PresRosemary2017 18It is a great pleasure for me to be not only the President, following my late husband and father in law, but also the 2nd female President of The Rotary Club of Belfast in its 107th year.

We will continue to promote the service Rotary gives to the community both locally and worldwide currently helping young and older people at home through YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance; whilst worldwide supporting the fight to ‘End Polio Now’, helping restore sight in underdeveloped countries and through ShelterBox and AquaBox aiding those in distress overseas.

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join and any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Rotary: Making a Difference –
please join us and help us make that difference.
