Rotary D9510online, eClub President PDG Eric C Russell MBE invites Clubs to partner with the recovery effort for the AFAR region in Ethiopia. One of our overseas members, Valerie Browning lives and works as a volunteer in the AFAR.
In recognition of the Port Arthur tragedy on 28/29 April 1996 the R.C. of Modbury, in conjunction with Trees for Life and staff and students of Modbury Primary School, undertook a planting of 35 eucalypts and casuarinas on a recently cleared reserve at Sandalwood Drive, St. Agnes. Each plant was intended to reflect upon the life of each of the victims of the rogue gunman on that fateful day. The planting was undertaken in May 1996.
In 2018 the City of TTG Council undertook significant refurbishment of the planted area including the replacement of a number of the plants which had not survived the initial planting.

Two reasons why we don’t have Polio in this Country? Rotary’s initiative 33 years ago to stamp it out! and vaccinating your child, we don’t have it in Australia due to vaccinating and if you don’t vaccinate, we are just an overseas visitor away from someone getting it!
Rotary Clubs are continually working on the END POLIO NOW program. Want to be involved in Rotary, let us know! https://voiceofrotary.org.au/contact-us/
