About Rockingham Rotary Club
The Rockingham Rotary Club is a small but proactive group of members who are all fun and inclusive. Our members range in age from middle 20’s to 70’s but we’re all mentally around 40 and every one of us has a positive and happy disposition.
We meet Monday nights for dinner and drinks at the Rockingham RSL Club, Memorial Drive Point Peron. We arrive at around 6pm for a 6.30 start and it usually finishes between 8.00 and 8.30pm
ROTARY HAS CHANGED…
It is no longer a rule of Rotary that you attend all meetings. We offer a varied program of guest speakers and events throughout the year. We hope that you find them interesting and will want to attend, however family and business must come first.
Fellowship and friendship is the goal and the mission is Service Above Self.
Why not join us for dinner one night, the meal is on us, bring your partner we’ll pay for both of you, in fact come twice on us, then you can decide if we suit you and you suit our club. Call Trevor on 0491 091 573 to book in to attend a meeting.
As a member you will sit on one of the following committees, these meetings are held once a month on the Monday night of a standard meeting, so there is no extra time taken out of your schedule. These meetings are where we decide how and who to GIVE BACK TO.

RI President's Ian Risley’s February 2018 Message to his Fellow Rotarian's
One hundred thirteen years ago this month, the four members of Rotary’s first club held their first meeting. Although no minutes were kept, it’s unlikely anyone talked about service; the club did not begin focusing on the needs of the community for another few years.
The meeting was held not in a hotel or a restaurant, but in a member’s office; there were, so far as we know, no agendas or announcements, no committee reports, speakers, or nametags. The meeting would have failed today’s usual standards for a productive Rotary meeting most resoundingly. It was, of course, the most productive Rotary meeting ever held.
Today, as in 1905, many of us come to Rotary seeking what Paul Harris sought: friendship, connections, a place to feel at home. But today, Rotary gives us so much more than it could ever have given its earliest members in those earliest days.
The Rotary of today, more than 1.2 million members strong, lets us feel at home not only in a small group of our peers, but also in our diverse clubs, across our communities, and indeed throughout the world.
Today, Rotary connects us all in a way that Paul Harris could never have dreamed on that February evening so long ago. Not only can we go anywhere in the world there is a Rotary club and feel at home, but we can reach out to anywhere in the world there is a Rotary club and make a difference.
In the 113 years since that first meeting, Rotary has become far larger, and more diverse, than those founding members could have conceived. We have gone from an organization that was all white and all male to one that welcomes women and men of every possible background. We have become an organization whose stated purpose is service, reflected in our motto, Service Above Self. And we have become not only an organization that is capable of changing the world, but one that has already done so, through our work to eradicate polio.
None of us can know what lies ahead for Rotary. It remains for all of us to continue to build on the solid foundations that were laid for us by Paul Harris and his friends: to forge and strengthen the bonds of service and friendship through Rotary: Making a Difference.
