About Us

President Lynn Hastings

Narooma Rotary Club Inc. is a not-for-profit community organisation dedicated to serving and supporting both the local Narooma as well as the wider global community. We are an incorporated association.

Narooma Rotary is a dynamic club committed to expanding members’ opportunities for service, personal growth and enjoyment. Through our shared commitment to service, members are  engaged in Rotary programs and activities that achieve worthwhile outcomes locally, nationally and globally. These have produced benefits to individuals, organisations and even whole communities. We have seen that when we engage Rotary, we can change lives and the extraordinary success of our End Polio Now campaign shows what can be achieved when people work cooperatively together.

We are members of an international family of 1.2 Million Rotarians, each of whom is guided by the Rotary Four Way Test.

The Rotary Four Way Test plus 1

Of the things we think, say and do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? and an extra one for good measure
  5. Will it be BENEFICIAL to the environment?

Below is a four minute video by Rotary International that explains a lot about our organisation.
