A new Rotary club has been formed in our area. It is called the Afton Sunset Rotary Club and was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Concord. The purpose of the Club is to “Serve our Community” through projects while meeting new people and networking in a friendly social setting.
Meetings are being held at Afton Tavern on Tuesdays from 6 – 7 PM. No meal is provided so members and guests can be home for family dinner or dine at any one of Afton Village’s restaurants. There is an interesting program each week and community projects are also discussed.

Rotary is essentially a grassroots organization, with most of its efforts being carried out at the club level. The district and international structure is designed to support the clubs and help them serve their local and world community.
Rotarians are members of a local Rotary Club, which belongs to the global association of Rotary International (RI). Each club elects its own officers and enjoys considerable autonomy within the framework of Rotary International.
