Rotary in Australia Centenary WA Project


In April 2021, we have the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Australia, and the leadership of the two Rotary Districts in Western Australia have agreed to jointly undertake a major project.


Ten suggestions of projects were received, and an independent assessment panel recommended a proposal for the First Clinical Research Centre for Autism in Australia known as CliniKids.


In making their recommendation, the panel emphasised that many of the projects submitted had great merit and they should be supported by Rotary through the efforts of individual clubs or through partnerships.  This is a view that I and both District Boards share.


The next step will be the formation of a 100 years of Rotary Project Committee, jointly chaired by District 9455, PDG Lindsay Dry and DGN District 9465 Colin Burns.  The first task of the Committee will to complete due diligence assessment on the proposed Autism project to be reported to District in early June and then, assuming a satisfactory result, they will work with the project’s proponents to plan and implement it.

The Rotary Clubs of Applecross and South Perth-Burswood invite you to a morning Superbug Seminar to be held on Wednesday 8 May 2019 at 7.20 AM at the Crown Casino Atrium, Burswood. 
Complete with a sumptuous BREAKFAST

International Tennis Fellowship of Rotarians (ITFR)International Tennis Fellowship of Rotarians - ITFR
There is International Tennis Fellowship of Rotarians (ITFR), which brings together people with love to Rotary and tennis (http://itfr.org). ITFR has 1800 members, but is missing several districts and countries.
I am organizing next ITFR 15th World Championship in Tartu, Estonia 23.-31.08.2019 and I am making an effort to attract new Rotarians to join tennis fellowship. World Championship would be good place to get first impression and meet Rotarians with same interest.
Championship is not high-level sport event, but versatile Rotary gathering with tennis, delicious food, great entertainment and interesting talks among friends. As Rotary event, it’s naturally bound to charity. All tournament remnant fund will be directed to End Polio Now and Maarja Village charity projects (https://itfr2019.ee/charity/).
All information how to join ITFR and participate ITFR World Championship can be found at homepage http://itfr2019.ee/. There is early bird discount for registration with a deadline of 15.05.2019.
Exited and Yours in Rotary,
