We have a variety of backgrounds and we all bring a strength to the club, we have fun at our meetings, we enjoy each others company and we try to make our community a better place.  We try to go on one or two fun trips per year to a maple sugar camp, barbecue, sleigh ride, or a bus trip to a secret destination. We hope you enjoy your experience in Rotary. Get involved, give ideas, have fun!!!

Funds necessary to operate the Rotary Club of Chatham are provided by the members themselves. No portion of contributed funds go towards members’ or club expenses.
