THE CENTENARY BATON IN AUSTRALIA
 
The R100 Centenary Baton has now been launched.
 
The Centenary Baton is an important symbol of how Rotarians connect with each other and our communities, now and into the future.
 
 
 
 
Imagine Rotarians, local personalities, Councillors, community leaders, community groups, and everyday people around Australia & New Zealand carrying the baton of service and passing it forward. Imagine the R100 Centenary Baton being passed on at every District and Club Changeover for the next 100 years, with the Rotary leader’s name inscribed in perpetuity. Connecting with future generations of Rotary leadership.
 
Their Excellencies The Governor General and Mrs Hurley have passed the Centenary Baton to the Presidents of Melbourne and Sydney; the two clubs that were founded in 1921 with 100th anniversaries in April and May 2021. It’s now the turn for every District and any Club to obtain your very own Centenary Baton. Think about the value it can bring in so many ways.
 
How can you get involved?
  • Own your own R100 Centenary celebration and be part of a bigger event!
  • Energise your club and create a celebration of 100 years of Rotary by planning an event - a Dinner, Fund Raiser, Walk through Town, or maybe a Fun Run.
  • Involve your community in your planning, invite members of the public to be part of the committee, engage community groups and businesses to partner with you.
  • The baton is a visible symbol of 100 years of Rotary achievement. Reach out to local media to get the message out across your area. Tell the story of what Rotary has achieved and where we will make a difference in the next 100 years.
  • And be part of a R100 Baton Relay across Australia & New Zealand to celebrate 100 years of Rotary working in our communities. Throughout the country, State by State, District by District, Club by Club. Rotary Connects in new and novel ways like we never have before.
  • Gather batons from across the nation for a “Parade of Batons” at signature Anniversary events throughout 2021, showing your colours and demonstrating to the world that you were there!
 
We are actively seeking club and district champions.
For more information and to purchase your own R100 Centenary Baton, visit the R100 Centenary Baton website at https://www.r100baton.com/ or become Facebook friends @ https://www.facebook.com/R100baton.
The R100 Baton Champion is PP Linda Humphries who would love to hear your story at linda@sandstonehaven.com

RC Freshwater Bay is coordinating a Rotary Wine Appreciation Fellowship Chapter
 
For some time the RC Freshwater Bay has discussed forming a local Chapter of the Wine Appreciation Fellowship, deciding on the name ‘North of the Swan’ as the name of the Chapter.
 
It is intended that Rotarians from all Clubs interested in participating in the RWAF join Freshwater Bay in this venture.  However, Rotarians need to become members of the Fellowship.  Please see http://www.rotarywine.net/application.html to join for a once off cost of US$110.  Sec. RC Freshwater Bay Di Collins has a supply of the distinctive gold corkscrew  lapel pins which are included with the lifetime membership fee.
 
If interested in helping to establish and become involved in the RWAF, please contact Vocational Service Director Fiona Tremlett M. 0416 224 134 E: fiona.tremlett@gmail.com

We are looking for enthusiastic members with a sense of commitment to apply for the following positions.
 
  • Youth Exchange Chair
  • Youth Exchange Committee Members
  • 4 Way Speech Contest Committee Members
We have mentors willing to assist and provide guidance.
