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.
Welcome to my October DG Newsletter.  As I travel around the clubs, I cannot help but be impressed by the energy and enthusiasm displayed by the members. The nature and diversity of the projects is very humbling and makes me proud to be a Rotarian. To see Rotarians in action in so many arenas is inspirational and this issue of the Newsletter that Lynne Layng has put together contains reports of some very active Rotarians.  Click Here to Download

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 ranking is based on monetary contributions from private sources and reflects the increasing generosity of those who support Rotary’s mission.
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.
Young people want to be office bearers and meaningful leaders in Rotary, and they want to support causes that they can relate to – these were just two of the many findings from the Australian National Youth Summit held recently in Canberra.
Held in parallel with the National Membership Success Seminar, the Youth Summit brought together around 25 young people from Rotary, Rotaract, and Youth Exchange.  It was facilitated by young Rotarians Damian Leach, Kaye Titmarsh and Natalie Jupe.
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.
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian.  Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special needs children will play baseball – all before zipping to the airport for a flight to Chicago and a cab ride to Rotary International World Headquarters, where he takes office as president of RI this month.
