This is our Rotary Club. We meet weekly at Woollams, the OA Rugby Club on Harpenden Road on Tuesday evenings. Meetings, which include a two course meal and a speaker, or some other activity, start at 7 30 pm and finish around 10 pm.
Rotary is a global organisation of business and professional people who provide help for less fortunate people of all ages throughout the world.
Rotary is non-political and is open to men and women, whatever their race, colour or creed, who want to make the world a better place.
Our club offers opportunities for our members and those interested in making a difference to get involved. Through meetings, social events, and volunteer projects, our members learn about the issues facing our community and wider communities all over the world, partnering with local, national, and global experts to exchange ideas about potential solutions and to draw up action plans to respond. Along with these opportunities to serve, members also can regularly network, resulting in lifelong friendships and business connections.
Rotarians meet regularly over a meal to plan events, listen to speakers on various topics and report on activities.
Our motto is "Service above self" and we are always pleased to welcome like-minded people.
If you are keen to get involved why not come along to a meeting? We would be delighted to meet you and you will be made very welcome. Please Visit Us.
We organise ourselves through various committees:
Bringing all of these activities together is an enjoyable and fulfilling pursuit.
Rotary is a non- religious, non-political organisation. Yet it is very clear about its ideals which it applies to all of its activities.
These are expressed in the FOUR WAY TEST.
We also promote ‘The Objects of Rotary’:
Rotary Foundation is Rotary’s own charity which Rotarians voluntarily support and contribute to. Over the last 100 years it has contributed over $3 billion to humanitarian programmes around the world.
A major focus is the eradication of polio. With help from the Bill Gates Foundation it has provided vaccinations in many countries across the globe. The incidence of Polio has been decreased to just a handful of cases each year in three countries. Progress will continue until there are none.
We take action locally and globally. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.
