After the changeover at the end of June 2018, Clivia Frieden is now the President of the Rotary Club of Orange for 2018-19 following a very successful year under President Denise Martin. It was the first time in the history of the Club that the presidency was handed from one female to president to another.

It currently has 49 members, of which 7 are females and 42 are males; four of the male members are honorary members. Our current office holders can be seen here.
