“Friends of Rotary” is a no-cost programme where those who share the ideals and objectives of the Rotary Club of Orangeville can participate in our activities without the responsibility of full membership.
This is a perfect way for individuals whose schedules preclude regular attendance at our weekly dinner meetings to contribute to our community by participating in Rotary fundraisers and fellowship events.
