Welcome to the Georgetown-Millsboro Rotary Club's website. We are located in the center of Sussex County, Delaware in the heart of the DelMarVa Peninsula. This area is known as Lower, Slower Delaware and we are happy to live and work here.
Please join us any Tuesday at noon. We meet in Tunnell Hall of the Georgetown Presbyterian Church, 203 North Bedford Street, just two blocks north of "The Circle."
