About the Rotary Club of Corowa

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Corowa


Our club was chartered on May 17th 1939 by the Rotary Club of Albury and we are the second oldest club in Rotary District 9790.


We currently have 24 members and are actively working in promoting Polio Plus, which is aimed at eradicating polio world wide. We also support local community projects including school bursaries, adopt a highway cleanup program, exchange students and many more.


In 2014 we took over the about to be defunct Federation Festival Committee and started to reinvigorate the monthly market, BnS Ball and 2016 we introduced Federation Dinner and Tim Fischer Oration to be held on the Friday of the Australia Day weekend. In 2016 we also re-booted the Federation Parade and co-ordinated the community funding of the New Year's Eve fireworks

Friends of Rotary

The Rotary Club of Corowa has started a Friends of Rotary group, this is for people who wish to be involved in community projects, but don't think they have the time to commit to full membership in Rotary.


The group also allows people to have a look at how we work and what we do.
