There are two traditional Rotary Clubs in St Albans who welcome Associates and friends and volunteers who would like to assist the local Community.
When Rotary first started in St. Albans the founding club was called simply –
The Rotary Club of St. Albans.
It first met and has continued to meet at lunchtimes and attracted local businessmen and professionals.
The Rotary Club of St Albans Verulamium
St Albans is a commuter town and many prospective Rotarians wanted to give service to the City of St Albans, but attending a lunchtime meeting was just not possible. So our club, St Albans Verulamium was formed in 1976 to meet in the evenings. To distinguish ourselves from the "Mother" club we added "Verulamium" to our name.
The two traditional clubs do some things individually and some together and some with other local clubs. Together, Rotary in St Albans organise the St Albans Rotary Cycle Ride, the Swimathon and a number of youth activities including the Rotary Technology Tournament for secondary school children.
A new group of younger professionals and business people who want to do things their way and create a new paradigm following the Rotary simplistic model of - SERVICE ABOVE SELF contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Essentially an E Club drawing members from a wider geographical area with members who wish to serve the community can join. It will be project based and members will come together to plan and execute their ideas. Hertswood@gmail.com
In essence, belonging to a Rotary club is an enjoyable and organised way to make a contribution to one's own community. There is a club for you in St Albans each with its own character. If you are interested you could visit them all.
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.
