R100 Project

The Centenary Countdown has begun

It’s a special time. Rotary in Australia and NZ celebrates the First 100 years of Service in 2021.

In 1921, four Rotary Clubs were created in Melbourne, Auckland, Wellington and Sydney. From there, Rotary and Rotaract clubs were created everywhere across Australia and NZ. We all share a centenary in 2021. We can come together and create a common legacy. Think about the impact we can make!  Each Club was asked to undertake a project to celebrate this milestone.

Rotary Eastside Cluster Centenary Project - Centenary Seat in Balwyn Park
 
In April 2020, our four Cluster Clubs of Balwyn, Camberwell, Canterbury, and North Balwyn started working with the Boroondara Council to have a suitable Project designed, constructed, and completed by 21 April 2021.
 
On 11th June 2020, Council invited us to fund a seat as part of their Stage 2 reinvigoration of the Balwyn Park, situated at the corner of Whitehorse Rd and Cherry Road, Balwyn. The actual location of this seat is at the corner of Cherry Road and the access road (mainly for pedestrians) into the new facilities. It will overlook parklands and the Activity area, adjacent to street parking.
