On Saturday 23 May, Engadine Rotary will celebrate its 47th birthday having been charted in 1973. For more about our history go to https://engadinerotary.org.au/sitepage/about-engadine-rotary-1
 
Throughout those years, Rotary has undergone considerable change in step with changing times and recessions . Even today with the Covid Virus and its restrictions on meetings, the Club  has had to move to video conferencing capability using  Zoom. This has enabled club members to have face to face communications remotely and continue with its business of Serving our Community.  See  recent donation of mobile scooter at https://engadinerotary.org.au/Stories/engadine-rotary-helps-out-a-very-deserving-engadine-couple 
 
Over these years, Our mission  has not varied and continues to embrace the ideals of Rotary International, contributing to a better Engadine District and a better world through significant service while providing extraordinary opportunities for networking, fellowship, friendship and personal growth.
 
To see some of our achievements read on
