The Rotary Club of Frankston
Fundraising and Fellowship
The Rotary Club of Frankston was formed 67 years ago and over that time as provided continual support to the local community.
Its 70 members are volunteers from all walks of life and raise money from the club’s Seaford Farmer's Market, which is held on the third Sunday of the month, as well as Bunnings barbecues, social functions and car rallies.
The object of the Rotary Club of Frankston, as with Rotary clubs throughout the world, is to develop community service and friendships with like minded people; promote and recognise high ethical standards in business and all types of professions, and we hope to advance world understanding and peace through international contacts and fellowship.
What We Do
Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:
- Promote peace
- Fight disease
- Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
- Save mothers and children
- Support education
- Grow local economies
How We Do It
Our club supports a range of local community, national and international projects and the generation of fund to support these projects involves all members whenever they are available.
Our primary source of income is our highly successful Farmers Market in Seaford which operates on the third Sunday of every month. Regular BBQs at the Farmers Market, Bunnings and other community opportunities are all used to generate income.
