Over the years our Club has been associated with numerous projects, both here in the Mountains and overseas. Some of these have been through Rotary International, some associated in partnership with other Rotary Clubs, and many haver been the sole initiative of our Club. Over the years we have raised $'000s that has made an impact on communities and individuals. Not all projects are fundraisers, many are simply done to help those in need  in our community. This is a cross section of projects since 2015-16 and those projects underway for this year.
