About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Monifieth & District

 

Rotarians are well aware that a lot of folk still think they are a collection of stuffed-shirt business types who have a meal together once a week and raise some cash for charity.

The members of the Rotary Club of Monifieth and District are very keen to let everyone know that that image is far from accurate.  Yes, they do meet for a meal once a week, and yes, they do raise cash for charity but there is a great deal more to the club, and to Rotary worldwide. 

 Monifieth Rotarians play their part in supporting such huge global efforts.but they are just as keen to help a local youth club, donate the High Street clock, sponsor Monifieth High School pupils in youth leadership courses, run quizzes for local primary schools, conduct mock interviews for senior school pupils, offer free stroke awareness blood pressure tests, help in the regular Monifieth beach clean-ups and even provide and serve mulled wine to help the local Christmas tree lights switch-on go with a swing.

Fundraising has to play a part, and Monifieth Rotarians try to enjoy themselves while doing just that.   You may see Rotarians in their distinctive yellow Rotary tabards collecting at Tesco or Dobbies, running their annual plant sale in the High Street, operating a charity shop, or hosting a team quiz night.

Their biggest annual fundraiser is their team golf event which has been held in September for many years now.  In September this year, the club was privileged to run this event for the first time over the Championship Links at Monifieth.  A huge amount of planning, organising and sheer hard work goes into this tournament which attracts sponsorship from many local firms and organisations and draws teams from many parts of Scotland.

This year again over £6000 was raised thanks to the generosity of sponsors, donors, entrants and not least people who bought raffle tickets.  Over the years, large sums have gone from this event to charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support, and the Scottish-based Halo Trust which carries out mine clearance in strife-torn areas of the world.  The principal beneficiary this year will be Angus Young Carers, which supports children and young people under 18 who help to look after or support a member of their family due to illness, disability or social problems.  Other charities local, national and international will also benefit.

The causes for which Monifieth Rotarians work are serious - often matters of life and death in disaster-struck areas.  However, since its foundation in 1983 the club has ensured that it provides great companionship and fun while achieving its serious targets.

The club is fortunate to have a range of ages among its membership.   Apart from its weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings in the Grange Golf Club, at which a wide variety of speakers educate and entertain members, the club also has a programme of social activities and fun events to which partners and outside guests may be invited, a formal dance, a barbecue and even a not-too-serious putting competition.   One classic event is the annual Burns Supper at which most if not all of the talent on display is home-grown.

Of course Rotary, being a giant world-wide organisation more than 100 years old, has to have regulations and guidelines.   Monifieth Rotarians have found the secret of abiding by these rules but also enjoying themselves and fostering a great and rewarding club spirit.  No stuffed shirts here!
