Rotary Open Day

The Rotary presentation on 21st September at Harlow College extends the co-operation between the Harlow Rotary club and the college over the last year. It’s about an awareness of what Rotary is all about supporting local, district, national and international  support systems and projects together with friendship and fellowship amongst its members.
One of the legacies of the tie up between Harlow Rotary Club and Harlow College is that the college are about to become a Corporate Member where we hope to encourage the many opportunities that Rotary offer to young people.
Rotary is a  non religious, non political, non ethnic, all gender organisation open to people of all ages.
The presentation will include also speakers from  District 1240 Essex plus Bishops Stortford and Sawbridgeworth clubs on most aspects of what Rotary offers.
Apart from business colleagues if you believe you know someone that might like to be of service to the community and the world please invite them along to the presentation.
Please check out for further information about Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland.
