Litter Legends

Anna and Gavin spent a couple of hours on Sunday morning with Litter Legends at Capalaba Park 'N' Ride in Moreton Road. Amazing what people will leave around the place!! Layne Utz, the driving force behind Litter Legends is moving to Townsville to begin training in the Queensland Police. We wish Layne all the best, and now - how can we assist other volunteers in continuing his work to keep Redlands clean?

RARE Coming to Redlands!

After several years of negotiations with Redland City Council RARE - Rotary Australia Repuprosing Equipment (previously DIK - Donations in Kind) are moving to MacArthur Street, Alexandra Hills. See the article in this week's GIST D9620 GIST - 17th January, 2023 (Jan 17, 2023) for details.  Much help is required for the move, and then ongoing, this is our opportunity to use a few hours a week to help sort and pack the goods ready for loading into containers to go overseas. Watch this space for the progress of this exciting new venture.

Rotary International Theme for 2023-2024

Rotary International President-elect R. Gordon R. McInally called for members to capture the world's attention and lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.

McInally, a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, West Lothian, Scotland, revealed the 2023-24 presidential theme, Create Hope in the World, during the Rotary International Assembly in Orlando, Florida, USA, on 9 January. He urged members to promote peace in troubled nations, help those affected by conflict, and maintain the momentum of initiatives begun by past leaders.

"The goal is to restore hope — to help the world heal from destructive conflicts and, in turn, to help us achieve lasting change for ourselves," McInally said at Rotary's annual training event for incoming district governors.

The Rotary Foundation Annual Report

The Rotary Foundation is our charity - an excerpt from John Hewko's letter and the link to the report below. Take the time to read the report - its amazing what we are achieving in the world.

"A year of records broken, a series of firsts, exceeded expectations – this is the difference your support of The Rotary Foundation is making. Your belief in the power of our collective action is enabling Rotary to help more people, in more places, in more ways."

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

How good is it to hear from a participant in one of our Rotary Youth Programs? Jake Davies told us, with lots of pictures, about his experience earlier this year at RYLA. Pictured are Youth Director Lyn Packer, sponsor Allan Tully, and Jake (who is the partner of Allan's granddaughter).  Jake told us he has been able to take on the skills learned and use them in his working life as a builder.

Tarkine Challenge - Shelterbox Trek

Date: Monday Oct 16, 2023, 12:00 am

Explore the Tarkine’s remote and rugged landscape over five days while raising funds to support the relief work of ShelterBox Australia. You can provide urgent aid to families displaced by conflict or natural disasters by raising funds for emergency shelters and tools to help them rebuild their lives.

To raise these important funds for ShelterBox Australia, you will join a team of like-minded supporters on an extraordinary trip to the Tarkine - a wild and ancient rainforest reserve in Tasmania’s north-west. The Tarkine’s landscapes are impressively diverse. From the verdant temperate rainforest, to the ocean’s roar against the craggy coastline, to the spectacular views on Mount Donaldson, each day will provide its own challenges and its own unique rewards.

Join the team to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable families and discover the spectacular secrets of Tasmania’s Tarkine.  Click on the link for details and registration.
