Rotary Myths...
It's compulsory to attend weekly meetings.No, you can attend as many meetings as you like.
It's for old folk. No, Alex Rotary would welcome anyone over 25 who was interested in "making a positive difference" to the community
It's expensive.We try and keep costs to a minimum. Rotary fees are about $5/week, which includes magazine subscription
It's only for men. We welcome women, indeed Rotary has many female Club Presidents.
The meetings are boring.We regularly have community leaders come to our breakfast meetings to keep us up to date on local and international issues
