About our Club
The Rotary Club of Paarl was chartered on 27 June 1940. Our Club was the first club established in Paarl Valley and Winelands area. Since its inception, the club has been involved in the chartering of many other clubs whom all operate in the area now. In its 76 years the Rotary Club of Paarl has raised millions of Rands for local charities and has established and been involved in some prominent, self-sustaining organisations.
We meet every Tuesday at 12.30 pm for lunch, fellowship, networking and to listen to interesting and inspiring guest speakers.

Above is the view of our beautiful Paarl Valley. In the distance, one notices the large granite outcrop Paarl Rock (2nd largest after Ayers Rock Australia), after which our town was named. The first settlers called the rock parel (dutch for pearl) as it glistened like one after rain.
Paarl, renowned for its illustrious past and haunting scenery, is situated 57 km from Cape Town in the Winelands of the Western Cape, South Africa.
