Rotary’s Centenary is a time of celebration! - a time to reflect on our past, and take pride in all that has been achieved.  It is a time we play our part in the history of Rotary.  Our centenary is also the time to lay the foundations for our future, as we still have much to do.  The key project in our centenary year will focus on stopping the one in 16 children who die in 9 Pacific nations before the age of five. 

Our President Robert Blanchard joined Rotarians across Australia on 10th July for virtual fellowship, as well as met our R100 Centenary Ambassadors, the Governor General and Mrs Hurley, as they launch our national centenary campaign.  He witnessed the “Passing the Baton” ceremony.  The baton that will carry the symbols of our centenary and will travel far and wide across Rotary clubs and Districts. He also had Josh Piterman (Australian Actor who plays the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera) in London! He sang "Music of the night" with music by John Foreman (Melbourne).  

Robert said it was a fantastic performance to be part of.

 

 

After months of fund raising we as a club have donated the funds to purchase a new defibrillator to the Grafton Base Hospital.  A total of $12,300 was required to deliver this life saving equipment to the local hospital.  A presentation was made on 27th March at the hospital.
 
Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT). A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart.
