2014 Peace Fellows Dinner

Rotary World Peace Fellows are a very special group of people. They come from across the world, have a wide range of talents but most importantly they have all been very active and creative in helping people in various parts of the world who suffer from the consequences of conflict. The Fellows have been selected by Rotary as the most talented from a wide pool of applicants. They are complementing their experience with full time studies in peace and conflict resolution sponsored by Rotary International - at one of six specially selected Rotary Peace Centres around the world. Our district is fortunate to host the 2013/14 class of Rotary Peace Fellows who are studying at the University of Queensland. They are coming for a four day programme of professional and cultural visits. On Monday 5 May, 6.30 for 7pm, we will hold a special dinner at The Deck at Regatta Point, Parkes, where all eleven fellows will tell us their fascinating stories as well as their experiences and plans for the future. You will find this inspiring and moving - so much more can be done in peace in peace keeping and conflict resolution - and our Peace Fellow are some of the best equipped to make a difference.

The Worlds Greatest Meal to Help End Polio

Rotarians from all over the world are raising money for the final push in polio eradication by taking part in The Worlds Greatest Meal to Help End Polio. Events have already taken place in other parts of the world, clubs and districts have held events to support this cause and have been very successful. Polio has now been eradicated from most countries in the world with India recently being declared polio free. That now only leaves Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria to finally eradicate polio from the world. Come and join us at the District lunch and help make a splash with a great effort coming from District 9710. During the meal, donations will be sought for the End Polio Now campaign. Clubs are being asked to make a donation to polio eradication at the lunch so make sure that your Club takes part by supporting you with a donation at the event (bring a cheque made out to Rotary Foundation End Polio) Remember that every US$1 raised will be matched by US$2 from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Every dollar matched will immunise seven children. SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR DISTRICT 9710 AND JOIN US TO HEAR A RESPRESENTATVE OF THE INDIAN HIGH COMMISSIONER TELL US ABOUT THE ERADICATION OF POLIO IN INDIA. For further information contact Gail Freeman, Canberra South on 02 6295 2844 business hours.
