TorpyWelcome to our Website!

We are excited to start our 84th year supporting the 2022-2023 theme of Imagine Rotary. While this year’s theme logo looks pretty simple, but it has a much deeper meaning. The circle in aboriginal culture signifies our connections to one another. The dots around it represent people. There are seven because of Rotary has seven areas of focus. The circle and the dots together become a navigation star – our guiding light. The solid line underneath is what is referred to as a digging stick, and it is used when doing hard work. Since Rotary members are people of action, it represents a tool for getting things done. We look forward to solving problems and helping our community.

Since December 17, 1938, the Dublin Rotary Club’s members have used their passion, energy, and expertise to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our community and the world. Our club is one that lives Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self”.
