Focus This Year

As a club we have decided our major focus this year will be to assist the local community and help build resilience to mitigate the impact COVID19 has had financially on families in the local area.  Our committees are working hard to understand pressing needs and will be responding throughout the year to make a difference for those in need.

The Centenary Countdown has begun

 

In 2021  Rotary In Australia & New Zealand celebrates its 100th Birthday!  We are gearing up to celebrate this great milestone.

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.
