It takes a special type of person to be a Rotarian...

... although admittedly having four legs is not usually a requirement.

Still, Eyemouth and District's latest recruit helped get attention at their local Co-op.

Clubs looking to raise their profile can get a set of two outdoor banners and two Rotary wheels as shown at a competitive cost by contacting MPRC chair Archie Ralston. Sadly, it doesn't include the dog.

  Bill Gates congratulates Rotary

Bill Gates' message to Rotarians on what we have achieved in the campaign to eradicate Polio from the world. Rotarians in District 1020 are very active in this campaign, raising a large sum of money towards it, and many have helped as volunteers in mass immunisation days.

He says that "144,000 Rotarians in the region worked tirelessly to secure the political commitment and the money...". That's the difference with Rotary, It's not just fundraising, we're an organisation of influencers and achievers. If that describes you, why not contact your local club? The "Clubs" menu option above will let you find out about the ones in our district, or see below to use the postcode search.
