Here's why we joined
David Forbes - President
" I was introduced to Rotary 20 years ago when I lived and worked in Banchory, Scotland. I was invited to join and I was keen to be able to put something back into the town that had supported me in business since 1972. I enjoyed the fellowship and the great sense of achievement in belonging to Rotary.
When I moved to Monmouth some 7 years ago, I joined the Monmouth club. It is a very active club and all members in the club participate to some extent in our events which we can proudly say raises an amazing amount of money each year for both local and international charities.
I am immensely proud to be President of the Rotary Club of Monmouth this year and although we are very successful we are always keen to welcome new members of both genders to our club."
" I joined Rotary 24 years ago partly to Business network as well as to take part in activities that were fun and would benefit others in the community.
Have enjoyed using my skills to continue putting something back in society and, now it is a smaller area, have made no end of contacts and friends in all walks of life, as has my wife.
Regular contact with fellow members pursuing like minded activities has generated great banter and considerable satisfaction from helping others "
" I was introduced to Rotary by a friend 7 years ago. Initially I attended a number of weekly meetings to see what it was all about. I was already enjoying assisting with several voluntary organisations, but soon realised that Rotary offered additional opportunities to help those less fortunate than myself.
Monmouth is a mixed gender club. I was welcomed as a member and very much appreciated the informality of Club and the opportunity to get involved in fund raising projects. Thereís a friendly team working atmosphere, with every member contributing as little or as much as they wish, through their own strengths and skills. As a group, we achieve an incredible amount. Itís hugely satisfying.
And Iíve made a lot of new friends in and around Monmouth through Rotary "
" I joined Rotary 5 years ago because I wanted to put something back; to meet new people in the Monmouth area; have an interest other than home and work and because Joanna told me I was becoming a BOF.
What I get out of Rotary is the fellowship of club members, satisfaction from working in a team, raising money for worthwhile causes and realisation that there are always more opportunities to help others."
" I joined Rotary 30 years ago when I had my own firm of Chartered Quantity Surveyors in London. All the meetings that I went to were inhabited by other surveyors and the discussion was always work orientated. I was looking for wider horizons and to get to know people from other occupations. It worked incredibly well, hence my continued involvement when we moved to Monmouth
I have always looked on being a Rotarian as a small way of putting something back into the community as well as gaining a wide circle of friends and enjoying the many activities that Monmouth Rotary Club promote either for pleasure or to help our various charities that we support ( which is also always a pleasure anyway) "
