60 MINUTES 2016 Channel 9:  When Gemma Sisia used to tell people her dream was to build a school for the poorest of the poor kids of Africa, she’d be told it was a nice idea but that she was mad and it would never happen.

As Guest Speaker at the Geelong Conference March 23rd to 26th, Robert Pennicott will present his Remarkable Journey on the circumnavigation of Australia and Tasmania in an outboard-driven boat. They departed Sydney on the 2nd June 2011 and travelled anticlockwise around the entire coast of Australia in two 5.4m Naiad RIBs (18ft dinghies). They arrived back in Sydney on the 11th September. Their trip was divided into 77 segments, ranging from 60 to 420 miles. On 48 of the segments, two seats were auctioned to the highest bidder to raise funds for Rotary's Polio Eradication and conservation.

The Rotary Foundation has continued its steady growth, moving up one spot to 93rd in The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s annual ranking of the top 400 nonprofit organizations in the United States.

The new E-Club of District 9500 has no boundaries. It’s open to the world! Read this explanation by Inaugural President, Eric Russell.
 “The Rotary e-club of Greater South Oz 9500 is geographically based in the city and the state of South Australia; however as our Rotary International location is worldwide our members can live anywhere in the world. While our members meet regularly on-line through this website, there is an opportunity for working together on projects to meet community needs in any country or locality.
Friendship is one of the top reasons members join and stay in Rotary. To boost these ties, Rotary Fellowships offer members, spouses, and Rotaractors the chance to connect with one another while enjoying their favorite recreational or professional pursuits. Over 60 Rotary Fellowships cover interests from tennis to wine, marathon running to cooking, scuba diving to recreational vehicles, jazz to computers, and more.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people — children, families, and entire communities — benefit from projects funded by The Rotary Foundation. When you give to Rotary, you enable local leaders to create sustainable solutions to their community's most pressing needs.
