SA Parliament - Centenary of Rotary

Recently the SA Legislative Council heard from the Hon Nicola Centofanti in  relation to the Centenary of Rotary.

Hansard has recorded the motion which is able to be read below

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (17:53): I move:

That this council—

1. Recognises the Centenary Year of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand, launched at Government House in Canberra by the Governor-General His Excellency David Hurley and Her Excellency Linda Hurley, on 10 July 2020;

2. Recognises 21 April as the date on which the first Rotary Club in Australia was established in Melbourne in 1921, and the subsequent establishment of a club in Sydney in May of that year; and

3. Acknowledges the volunteer efforts, and successes, of Rotary members over the last 100 years, in providing aid of all sorts for those in need and expresses the deepest thanks and appreciation for their service.

End Polio Now Message Hits The Road

The Rotary Polio Ute relay travelled throughout District 9510, from Alice Springs to Adelaide, in late 2020, spreading the word of Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio.
The Rotary Polio Ute Relay started at Alice Springs on World Polio Day, October 24, 2020.
The new release Mazda BT-50 ute was supported by Paradise Motors and also carried the relay baton from one Rotary Club to the next. The BT is short for baton transfer! In fact, the baton recognises the Rotary International End Polio Now theme, as well as the centenary of Rotary in Australia, New Zealand and Oceania this year.
