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.

Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen. Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.
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.
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.
