Many members of Rotary have developed projects that have brought significant change whilst experiencing personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.

At the recent Nelson Bays Rotary Club’s Awards night, Community Services Director Chris Bartlett gave members and guests a brief overview of the Club’s Community activities over the past two months.
