The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville  is an active and enthusiastic Club which was formed from the amalgamation of the Rotary Clubs of Baulkham Hills, Kellyville (2009) and Winston Hills (2015).

Our Club is involved in many activities at both a local and international level covering aspects such as community service, international service, vocational service and youth. 

 Some of our current and recent projects are The Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Jazz at the Pines , Christmas Tree Sales, Writing Competition for local schools, Australia Day ceremony,  sponsorship of the Bourke Public School breakfast programme,   Youth Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership, numerous partnership projects in India and Sri Lanka and supporting local causes such as North West Disability Services and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

  If you would like to give something back to the community and enjoy fellowship and fun with like minded individuals you are always welcome at one of our meetings.
