WHAT IS THE ROTARY CLUB OF WILLIAMTOWN?
 
The Rotary Club of Williamtown enables ordinary people to contribute to extraordinary outcomes through providing humanitarian support to local and overseas communities, whilst having fun working together, and being committed to the Rotary Motto:  “Service above Self”.
 
The Rotary Club of Williamtown was formed 16 years ago.  We are part of Rotary International, a worldwide organisation that was formed 106 years ago.
 
The Club members meet at the Williamtown Hall every Wednesday evening for dinner and fellowship.  Many nights we have a guest speaker.  Whilst we do have formal occasions every year, we class ourselves as a “casual” club.
