Why Join the Rotary Club of Patong Beach?
 
An engaged, enthusiastic membership committed to service above self is the essence of Rotary. Without members, Rotary would not exist, and much good in our community and around the world would not be accomplished. At the heart of Rotary are its members.
Membership will appeal to those who want to join a community of business and professional people who are at a stage in life where they want to get involved in and give back to community. Membership in Rotary offers an opportunity to contribute to worthy community projects with one’s time and financial resources. It offers an opportunity to network with like-minded people. The fellowship of Rotary is rewarding. The networking with like-minded business and professional people will enhance your life, and may enhance your own business as a by-product.
