FEATURE

Rotary Race Day

Rotary International is excited and proud to announce our partnership with the South Australian Jockey Club in the running of our Rotary Race Day. 

Rotary is the world’s oldest and largest service organisation made up of over 1.2 million individuals in 215 countries who volunteer to do good in the world. 

Rotary clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action. Our clubs also offer members opportunities to make new friends, and enjoy fun social activities. 

Each Rotary club is supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Rotary International supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives benefitting communities locally and internationally. 

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary’s charitable arm which funds projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a non-profit entity, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world. 

With an expected public attendance of over 5000 people we invite you and your organisation to partner with Rotary at the 2015 Derby Day celebrations

OTHER ROTARY ANNOUNCEMENTS & COMMUNITY EVENTS

Timmy's Story

Timmy is our most valuable Rotarian. He is loyal, welcoming, responsive and
productive. He is never depressed, always active and is a quiet club achiever. His
presence has raised many many dollars for the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay over
many years.

In recent times the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay has honoured Graham Brown
(PHF Sapphire) and his wife (Honoury Member Carole Brown - PHF). They have
been responsible for leading many of the club fund raising projects and wherever they
go, Timmy goes as well. Timmy is their dog.

When it comes to selling Boat Raffle tickets, Timmy is always there - usually dressed
in Rotary attire - and people passing can’t resist stopping to give him a pat, cuddle or
tid-bit - and they buy a raffle ticket as a result and perhaps one more when they go
past later on. He is a conversation starter and a draw card. The tail wags as he says
thanks and people leave with smiles on their faces.

Rotary Club of Kent Town
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders. Clubs are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Richly rewarding, Rotary gives you the opportunity to pay it forward and to have a positive impact wherever you choose

Getting Involved
While developing business networking opportunities and building life long friendships Rotarians experience personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.

The magic of Rotary is that it allows ordinary people to achieve the most extraordinary things. By using the powerful synergy of one, people unite to achieve exceptional change. Many ordinary members of Rotary have developed projects that have brought significant change whilst experiencing personal growth in an organisation that is respected worldwide for its high values and standards.
