian has the right to attend the meeting of any other club and Rotarians invite non-Rotarian guests to their own club meetings. Weekly meetings promote acquaintance and fellowship. Through this fellowship Rotarians find the inspiration to serve the community.Service to the community requires Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects. This often involves fundraising to provide charities with financial support but this is not a Rotary clubs first aim. The emphasis is on personal service.
