“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” says Maloney, an attorney. He aims to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth.
“With the eradication of polio, recognition for Rotary will be great and the opportunities will be many,” he says. “We have the potential to become the global powerhouse for doing good.”

Rotary - What Is It About?

Our Rotary Club has many projects on the go!

Latrobe Secondary College Garden Bed Project

On Saturday 19th January 2019, members of our club, Brian Summers, Don Hamilton and Ian Bushby worked extremely hard in 22 deg. temperature, (thank goodness) to get these garden beds finished. At that point, there was just a little bit more to get them to completed stage. We will added the completed images when they come in.

As Vocational Services Director of the Club, he established a bursary for a student at St Martin of Tours Macleod to help with the transition cost from primary to secondary college on the recommendation of the Principal. Essentially. It was for the best “team player” in the graduating Year 6 class with this year’s recipient being the highly commended Joshua Curtain.
