President Roger Long welcomes you to the web-site of the
Rotary Club of Oxford Isis
look forward to our Rotary year of 'Making a Difference'
we do so
off the back of some pretty impressive fundraising in our previous year.
Our thanks and
congratulation must first go to our retiring President,Alicia who with fellow
Isis members delivered such a successful Rotary Year.
Our support for SeeSaw and The African Children's Fund showed our commitment to both home and International works. In the coming Rotary Year we shall again support The African Children's Fund and our home based charity this year will be The Footsteps Foundation.
Rotary International(RI) has thrown down the gauntlet of attracting more members and increasing the numbers of women and younger members. As a club we will accept this challenge.
We also intend to take part in the RI
programmes of tree planting to help our
environment and crocus planting as part of the campaign to
defeat Polio(More detail on the Foundation page).
As a club we put together a varied program each year and welcome visitors to any of our meetings and especially where there is a 5th Thursday in the month. On these evenings we try and put on special speakers to make the meeting especially attractive to visitors; so please do come and bring a friend.
On the social side we arrange the odd quiz, outings and visits, including a week-end away to enjoy different parts of the country this year The New Forest.
Plenty of detail on all our activities can be found witin this website....
