Rotarians are not only well known for their good acts of service in their communities by implementing thousands of humanitarian projects for the benefit of the underprivileged, but also for the warm fellowship that they enjoy amongst themselves.

It is traditional that Rotary clubs organize what they call fellowships every so often to invite Rotarians not only from their own clubs but also friends from the neighboring clubs for an evening of togetherness to share their ideas and plan for new projects to serve humankind.
