Rushmoor Rotary Club – Public website – All about us page

This is a page they have put on their website which gives people a flavour of their club and an idea of their character.  The membership committee have suggested we do something similar.

More information for those interested to join us.

The Rotary Club of Rushmoor has over 40 members (men and women) who normally meet each Wednesday evening commencing at 7:30 with a meal at 8pm.
The Club was  founded in 1985 to cater for people in the locality who were unable to meet at the, then traditional, lunchtime meetings. Since that time, the Club has established its own informal style and whilst focusing on helping both the local and international community, the members enjoy themselves through a variety of social activities.

Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds (business, professional, community, tradesmen etc.) and use their personal and vocational skills in the various projects that the Club undertakes.
