Check out the fun we have and the services we deliver on our social media

The Rotary Club of Umina Beach is a Rotary Club for men which operates on The Peninsula on the southern end of the NSW Central Coast. The club was chartered by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy  in 1976.
Our club meets weekly at the Everglades Country Club in Dunbar Road Woy Woy every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm until 8:00pm for fun, friendship, and to discuss and plan new and ongoing service projects locally nationally and internationally. We also regularly entertainer guest speakers across a broad range of interesting topics. On regular occasions we enjoy vocational visits to places of work and enterprise on the Coast to expand our knowledge of different occupations, work practices, and the value these organisations deliver to our community.
We are well known as an extremely friendly club and warmly welcome anyone who would like to join us at any meeting or as a potentially member.

VALE KEVIN WILLIAMS
Our club is very sad to advise the passing of one of our longest serving and best loved Rotarians. Kevin Williams passed away peacefully on Monday night leaving a hole in our club and our hearts which will be very hard to fill. Kevin was an Active Member of Rotary International and our Club for 37 years. He was Club President in 1989/1990 and his dedicated service had been recognised along the way by the awards of a Paul Harris Fellow and a Sapphire Pin. Kevin was Club Treasurer for 11 years, had been the Attendance Officer for many years, and served on the Board for over 15 years. Kevin was always one of the first to volunteer for each local project of Umina Rotary. His presence among us was always as a thorough gentleman with a wicked smile and a twinkle in his eye. As a tribute to his contribution to our club Kevin was recently awarded our club’s first ever Life Membership Award. The award was made at a special ceremony at his home in Empire Bay which was attended by Kevin’s daughters Tracey and Melissa and his son Brad.
Kevin was also actively involved in Probus. He was the inaugural Secretary of the Probus Club of Umina Everglades when it was formed by Umina Rotary in 2002. He was the second President of that Probus Club and served on its Management Committee for many years.
