Service before self

About Rotary

The Rotary Club of Hutt River Valley is an organisation that is all about people working together to help others - while enjoying the company of members in the process.

Our motto, 'service above self' - is to encourage & foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • FIRST - The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND - High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD - The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

For over 40 years we have been active in the community with highly successful fund-raising and community development initiatives.

Each Club member has the opportunity to contribute their specific talent and expertise to further the causes we select.

Rotary is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.
