Rotary Club of Norwich St. Edmund
Home | Message from a fairly new member
Why did I join Rotary?
I had heard of Rotary but decided to find out more by looking on the internet. I was impressed when I read about the international Rotarian developments and money raised for causes such as the eradication of Polio in addition to the local and national charities supported.
How did I select my Club?
I had to ensure that the weekly meetings were in the evening as I work full-time. In addition, I wanted to find a Club that had like minded members and it was a proactive and friendly club. When I went along to the first meeting I was made very welcome and I quickly realised that the principle of fellowship was embedded in all members of the club. Caroline (President at the time) and Barry (Club Secretary) explained the commitment for being a Rotarian which fitted in easily with my family and social life.
What does fellowship mean?
In my Club members have different skills and interests and it is great to share ideas and work together. At our Club meetings there are presentations on a range of subjects, there are discussions on fund raising activities and there are exchanges with clubs in France and Germany. When you are a Rotarian member you can visit any club in the world as a guest.
Why not have fun raising money for charity?
For me being a member of Norwich St Edmund Rotary Club is about having fun while raising money for charities and giving back to the local community. In addition being a member of a professional international organisation that makes a real difference to lives across the world has a positive impact on my outlook on life. If you don't explore the opportunity of what being a Rotarian has to offer then you will not know what you are missing.
Why not today find out more?
