Lane Cove Rotary is a group of successful professionals from Lane Cove and surrounding suburbs who have a passion for making a difference both in the local community and also supporting international goodwill projects. We all know what it’s like to feel the relief of a weight lifted by a helping hand; and when you pass that action on, the world becomes a better place.
