The Rotary Club of Newark Castle was founded in 1987 with the guidance of the  Rotary Club of Newark. Club membership has reached twenty eight and regular attendance encourages good fellowship and friendly relationships worldwide. Dual gender is now the preferred make up of the Club and we are always looking for members who are prepared to give service to others who are less fortunate than themselves.  The main objective of Rotary is service -- in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
