What has our Club been doing?
Most Rotarians know about the Centurion and Paul Harris Fellow recognition programs for individuals who make donations to The Rotary Foundation.  But, did you know about the new recognition programs that honour Rotary Clubs for making donations? 
The idea is to encourage your club to allocate a share of your club’s fund-raising project income to Rotary’s own charity – The Rotary Foundation – in addition to the special causes that you are passionate about. 
The Club Giving Awards honour the Clubs that donated at least $5000 to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund, and/or that donated at least $2200 to the End Polio Now Fund.
For the year ending June 2021, the Awardees were:
 
Lower Blue Mountains
Northbridge
Chatswood Roseville
Lane Cove
Carlingford
West Pennant Hills & Cherrybrook
Ryde
Mosman
Lower Blue Mountains
Northbridge
Chatswood Roseville
North Ryde
The Hills-Kellyville
Nepean
Turramurra
Pennant Hills
Blackheath
 
As you plan your club’s fund-raisers for this Rotary year, we ask you to set aside 10% of the amount raised for these two Rotary Foundation programs.  The Annual Fund is our “seed bank” that returns money to our district for club-directed projects.  The Polio Fund is vital to ensure that polio is finally eradicated from the planet.

Last week's guest speaker was Bob Aitken (District Governor 9685 1996-97).  What a wealth of information about Rotary - including Polio Plus; the End Polio Now campaign (involved since 1985) and Rotary Down Under where he held management positions from 1984 to 2014.  He has brought much of that knowledge and experience together in the new publication Centenary of Rotary in Australia 1921 -2021.
 
A little late due to school holidays and Covid but Peter and Bernie Mason did manage to deliver the donations to the final two schools.  Both school were very grateful for the donation.

It’s our birthday and after a year of COVID-19 restrictions that cancelled many of our plans, we want to celebrate!

40 years ago, Australian Rotary Health (ARH) was established as a charitable fund by Rotarian PP Ian Scott and the Rotary Club of Mornington, Victoria, to research the mystery of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Since those early days, our work has continued to expand and has made an impact not only across the country, but also internationally. With the support of Rotary Clubs and Districts in Australia, we are so proud to be a part of creating better health for all Australians. Research and advancements in knowledge funded by ARH provide both preventative and curative solutions for a broad range of health conditions.

Since 2000, our research focus has been on mental health. In 2012, this focus narrowed to the Mental Health of Young Australians (Aged 0-25), and in 2013, projects focussing on the Prevention of Mental Illness were included. Programs such as Cool Kids and Mental Health First Aid are just a couple of examples of our funding leading to positive outcomes. 

Lift the Lid on Mental Illness is our national campaign for mental health research and awareness, and every year on World Mental Health Day (October 10) we celebrate Hat Day to raise funds for vital research into mental health. 

In just 40 years, we’ve achieved so much. We’re inviting you to help us mark this milestone year and invest in the future by supporting our work today.
Say Happy Birthday to ARH

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

OBJECT OF ROTARY

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

•FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

•SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

•THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

•FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

 

THE FOUR-WAY TEST

Of the things we think, say & do:

1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
