Molong Rotary Club inaugurated 1969 and currently has 11 members.  They meet at 7:00 PM on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at the RSL Services Club.
Last year Molong club, together with North Sydney Sunrise Rotary Club, raised $18,000.  These funds were mainly shared between 2 local schools for children to go on excursions.  During the year, Sydney Sunrise and Molong met socially in Wagga Wagga; enjoying each others company and rotary experiences.
The Molong club's main project this year is 'Self-guided tours around Molong's old buildings and district'.  The club applied for a local government grant and were successful.  This funding financed the printing of 3 self-guided pamphlets.

Molong Advanced Group of Businesses run markets quarterly; with rotary members assisting with the set up of the market and 'manning' the entry gates.
The club also provides help with the local Annual Art Exhibition.
