Welcome to the Devonport Rotary Club
The Rotary club is a world-wide association of business and professional people, founded in 1905 by Paul Harris, a native of Wisconsin, U.S.A. Today Rotary International has over 1.2 million members in 33,586 clubs in over 210 countries and territories.
Rotary is a service organisation committed to improving the lot of all people around the globe. It is non-religious, apolitical and community based.
Devonport Rotary club was ‘chartered’ in 1977. Our members encompass a wide cross-section of occupations, almost all of whom are residents within the suburb’s boundaries. We are a club noted for its friendliness and its involvement in local community activities and community development.
Perhaps our best known local project is the Fine Homes Tour of Devonport, started in October 2013. We run this prestigious event bi-annually, with our second Fine Homes Tour was held on Friday 16th October 2015.
As the event is further developed over the years we are sure it will become ‘the event of the year’ for home owners and prospective owners alike. Other community participation projects include the restoration of schools and other facilities in the Pacific Islands as well as assisting in the operation of local events.
