Rotary Club of Melton Valley
The Rotary Club of Melton Valley has taken great pride in serving the community on local, national and international levels since it was chartered on the 29th of May, 1991. Rotary International is a non-religious, non political organisation whose core value is to “do something good in the world”
We are a medium sized club of diverse members, both women and men, from the Melton community. The club is always looking for new members and if you are interested use our contact page and a member will be in personal contact shortly after.
We raise funds through a variety of activities and our projects are local, national and international. We are a club that likes to go out into the community and participate in a variety of ways. We take pride in our community involvement.

Locally, the Rotary Club of Melton Valley has been involved in various projects ranging from the Bacchus Marsh and Melton Regional Hospital, various events for the local Shire of Melton including Australia Day Celebrations, Men’s Shed activities, Combined Churches Caring Melton, the Djerriwarrh Festival and The Royal Melbourne Agricultural Society of Victoria. The Rotary Club of Melton Valley routinely assists at the Variety Christmas Party, the Muscular Dystrophy Annual Camp and Jane McGrath Foundation afternoon teas. A busy club, we always enjoy participation in many other community support programs as requested.
We recognise the local need to be ‘forever remembered’ and support this through the sale and maintenance of our tree lined ‘Avenue of Honor’ which runs along Federation Drive, Melton.
Nationally our club has provided support to fire and flood victims in Victoria and Queensland through events such as our ‘Yellow Ribbon’ sales and our annual Harness Racing Event in conjunction with other local Rotary Clubs.
Internationally our club supports the Rotary International Foundation through sales of our high quality fruit cakes. Our club has raised in excess of $95,000.00 for the ‘End Polio Now’ project and we annually provide emergency accommodation through the purchase of disaster aid shelters which are distributed throughout the world. We are proud of our direct involvement in the enhancement of living conditions and education of others through our Tonga and Zimbabwe school projects and our involvement in the Tibet Village Project (Australia).
Our club actively supports local youth developments through a number of initiatives including Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA), Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) and National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) and support of local schools through project funding and scholarship programs. We also encourage local school children to become involved in our international projects.
New members and visitors are most welcome!
