Our Community Activities
The Community & Vocational Committee meets on a regularly basis to decide how to support our local Community Charities and those who are less fortunate as ourselves.
Rotary changes lives with countless humanitarian projects locally and globally, from helping the homeless to eradicating polio. In the process, members of Rotary find their lives are changed too. Start your Rotary journey at https://www.rotarygbi.org/enquire/
