Introducing Frankston North Rotary
Frankston North Rotary is a caring group of people who volunteer and apply their time and talents in providing humanitarian support to local and overseas communities and individuals while also caring for and involving their own members and families.
Members represent a variety of community leaders in business, industry, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion. Rotary is non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races and creeds.
Members have many opportunities for local and international humanitarian service, addressing health care, hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the fulfilment that comes from giving back to the community.
Service and social interaction are equally important at Frankston North Rotary. Our meetings are fun, and we enjoy many social activities. Service and Project work is also very satisfying!
