All meetings and scheduled events are now being held online and communication will be by phone or e-mail.
Rotarians are men and women who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of people from the community that the club serves. As a member of a Rotary club, you have the opportunity to give something back, to give hope to those less fortunate and to make lives worthwhile and fulfilled.
Like most Rotary Clubs, we meet once a week. For further details about our meeting venue, Royal Wells Hotel: However, currently we are meeting online until further notice.
