Our members are driven by the Rotary motto, "Service above Self"
What does this mean?
It can be summarised as utilising your time and business skills to contribute to the community at all levels: locally, regionally, nationally and even at an international level.  Consider for a moment the many local parks and community precincts, where you may have seen signs with the message, "Proudly built by Rotary Club of ...."
Reflect on the many international projects that Rotary has achieved, such as, working on the worldwide eradication of polio, facilitating care for sick and needy children, research into medical trials, assisting the socially disadvantaged, fresh water and shelter for disaster areas, just to name a few. Our signature fundraising event is the GC100, a charity cycle event held annually in September.
