ROTARY'S VISION STATEMENT:

 
Rotarians Are People of Action
This month's theme is The Rotary Foundation
 
 
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary International, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

RIPE Gordon McInally and wife Heather were in Sydney for one day only, following the Zone 8 Conference in Canberra, before flying to Lima, Peru for the South American Zone Conference. 
Gordon generously altered his journey, via Sydney to meet Rotarians who rarely have the chance to catch up with an RI President or President Elect. The Luncheon was held on Monday October 31, 2022 in the Strangers Dining Room at NSW Parliament House This was a one off opportunity to meet RIPE Gordon in Sydney and hear about his thoughts for Rotary in the years ahead.
The Luncheon event was an outstanding success. RIPE Gordon gave an inspirational presentation, and all who attended the event were extremely glad that they had done so.
We look forward to his year as the Rotary International President in 2023-2024 
 
 
Although World Polio Day has passed, (24 October), you can still help us make an impact and stop the spread of polio. You can take action by:
World Polio Day will help us provide the resources needed to protect children from the U.S. to Mozambique and around the world. Join us so that no child suffers the paralyzing effects of polio ever again.

Lindsay May OAM District 9685 Governor
On 18-19th March, we attended the annual District Conference, themed "Navigating Change. COVID has been obstructive in the last couple of years for our Conferences, but this time it was all GO. Held at HQ West in Rooty Hill, this flamboyant Conference Centre, Hotel and RSL Club proved to be a great venue for some 450 Rotarians. It was so good to see everyone and renew networks and friendships. what we also reflected on that the community work has been still carried on despite COVID.  
 
Whilst at one level it was a social event, there was a serious side with our community work. The Young Australian of the Year, Dr Daniel Nour, spoke about his work in setting up Street Side Medics, bringing on-the-ground medical support to homeless and disadvantaged people. What an inspiration he is.
 
The second highlight of the Conference was hearing from the iconic athlete Louise Sauvage OAM (shown below being interviewed by Stephanie Brantz) who relived some of her Paralympic sporting achievements. What a determined, purposeful person she is.
 
A great Conference and congratulations to DG Lindsay May and the Conference team.
