We are an active Club formed in 2002 and serving Dumfries and it's immediate environs. Our commitment to protecting our environment has recently included environmental projects in our service secton to raise awarness to plastic waste and non-biodegrable materials on our shorelines. We also have a succesful track record of fundraising and community events including Santas Grotto, Solway Sportive and Run4Health.
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.
