The Rotary Club of Mandurah was chartered during 1961 being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Fremantle. At that time Mandurah’s population was 2,000. 

In turn the club sponsored the foundation of Pinjarra Club in 1967, Mandurah Districts in 1986 and Mandurah City in 1993. The club has also founded eight Probus Clubs since 1961. 

Major projects the Club has been involved in over the years include:-

Establishment of the Mandurah Swimming Club, Lotteries Commission House, Mandurah Blind Bowling Club, Mandurah Rotary Duck Race, Rotary Wishing Well and many other projects.

The Club prides itself on Rotary ideals; particularly a commitment to community service.

Western Australia’s Rotarians are individuals who seek to serve the local and world community by
utilising their skills and experience. Like all 1.2 million Rotarians around the globe, they gain enjoyment and satisfaction from providing service, promoting integrity and advancing world understanding and goodwill.

Rotary clubs are part of your community. They bring together men and women of all ages from business, the professions and general community to share friendship and the opportunity to serve.

Each club operates within its community, helping to meet local social and practical needs. Wherever there are active Rotary clubs you may find parks and facilities that have been club initiatives, as well as programs to support schools and community groups. Perth’s first public Cord Blood Bank is the gift of WA Rotary clubs to mark the Rotary centenary, just as the state’s first medical school marked Rotary’s 50th anniversary in the 1950s.

Rotary clubs have a strong vocational focus, working with the business community to promote high ethical standards, youth employment opportunities and foreign experience for young business leaders.

Our new generations, the future leaders of the community, are supported through special leadership development programs, high school and young adult organisations and overseas youth exchanges.

Internationally, clubs back the inspirational End Polio Now campaign that was launched by Rotary to eradicate this crippling and fatal disease. Many clubs have specific programs to tackle poverty, education, hunger and water supply issues overseas.

You can be part of any or all of these programs, as a participant or supporter.

Or you can become a Rotarian too.

Friendship, personal development, business networking and the fulfilment of helping others, make membership of your local Rotary club a richly rewarding life choice. Just ask us.
