For the first 15 minutes, we have ‘fellowship’ and catch up with each other at the bar. Before each meeting, we pay for our meals, grab our Rotary name badge and head inside for the meeting.The Chairman opens the meeting with Rotary Grace and a Toast to Rotary. After the toasts, the President welcomes Club members, visiting Rotarians and guests. During the meeting, we eat our evening meal while all Directors are given the opportunity to address the Club with their business. After dinner, the Chairman introduces the guest speaker who presents their session. Guests may be any person, a business or government representative, director of one of the charitable organizations to which the Club contributes, a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Rotary Exchange student from another nation, or a community leader. There is opportunity to ask questions of the guest speaker on completion of their presentation.We adjourn between 8.30-9.00pm although one week out of every four, Board members stay on for an additional Board meeting.

WHAT IF I MISS A MEETING?

A unique aspect of Rotary is the opportunity to join another club meeting in another town or country if they miss their own club meeting due to business or holidays. Rotarians are welcome to join another club meeting anywhere in the world and learn how another club operates. It is called a "makeup" and it's reported at their own club meeting on return.

History of Rotary Moorabbin

The Rotary Club of Moorabbin was chartered on 19th June 1984 initially with twenty-four members. Its name derives from the localities of Bentleigh, Moorabbin and Oakleigh located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne Victoria Australia Since its charter year the club was known as RC Moorleigh-Bentleigh East but in 2007, our name was changed to Rotary Club of Moorleigh-Moorabbin in recognition of the growth of the area. In 2018 we changed our name to Rotary Club of Moorabbin to identify with the our local community. Our club is a medium sized Club and fosters strong fellowship and friendship. There is a broad range of ages within the men and women members and the membership reflects a diverse nature of vocations and occupations. Our club is always looking for energetic and enthusiastic people interested in serving the community. Membership involves attending regular meetings and participating in projects as well as involvement in social and fund raising activities We welcome any interested people in joining Rotary to attend our meetings and obtain information.
