Fellowship is one of the main reasons that Rotary came together at the beginning of last century. 

Although Rotary was deeply entrenched within the business community, the premise of Fellowship was an integral part of why people found Rotary an important part of their networking requirements within a business environment.


Today Fellowship continues to be an important part of why we all choose to be Rotarians.  Whether it is the networking requirements for our business world or to be connected to like minded people, Fellowship remains part of how we conduct our lives.  Rotary with its broad appeal to so many people across the world has developed into a body of people who through their Fellowship and Good Will 'Serve to Change Lives' in a true and real sense.

In these troubled times where the world has become less stable, the depth of  understanding that Rotarians, because of the trust that they have developed through Fellowship, are able to support so many humanitarian projects both in Australia and overseas. 


Our own Club has a history of great Fellowship where new members are welcomed from all walks of life and the collective Fellowship of the Club embraces them so they integrate quickly into our Rotary community.  As times have changed significantly over the past few years the need for Fellowship is valued a great deal more due to the fact that so many people have been isolated and often loneliness has been experienced.  Our Rotary Club has worked very hard to 'keep an eye' on members through Fellowship to make sure that our duty of care is of the highest standard.

We have a wonderful Club with a great culture of inclusiveness that has been harnessed through the Fellowship we offer each other through meeting on Tuesday lunchtimes, supporting local and overseas projects, enjoying vocational and social events and supporting our fundraising activities.
