A group of members from the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton invited a number of individuals to an informal breakfast meeting to look at the possibility of forming a Satellite Rotary Club Satellite clubs carry forward the great work done by Rotary in support of needy communities at home and abroad – similar to Rotary, but on a very informal basis. The clubs meet less often than traditional Rotary clubs and in a very easy style, at around monthly intervals, and usually in such venues as a coffee bar or similar.
The satellite club has the advantage and benefits of being part of Rotary International but has its own agenda and works as an independent group.
An initial interest meeting was held on 3rd. November at the Wolverhampton MS Therapy Centre which was established by the Rotary club of Wolverhampton in 1986. There were around 20 enthusiastic people in attendance and the opportunity was taken for them to network by explaining their background and getting to know each other. There was considerable support for the formation of a satellite club and a second meeting has been arranged.
Satellite clubs are open to men and women and any interested person will be welcome to attend.
The second meeting will be at 7.30am on Wednesday, 13th December 2017 at the Wolverhampton MS Centre, Meadow View Wharf, Tettenhall Road, WV6 0JT.
