100% Paul Harris Fellow Club

Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club has 100% Paul Harris Fellow membership, achieved in 2011. The Club was the second club in Rotary District 9640 and the ninth club in Australia to achieve this level of contribution to the Rotary Foundation. At the Changeover Night of June 2012 five new members received PHF pins, continuing the 100% PHF Club achievement.

With new members joining our club we continue to contribute to The Rotary Foundation by achieving the Every Rotarian Every Year target, and encouraging members to become Paul Harris Fellows.
