Friends of Rotary

We would welcome the opportunity to share our fellowship and community service with like-minded people who for the time being are unable to offer the time and commitment required of members.

Becoming a Friend of Rotary allows you to share our ideals and objectives without the responsibility or commitment required from a full member. But it does allow you to be part of a Rotary club to contribute to the community and to assist in club projects and events when you are available to do so.

Being a Friend of Rotary allows you to participate in fundraising events and projects.  However, some activities are not specifically designed to raise funds. They can be to assist in a hands-on working way, or they can be just to socialise. Rotarians call this fellowship. It is an opportunity to enjoy activities and each other's company, catch up with old friends and make or develop new ones.

Benefits of Friends of Rotary

  • Supporting Rotary service projects that help local or international communities.
  • A way for those who cannot make Rotary meetings to feel involved in the effort to assist their community.
  • It can be a stepping stone for someone who wants to help the community but does not know a lot about Rotary.
  • You have an open invitation to come along to any of our Rotary meetings
  • You have access to our Rotary Facebook to connect with other like-minded people
  • It can lead to full-time Rotary membership if desired.

If you'd like to be part of the community, read our online guide and complete the application form here: Friends of Rotary Application Form
