Congratulations to Rotarians and Friends - we raised just over $10,000 on the night in hard cash donations - we are just waiting for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to  push this final amount to $30k - we'll keep you posted but want to thank everyone for their efforts and donations in helping to save lives around the Globe.  Did you know there are around 350,000 people still suffering in Australia alone with the effects of Polio!  
 
You are invited to attend the 2017/18 Changeover Dinner on Saturday 1st July, 2017 at the Mowbray Park Surf Club, Burleigh Heads - please contact us if you would like to attend.  Richard Spencer will be taking over from our current President Catherine Pevy-Trewartha.  Invitation to be sent out soon, but please keep the date free to support the club.
 
 
 
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.
 
 

6 District Awards wins with the presentation of award certificates
 
 
 
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.
 
If you're thinking about joining our Club, we encourage you to visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/burleighheadsrotary1.
 
You'll find a lot of general information about Rotary and our Club HERE or by clicking on the image below. Email us at BurleighHeadsRotary@gmail.com.
 
We encourage you to join us for a breakfast meeting at the Surf Club, Mowbray Park, Burleigh Heads, at 7am on Thursdays. We'll even give you your first two breakfasts free.
 
 

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
