What a great night we had at our changeover dinner! Joining many other clubs around the world we chose to ‘change the guard’ on 1 July of this year. We welcomed President Catherine Pevy-Trewartha in for the 2016-2017 Rotary year with almost a full house with 85 in attendance. We celebrated long into the night, the achievements and incredible year we had in our club.
 
Huge congratulations to all members of the club for a hugely successful and rewarding year. Super humans doing great things and good in the local community and globally.
 
Our club achievements this year surpassed the goals we set. We distributed almost $50,000 to local, international charities (grants included), and we also received a Gold Presidential Citation, one of 5 in the District out of 54 clubs. We also inducted two new members (Ron Mullins and Charles Kilby)- which brings the total to 13 new members in our club for the 2015-2016.
 
We welcomed our new board members into the new Rotary year and also launched our huge fundraiser for this year End Polio Gala Dinner being held on 1 October at Marriott Surfers Paradise.

Great article in the latest RDU magazine, enjoy the read....go Burleigh Rotary!
 
“More and more young professionals are looking to make new friends that connect them with the local community. They want to do good. They want to be seen doing good. They want to get their
hands dirty, not sign cheques.” 
 
 
 
 
When new member Jennie joined our club we had no idea that it would lead to our club building a relationship with her favourite local community organisation helping and assisting children with disabilities at the Riding Develops Abilities centre in the beautiful Currumbin Valley. We presented a cheque to the RDA which goes towards funding 4 x children and the purchase of new riding helmets for the centre. We are looking forward to assisting this great facility for many years to come.

It was great to have Karen Andrews and the girls from Burleigh Heads Kindergarten and Pre-School at our breakfast this morning. Burleigh Heads Rotary was successful in gaining funding for the children to have a place to play in all weather. Thank you Karen, for attending this morning's meeting and congratulations to all the fabulous team at the Kindergarten!!
 
We will be assisting the Kindergarten in the replacement and rebuild of outdoor verandah and pergola, later this year. A great project for us to get our hands dirty. 
 
 
 

 
We're a progressive, yet relaxed and friendly, group of men and women from all walks of life who work hard to do good things both in our community and beyond. We also have a lot of fun.

Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have a fundraising partnership that will generate up to US$525 million for polio eradication as the global effort to end this disease enters its critical end-game phase.

Today, only 2 countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan) remain polio-endemic, down from more than 125 countries in 1988. As long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio.

We really are that close to eradicating this crippling disease.

Hear Bill Gates talking about the work being done to rid the world of this crippling disease...and how close we are.

 

 

 

 
We're pretty excited. On the last Saturday of each month, we will get the opportunity to speak to those doing their shopping at Pacific Fair Shopping Complex.
 
This is a chance to tell everyone about the work being done by our Club and Rotary International. The very hardworking Rotaractors will also be joining us.
 
Here's two of our team and the Rotaractors on the first level outside Myer at the top of the elevators.
 
 
So if you see us at Pacific Fair, please say HI.
 

 
 
 
One of our Club's community projects is to organise a fleet of mobility scooters to be allocated to eligible people with a disability that means they are house-bound. The project aims to improve the quality of their lives and provide assistance to their carers and families.
To establish a pool of electric scooters to be leased for an annual fee of one dollar to eligible disabled people who might otherwise be virtually house bound, hopefully to improve the quality of their lives and provide assistance to their families and carers. - See more at: http://portal.clubrunner.ca/9793/SitePage/rotary-scooter-project#sthash.WKNVCNOZ.dpuf
