Our meetings are held at the Edenbank Hotel, Dumfries and involve a range of club visits, interesting speakers and good fellowship as well as online meetings via Zoom when required. Check our calender for forthcoming meetings.

Service to the community requires our Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects. This often involves fundraising to provide charities with financial support but this is not our Clubs first aim. Our emphasis is on personal service.

Recent club news:  This is our Club's 20th Anniversary year having Chartered on 29 September 2022.
