End Trachoma by 2020 - Building Healthy Communities

Tony has been a very active member in the various Clubs and also at a District level in Districts 9680 and 9600 since 1991 when he joined THORNLEIGH Club in (then) District 9680.  In 2003 Tony and Marilyn moved to Brisbane and he became a member of Rotary Club of SAMFORD VALLEY until the move to Sunshine Coast in late 2014 when he joined the Rotary Club of ALEXANDRA HEADLAND. He has been Assistant Governor, President, a PHF, and held many other Rotary positions. Tony has a background included marketing of consumer products, furniture, fashion, toiletries and pharmaceuticals. He continues to do some business review and coaching for small businesses as he enjoys “retirement” ...which meant going from paid work to volunteer and Rotary work!

He is the Trachoma Champion for Rotary District 9600

Greetings from Darwin
Gerry Swan has advised that he attended the changeover night of the Rotary Club of Darwin Sunrise on Thursday 25 July, which was also the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the club's Charter meeting.
He spent the previous Wednesday in hospital having his heart zapped back into rhythm, so he missed his flight and bus; he was able to get another flight to Darwin on Thursday and made it with five hours to spare.
Big thanks to Gordon for looking after me.
The photo shows four of the Charter members that were available and attended.

August is Membership Month
August is Membership and New Club Development Month, which means it’s time to celebrate our Rotary club, our members, and the good this club does in our community and around the world.
What some may not know is that the Rotary Australia website puts a wealth of Membership Development information at our fingertips.  Try this, for a start.  If you follow the link you will have 10 publications and a lot of useful ideas.
What does Rotary mean to you?  Rotary members have pushed polio to the brink of eradication, delivered clean water to those in need, improved their local communities, provided scholarships to the next generation of peacemakers, and continued to do good in the world.
Read on for more ways to join in the celebration ...

Strategic Plan RI
Rotary International has updated its strategic plan and there is a great two-sided flyer which has RI's core values on one side as well as our vision statement and updated strategic priorities on the other.  It's a useful summary of where we are at and where we are going as an organisation for our members, potential members and our communities.
