President Jenny and the members of The Rotary Club of Springwood extend the hand of worldwide fellowship. Rotary is now in over 200 countries with more than 1.2million members in 34,000 clubs worldwide.

Membership of a Rotary Club is by invitation on the basis of one representative of each recognised business and profession, being a person working or living in the geographic area from which the club draws members.

Our Club serves the towns of Springwood, Winmalee, Faulconbridge, Linden, Valley Heights and Warrimoo

 

It is not necessary for a person to be a business owner to be a Rotarian. employees in authority positions, can also be members. The Rotary classification system is designed to ensure that a club contains a cross section of the community’s interests, vocations and activities. In this way, each member of the club is looked up to as a representative of their own business, profession or industry.

 Women are the fastest growing segment of Rotary’s membership - they were first admitted into Rotary on 1987. There are currently more than 1.900 women club presidents

 

We are a friendly club and we always welcome new members. Visiting Rotarians are especially welcome at our meetings
 

The Rotary Club of Springwood Inc. meets on Monday evenings and is non political, non religious and open to all cultures.

Come and join in the fellowship and speak to our members. Discover yourself. Discover the wonderful world of Rotary.

Another great success.....

 

Our visitors came along and listened to our young musicians from the Blue Mountains schools, who were so captivating and so, so talented. 

The audience was able to wander around the grounds whilst being enthralled by the changing colours of the Autumn season and the musical delights of our young musicians.
