Club News

Basic Education and Literacy Month

As September is Rotary's month to focus on basic education and literacy, I thought club members might appreciate being reminded of some of the great work we are supporting in this area

RIMERN is our new community relief agency project, helping domestic violence victims, refugees and former prisoners to set up a new home.
 
Establishment of 'safe havens' for victims relies heavily on donated items - if you have surplus items (as described below), which you aren't using consider assisting with donations (and clear your cupboard space).
Grand Final Competition for the Whole Family

It’s time we all had some fun. We can’t go to the Grand Final but this is an invitation for you and your family to enter our Grand Final Competition.
 
Is it skill or is it luck? Time will tell.
 
Rotary Walk with Us to End Polio
 
Following a very successful event in 2020 Rotarians, friends and the community are encouraged once again to take action from October 1st to 31st to raise awareness, funds, and support to end poliomyelitis, a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens the children of the world today.  
 
The Rotaboars Team will again take part so come and join us!!
Year 11-12 Scholarship Grants Available from October 1st
 
 
The District Foundation Year 11-12 Scholarship Program has been enormously effective in assisting talented and motivated students facing financial hardship to complete their secondary education. Most recipients so far have also gone on to commence tertiary education. Clubs have also used this opportunity to strengthen their relationship with local schools and inspire participation in other Rotary Youth programs.
 
Rotary International Theme
Shekhar Mehta, the Rotary International President 2021 - 2022 has selected his theme as "Serve to Change Lives".
 
 
 
Rotary Four Way Test
Rotarians live by the Four Way Test:
 
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives and create a better word to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
