Rotary Victor Harbor President – Julie Irwin, at the Changeover Dinner held at Hotel Crown, Victor Harbor – Wednesday 29 July 2020

Join Rotary and the more than 1.2 million members who are actively changing lives locally and internationally. Just our club alone has a long history of serving the community here in Victor Harbor, South Australia which goes back to the club’s inauguration in 1947.

Today we are proud to have 58 active members. A good mix of men and women, young and old who all bring a wide variety of talents with them. This enables us to work successfully to complete many diverse projects, events and activities throughout the year.

Take a look through this website and read about the projects our members are involved with and if any interest you then why not come along to a meeting and see if Rotary could be part of your life too.

Club Members

The heart of our club is our members, dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Rotary members share ideas, make plans, hear from the community, and catch up with friends during club meetings that fuel the impact we make.

The Rotary year runs from July 2020 to June 2021 and each new year brings a new club president and he or she then elects the club board members whose job it is to help the president during their year of office. The structure of Rotary also includes Committees which work on projects and fundraising activities throughout the year. Raised funds are given to worthy causes both locally, nationally and overseas.
