A sled dog struggles for survival in the wilds of the Yukon.
Adapted from the beloved literary classic, THE CALL OF THE WILD vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team--and later its leader--Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.

As a live-action/animation hybrid, THE CALL OF THE WILD employs cutting edge visual effects and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic--and emotionally authentic--characters.

What is your image of Rotary?
If you are a member of Rotary like me, you probably already know that it’s one of the largest and oldest service organisations, that we try to attract good people and equip them to be even better, and that we are all about doing good works in our local communities. But what does the general public think about Rotary?
Surveys suggest that a majority of non-members see the organisation as mostly old, mostly male, and mostly white. Now, I know I have been to the “Rotary Club of Jurassic Park” once or twice before, but I also know we are so much more than that.!
So how do we best counter this common perception of our great organisation?

Foundation Trustee Chair's February message
Confucius took great pleasure from water. He said: "Great water can continuously move forward without stopping. It is so kind as to irrigate the lands everywhere it goes, yet it does not regard itself as having performed outstanding feats. It's just like virtue."

World Understanding & Peace Day
On 23 February 1905, little did Paul Harris and his three friends realise what they were starting when they met in room 711 of the Unity Building in Chicago. We have come a long way, since then, but we still have a long way to go to achieve goodwill, peace, and understanding among all people of the world.
The Board of Directors of Rotary International asks that all Rotary Clubs plan programs at your weekly meetings and take on special activities to emphasize understanding and goodwill as essential components of world peace.
February is a chance for every club to pause, plan and promote our Fourth Avenue of Service – Our continued goal for goodwill, peace, and understanding among all people of the world, as we also celebrate February as Peace & Conflict Prevention / Resolution Month.
In 1896, Paul Harris went to Chicago to practice law.  One evening, in the early 1900's, Paul went with a professional friend to his suburban home.  After dinner, as they strolled through the neighbourhood, Paul's friend introduced him to tradesmen in their stores.  This reminded Paul of his grandparent's home in New England.   "Why not have a fellowship composed of businessmen from different occupations, without restrictions of politics or religion?" he thought.

The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard is a marine search and rescue organisation comprised entirely of volunteers.

Operating under State and Territory Emergency Management frameworks, the Coast Guard's distinct yellow vessels respond to a variety of marine incident types, rescuing thousands of people each year. It also works in support of other agencies in response to events such as marine fire and medical evacuation from vessels.

In addition to the Coast Guard's marine search and rescue responsibilities, as a Registered Training Organisation, it is able to deliver accredited training not only to it's volunteers, but also offer public education courses.
