50th Anniversary of the club
History of the club
Welcome to our Rotary club
Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas. These are dedicated people, men and women from business and professions, who share a common interest in helping others.
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has over 55,000 members in 1,855 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation.
Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun!
Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects both locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners with many charities worldwide. Read more about What We Do.
Members organise community projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as violence, drug abuse, health, hunger, the environment, and illiteracy. Rotary clubs determine service projects based on local needs.
They work for and with young people to address challenges facing the youth of today. Interact and Rotaract are also part of the Rotary family, with a similar club structure specifically for young people aged 14-18 and 18-30 respectively.
Members are enthusiastically committed to the drive to wipe out polio from the world. Since Rotary became involved in polio eradication in 1985, the number of reported polio cases has fallen from 350,000 a year to 1,000; 125 endemic countries have been reduced to just 4 - Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan; and two billion children have been protected from the disease.
The Rotary Club of Newtownabbey was formed on the 29th of November 1962.
