The Rotary International Presidential Peacebuilding Conference 2018 (RIPPC 2018),  will be taking place on the 17 March 2018 at Sydney Town Hall. This is a Conference you do not want to miss with this being one of the six Rotary Peace Conferences to be held across the globe.

The Conference Program includes keynote lecturers and presentations from international and national leaders in the industries of ‘Economic and Community Development and Peace’. Delegates will hear about the underlying causes of conflict including poverty, disease, lack of water and food security and the lack of education from our inspirational and stimulating speakers.

As happens every year, the RYLA program of 2018 includes a formal dinner for RYLA participants and the Rotarians of their sponsoring clubs. It is an important part of the RYLA experience, and an opportunity for us to show our sponsored young leaders that RYLA is a program which we as Rotarians hold in high regard. It is also a chance to get to know your sponsored participants better, and invite them to your club meetings to talk about their RYLA experience or as potential new members.

It would be great if we could have a strong turnout of District 9685 Rotarians. Partners and guests, including the parents and family of sponsored participants, are more than welcome.

The formal dinner will be held on Tuesday 9th January 2018 at Miramare Gardens, Terrey Hills. The event commences at 6.30 pm and will conclude at approximately 10.30 pm. The cost is $50 per person and includes a two-course meal. Our guest speaker will be Michael Regan, Mayor of Northern Beaches Council. 

If you wish for family and/or friends to attend, please provide their names, Club association and any dietary requirements to RYLA dinner coordinator, Raylene Jarvis of Upper Northern Beaches Rotary Club. Her contact email is raylene2@iprimus.com.au

                    E-CLUB CHRISTMAS E-CARDS SUPPORTING INTERPLAST
 
Dear Friends,
 
Following the many years of traditional Rotary Christmas cards, we’ve launched the modern, efficient, environmentally-friendly version – CHRISTMAS E-CARDS!!
Proceeds from the sale of our e-cards support Interplast in rebuilding bodies and rebuilding lives in the Asia-Pacific region.
Recipients of the e-cards you choose will see our Rotary and Interplast logos when they open their cards.
You and your club members and/or friends can take advantage of this service by going to our website at http://ryderotary.org.au/e-club-ecards and following the instructions there.
We hope you will join us in this initiative to support a really good cause, and to further demonstrate that e-clubs really can do just about anything conventional clubs can do.
 
Yours in Rotary,
Rob Mitchell
Projects Director, Ryde Rotary e-Club
