Waikanae Rotary has moved in to a modern, new venue and have a great website, which they are revamping after a few years of operation, and have a great relationship with local media that helps build their public image. This is a Club that recognises that technology changes and that we need to be constantly changing. These are just some of the elements that are helping the Club attract new members.
Congratulations Waikanae Rotarians on half a century of service to your communities.
