About The Rotary Club of Plimmerton
Our year runs from 1 July to 30 June, which is a little different. Each 1 July we choose a new President and Board so everyone in the Club has an opportunity to grow by taking a leadership role. You can contact us here to get in touch with any member of the club.
We meet at a beautiful venue. You can find a gallery of photos covering our projects, meetings and other events here and you can find additional photos compiled by one of our members, Graham Craig here.
Associated with, but independent from, Rotary is Inner Wheel. This is the largest women’s voluntary service operating in the world. As with Rotary, they change their President and Board every year. They meet monthly in the Plimmerton Boating Club and welcome new members. Go here to find out more.
What is Rotary?
Rotary is a global network of community volunteers. Rotary club members are local men and women who meet regularly to plan and implement community service activities and network with like-minded people. The main object of Rotary is service – in the community, in the throughout the world.
Our Club was Chartered in 1973 and reached it's 50th Anniversary in 2023. You can find the Highlights from each year between 1973 and 2023 here. Club Highlights by Year from 1973-2023.pdf
