We are an active and young Club formed in 2002 and serving Dumfries and and it's immediate environs with a succesful record of fundraising and community events including Santas Grotto, Solway Sportive and Run4Health. More information on our events can be found on:
Our meetings are held weekly in the evenings on a Monday night at the Station Hotel, Dumfries and involve a range of club visits, interesting speakers and good fellowship. Check our calender for forthcoming meetings.
Service to the community requires our Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects. This often involves fundraising to provide charities with financial support but this is not our Clubs first aim. Our emphasis is on personal service.
Recent club news: Santa's Grotto is approaching and we will once again be working in partnership with Gardenwise Dumfries to provide a Santa's Grotto during December. Look out for further details on Facebook.
