Welcome to the Rotary Club of Caboolture

 

Are you interested in helping your community?

 

Not just the local community but the world wide community as well?

 

If the answer is YES, then why not join us in helping others?

 

So far in the 2017/2018 Rotary year our club has achieved nearly 5,000 hours of volunteering, what a wonderful effort that you could be part of.

 

Caboolture takes its unusual name  from the aboriginal word for carpet snake `Cabul-tur` and we think we have an unusual Club. It was established in 1954 and has a great record of service to the local community and for international projects through the intervening years.

Please take the time to check out our exciting website and you will see how we intend  to carry on this service into the future, hopefully with your assistance. Do take the opportunity to come along to a meeting with our great mix of men and women to share the Rotary experience of service, fellowship and fun.

Yours in Rotary

President 2018/19
