On Wednesday November 15 the club celebrated its 70th year of serving the local, national and international communities. Held in the Grovesnor Hotel, which was the same venue of the clubs first meeting in 1947, with about 80 past, present Rotarians and special guests the night was a truly rememberable night with a message from the President of Rotary Internaitonal and a video of the first meeting held in 1947. We reconised our members who have been in the club over 25 years, inducted a new member and presented a Paul Harris Fellow to past member Romaine Dawson.
The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor membership, are a group of like-minded men and women whom have gathered together under the banner of Rotary International to tirelessly support the community. In conjunction with the tasks and ventures pursued, the great enjoyment of fellowship is experienced by all concerned, with many great life-long friendships created.
Rotarians are members of a Rotary Club whom serve the community and most importantly enjoy the experience and the fellowship and interaction of the other members of their local and world-wide organization.
The many varied life time experiences and great personalities brought together, ensures a broad coverage of community projects can be supported, and then progressed.
Rotary as an organization over the past years has also had its challenges, and it is great to see that as an organization, we are growing with the times and attracting new younger enthusiastic Rotarians which is fantastic, and with their input, experience the new ideas brought forward.
The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor as a community focused group, over the many years, have been extremely active in the Fleurieu district and been very successful.
