This year the Rotary Club of Blackwood celebrates 50 years.
The inaugural meeting of the Club was held at the RSL Club on Tuesday 18th August 1970
Our Charter certificate with the seal of Rotary International affixed is dated 14th September 1970.
The Rotary motto on this certificate is “Service above Self, He profits most who Serves Best”
The Service above Self motto was chosen because it best conveys the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.
Charter night, 17th November 1970 took place at the Tonsley Hotel, Clovelly Park.
