The power of Rotary Globally


Rotary is much bigger than just the Dunfermline Rotary Club. If you decide to join, then you will be joining part of a global organisation that makes a substantial difference to the world. There are over 33,000 rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

Rotarians are

·       Community builders

·       Problem solvers

·       Opportunity creators

·       People of action

But above all, we make a difference both locally and internationally.


Our meetings

We meet regularly on Thursday evenings at 6.45 for 7pm at Garvock House Hotel, St John’s Drive, Dunfermline. A typical meeting involves a one course meal with coffee followed by reports on Club activities and events. We often have a speaker but sometimes the meeting is just taken up with conversation between members.
