WELCOME to the World of Rotary - Giving Service to the Community
OUR MEETINGS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
WE are not a secret society. To dispel the myth - we are not a group of men - our club is composed of almost an equal number of men and women. We welcome guests to our club - all you have to do is drop us an email or telephone our secretary.details
Mirfield Rotary Club has participated in this scheme for a number of years currently distributing over 1400 boxes per year to Eastern Europe.details
Welcome to The Rotary Club of Mirfield
As President of the Rotary Club of Mirfield this year I am looking forward to all our project and activities. As a lively and fun club we like to get involved and support many events in the local Mirfield area.
This year we will be at the Round Table Beer Festival in July and the firework display in November. We are also supporting Mirfiled in Bloom, The Arts Festival and the Mirfield Show.
Once again we will be encouraging local young people by providing opportunities to take part in Rotary Young Leaders Activities (RYLA) and the Rotary Youth Development Under Sail (RYDUS) with the Ocean Youth Trust North. Local schools will be invited to participate in our Youth Chef competition and the Rotary Technology Tournament.
I am thrilled this year as a Rotarian to have the great opportunity to take part in the Tall Ships race in the Netherlands on board the James Cook sail training vessel. As a Rotary Mentor on board I will be supporting 15 young people who have signed up for this great adventure. I am sure it will be a great adventure for me too.
There are far too many activities and club projects this year for me to mention individually, so if you would like to know more check out our website or facebook pages for our upcoming events and meetings. There is always something going on to get involved with. Or why not come along to one of our meetings - you will be made most welcome - you can then talk to us and find out more.
