At meetings we usually share a meal, have a guest speaker, connect and  discuss fun community projects we are working on.

About The Rotary Club of Wauchope 

Wauchope Rotary was chartered on 8 September 1952 - Just 47 Years after Rotary International.  It is now one of over 35,000 clubs working together to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. If you live in Wauchope and have a desire to make the world a better place, why not attend our social meeting on the first Tuesday of each month to learn more about Rotary Wauchope in an informal setting - usually at a club, pub or restaurant.  Meet our members, discover amazing projects our members are working on and perhaps find a place for yourself amongst like-minded people and new friends!

Member meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays 6pm for 6.15pm at Rotary Hall, Oxley Lane, Wauchope; and the Board meets on the second Tuesday  each month at 5.30pm at Rotary Hall.  When there is a 5th Tuesday we visit a local business to learn more about our community.

Wauchope Rotary Club History

This section deals with the social history of our club over the past six decades.

It gives a brief overview of what took place in the world & Australia while we, as Rotarians, went through the “teething” process of the early years, then on to being the dynamic organisation we are today. Wauchope Rotary has quietly supported many worthwhile individuals & organisations. For a more detailed account, go to the section “Golden Anniversary” or “Diamond Jubilee.” But for a quick, light-hearted view of what took place in any given decade of our Club’s history, keep reading.

Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.

Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation?

Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.

How does The Rotary Foundation use donations?

Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.

What impact can one donation have?

It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2 so if you donate $5 to the foundation, it is like you are actually donating $15. Thank you!
