Kevin joined the Rotary Club of Chinchilla on 1st February, 1971  and has served in many and varied positions over the past 50 years.  Most recently he has been looking after the Rotary Wheel that most of you who have visited our town would have seen.  Kevin was also very involved with the Club’s May Day Parade which was a regular part of our Club calendar for 49 years.  He has served as President and as a director on several occasions.  Kevin and his wife Jody have been integral in the organisation of several of our Club fundraising events throughout his service to Rotary Club of Chinchilla.
Kevin was presented with his 50 year award and a letter of congratulations from RI President Holgar when our DG Patrice Robinson came to Chinchilla for her official visit in November last year and at that time he and his wife, Jody were also presented with a PHF each for their services to Rotary by PDG Nick Curry and Jan Curry .
Kevin is a valued member of other community groups in the area along with Jody.  “Service above Self” is Rotary’s ideal and Kevin certainly embodies this because of his dedication to Rotary, his community and their family.  They are both an important part of our Club and we congratulate him on this great milestone and look forward to the next 50.

As you are aware, WA is again experiencing bushfire damage with a current loss of over 71 homes.  
The result of this will be long-term hardship for many and we seek your help in collecting funds so that we can provide the necessary support.
Rotarians have been in contact both locally and from around Australia, keen to be of assistance.
 If there is any practical assistance required we will be in touch with our clubs.  We have made offers to all the relevant shires and evacuation centres.  
In the meantime an appeal fund, managed by Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)  has been set up, and we thank all of you for your support.

The CLIMATE & PEACE FORUM brings you world leading voices in climate and peace.  Through engagement with concerned individuals we promote climate action to increase advocacy within government and corporate communities; to raise awareness of NGOs, Rotary and individuals; to identify and promote activities and to establish partnerships. This quarterly event is initiated by Rotarians for everyone. We look forward to you joining us.

The Forum is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Sydney Cove, supported by the Rotary Clubs of Sydney, Darling Harbour and Corrimal.

My humanity is bound up with yours, for we can only be human together.” 
-Archbishop Desmond Tutu- 
Dear club and district leaders,

Humans are composed of unique and intersecting sets of social identities, defined by our physical, social, and mental characteristics. Examples include race/ethnicity, gender, social class/socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, disabilities, and religion/religious beliefs. By considering each other’s lives, experiences, and perspectives, we allow a community to be not only about what we have in common but what makes us different.
Register now for, Exploring the Black Experience in Rotary on Thursday, 25 February at 15:00 Chicago time (UTC-5), and submit your questions to our experts. A recording of the session will be available to everyone who registers.

Through hearing stories of Black Rotarians around the word, we will:
  • Open ourselves to talking about race and identity. 
  • Become aware and acknowledge how our own social identities impact the club and community experience. 
  • Allow space for all Rotarians to bring their full, most authentic selves to our organization.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and questions.
