Visiting Rotarians  

Rotary Club of Kent Town
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders. Clubs are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Richly rewarding, Rotary gives you the opportunity to pay it forward and to have a positive impact wherever you choose

Getting Involved
While developing business networking opportunities and building life long friendships Rotarians experience personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.

The magic of Rotary is that it allows ordinary people to achieve the most extraordinary things. By using the powerful synergy of one, people unite to achieve exceptional change. Many ordinary members of Rotary have developed projects that have brought significant change whilst experiencing personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.
