Rotary Club of Gerringong

The Rotary Club of Gerringong Sunrise is a proud member of Rotary District 9710 and was chartered on 25 June 2003.

Gerringong /Gerroa is a small town of around 4,000 people, located "Where the mountains meet the sea" about one hundred and twenty kilometres south of Sydney, Australia.

Gerringong was originally a dairy community, although tourism is now the major industry. However, our community still retains a friendly, village feel. During the last ten years the town has grown rapidly and this growth is expected to continue.

One of the founding principles of Gerringong Sunrise Rotary Club was to have a successful mixed gender club, and we have achieved that with an even split between men and women members. Great benefits in fellowship arise from focus and with current and previous presidents both being women a balanced range of issues are always being addressed.

Another of our original goals was to work closely with the community. All of Gerringong look forward to the annual Christmas Street Parade, held each December. Our Golf Day is hugely popular and each Australia Day we join forces with Rotary Club of Berry-Gerringong and Gerringong Lions Club to run family activities at Werri Beach.

Our monthly market is also an ongoing opportunity to show Rotary in action.

The proceeds from our fundraising activities, support both local and international charities and also fund many local youth programs. During the 2015/16 financial year over $55,000 was raised and distributed to various Rotary projects and local community service groups - not bad for a small club with 44 members. [more]
