Haenertsburg Rotary

The Haenertsburg Rotary Club has a very active committee with an excellent track record for hosting events like the Ebenezer mile and the Iron Crown Trail Run and the Magoebaskloof Classic single day MTB event. The Magoeba will be an exciting addition to their portfolio. The Rotary Club of Haenertsburg was Chartered on 16 February 2001 under the sponsorship of the Pietersburg 100 Club. There were 25 Charter members and over the years this number has fluctuated up and down, but now stands at 21 active and 2 Honorary Members. Four of the original Charter members – Maurice and Chrisna Stander, Bernard van den Dool and Deneys Barry are still serving Rotarians in Haenertsburg. There are 10 women and 11 men presently in the club. The current President is Paddy Ansell, whose year in office runs from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018. The club members come from a wide range of professions, from lawyer to civil engineer, to teacher to financial and insurance managers and some retired professionals. The club members meet once a week on a Wednesday at 18h00 for 18h30 in their own clubhouse – the Rotary Moth Hall situated behind the Village Hall on Rissik Street, which is the main business street in this quaint little village. There is Fellowship time after the meeting when members socialise and enjoy a meal together. The Moth Hall is one of the oldest buildings in Haenertsburg, having originally been the Magistrate’s Court and later used by the MOTHS organisation in the area. Charl Naude will be heading up the Rotary team .
