Are you someone who wants to help make the world a better place, whether it’s locally or internationally then Rotary is looking for you to get involved.
The Rotary Club of Corowa is always looking for new members, to help it with its programs especially at a local level, but also through its support of Rotary International’s worldwide projects, like eradicating polio from the world, or helping communities in remote and third world countries with getting a supply of fresh water, improving literacy and many more programs.
The club’s major long term project is the Whitehead Street Wetlands, where the club has already installed a bird hide, interpretive signs, shelters, paths as well as some tree planting to mentions only some of the work done and there is still a lot more to still be done.
Many of the projects have a youth focus, take for example the BandS Ball, which is run each year, as well as youth exchange and all the programs the club offers to the schools for their students.
The club has recently changed its meeting structure, firstly it now meets on a Wednesday night at the Corowa RSL Club from 6:30 for 7:00pm. Each second meeting is now an informal social night with little, or no business being discussed. Attendance is no longer a requirement of membership and members can come to meetings whenever they like and if being involved in projects is more important than coming to a weekly meeting, then that is fine by the club.
Rotary are looking for people of all ages from 18 and up, with as many different backgrounds, experiences and skills as possible, who want to make a difference.
If you would like to come to a meeting call the club on 0499 878 529 to let them know you are coming, generally the first meeting is on them, or alternately look at their website www.corowarotary.org.au to see what the club is involved in now and have done in the past, you’ll find there are much, much more than sausage sizzles and raffles.
