Ordinarily our club meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. The third Wednesday is generally a board meeting. Our club will be taking a break for July, August and September, 2024. We'll be back 2/10/2024.
The Rotary Club of Beechworth with the support of Beechworth Sand and Soil (Evan Taylor) and Tim Goldsworthy (excavator and bobcat operator) continued the work to reinvigorate the boat ramp area of Lake Sambell. Cleaning up the area and placing river rocks under a bed of sand has leveled out the foreshore making it more user friendly for swimmers and water craft. There is more work to be done and our small club can always do with a helping hand.
BEECHWORTH ROTARY CLUB will be bringing you another great EASTER SATURDAY MARKET (30 March 2024) in conjunction with this year's Beechworth Golden Horseshoes Festival.  We already have over 105 stall sites booked.  Our Club will welcome some further stalls, particularly food vendors and some buskers but you need to contact us quickly as stall sites are now limited (choose "market" from this website menu or use the relevant "downloads" button for more details and email beechworthrotarymarket@westnet.com.au).  Photo is from our very successful market last year - we will be at same location amongst the magnificent trees in our beautiful Beechworth Queen Victoria Park.
Thanks to our sponsors and funds from our Club, we were able to provide free sausage sizzle and drinks.  Thanks also to Beechworth Fire Brigade for bringing Santa on their firetruck.  Also thanks to our Youth Exchange outgoing student Matilda Collins (France last year) for the adverting poster and for our club members team effort!  Happy New Year everybody
 
 
 
 
Our Rotary Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary since chartering in 1973 with a dinner at Grand Oaks Resort at Mayday Hills, Beechworth, on 11 August 2023.  Our Club is small in numbers (we are seeking new members!) but as the function included a display of historic photos, we were proud to reflect on our contribution to our local community and also international projects by the many projects our Club has run over those years!
Past and current members of our Club attended together with members of neighbouring Rotary Clubs (including Appin Park Wangaratta Rotary Club which promoted our formation 50 years ago).  Our current District Governor Neta Kirby and the following year's District Governor Elect Stephen O'Connell also attended.  Photos courtesy of Coral Cooksley and Ovens & Murray Advertiser.  Click on "Photo Albums" from Home Page Menu above and then click on "50th Anniversary" to view all photos individually or as a slide show.
With easing of Covid restrictions we have resumed having dinner meetings in our Rotary Hall in Beechworth.  Here is our meeting Wednesday 2 February with President Larry (standing) taking questions after our Assistant Governor Richard Lovett (nearest the lectern) had given us an update on the latest developments in our Rotary District 9790.  Great to be getting back to near normal operations now !

The Objects of Rotary
The Objects of Rotary
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular to encourage and foster.
First: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.
Second: High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
Third: The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business and community life.
Fourth: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through the world fellowship of business and professional men united in the ideal of service.
