WHAT MAKES ROTARY SPECIAL?
Joining a voluntary organisation is a special step for most of us.
1. A group of like minded people with whom we can share fellowship
2. Having Fun
3. Putting something back into the broader Community.
Rotary is more than a pleasant club, which demands little other than turning up to meetings. We are part of a worldwide organisation which allows for each of us to give as little or as much we can, by helping others while enjoying mutual fellowship. Always remember, our motto is 'Service before Self'.
Why ask less? Most of us come from demanding business & professional environments where we recognise the rewards that come from being outward looking. However, we are not looking for an alternative job!
The beauty of Rotary is that it expands our lives rather than taking over. We are able to give of ourselves to others when we can. The days when Rotary was just an adjunct to business, have long passed. Further, when we travel both within the UK & worldwide, we find a ready fraternity of Rotarians with whom we can feel an immediate affinity.
