This Friday, February 23 marks a special occasion for Rotary in our region as we celebrate our 113th Birthday.

That’s right, Rotary has been serving the global community for 113 years.

This is a remarkable achievement and credit must be given to the millions of Rotarians worldwide who have dedicated their time and energy to Making a Difference to humanity.

I may be biased, but I think Rotarians in our area must be the hardest working volunteers in our large Rotary family.

From helping our local students to improve their literacy and numeracy skills, to building communities, providing clean water and good sanitation across south-east Asia, our local Rotarians are committed to making our world a better place to live.

If you want to help celebrate our birthday, then a perfect gift would be to consider joining our Rotary family.

With Clubs located right across our region (some towns even have two), there are plenty of like-minded people in your neighbourhood who want to ensure everyone – locally, nationally or internationally – has the opportunity to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life.

For 113 years Rotarians have been helping build our communities into better places to live. Now is your chance to join the campaign. It’s the best birthday present we could receive!
