Rotary's 111th Anniversary!!

On Thursday Feb.25th Rotary clubs mark the 111th anniversary of the first Rotary club meeting! For more than a century, Rotary members have been committed to serving others by taking action to improve communities locally and around the world.
 
Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

Sydney Sunrise Rotary Supporting Loaves & Fishes

Sydney Sunrise Rotary Continues Support Of Loaves & Fishes

Sydney Sunrise Rotary on going support of Sydney's largest food bank "Loaves and Fishes".  Our club purchases food supplies and serves the meal six times each year!
 

Hunger has been an issue since time immemorial. In 1981 a group of concerned citizens gathered in Sydney to discuss the problem. The result was the establishment of the Loaves and Fishes Community Kitchen. The non-profit restaurant was intended to be a temporary measure, but unfortunately the demand was so great that it is still in existence today.

Indeed, Marco Amati, Manager of the Inner City Churches Loaves and Fishes Society, recently acknowledged an increase this year in the number of people coming into the kitchen for a meal.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
