We are an active and young Club formed in 2002 and serving Dumfries and and it's immediate environs with a succesful record of fundraising and community events including Santas Grotto, Solway Sportive and Run4Health. More information on our events can be found on:
Our meetings are held weekly in the evenings on a Monday night at the Edenbank Hotel, Dumfries and involve a range of club visits, interesting speakers and good fellowship. 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: 2020 Solway Sportive. We are unable to run this event on the 31 May as scheduled however instead of cancelling the event we are hoping to reschedule it for some time in September. We will be in touch as soon as we have a date.
