How did the push to rid the world of Polio start?

Watch this excerpt of Dare to Dream.

Then spend some money and buy a copy. It will cost you $US25, but $18.75 of that will be a donation to Polio eradication, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will add double that amount, so your donation will be worth almost $57. That is good value for money!

RYLA is a 7 day program sponsored by Rotary Clubs to develop leadership and social skills in young people aged 18 – 26 years. It assists those who are destined to be future community leaders or business leaders.
This year the camp will be held at Luther Heights, Coolum Beach.
See the RYLA Brochure here.
The cost for this week-long leadership training seminar is $850. The speakers are high profile leaders of their field in the community, and many observers have rated the cost of this course on a commercial basis at around $5,000. It is definitely good value for money.
If you are a young person in this age group and feel that you would like to take part in this program, please contact us.
Are you an employer, or do you know a young person who would benefit from this program? Contact us for more information.
Be quick! Applications close on 3 April 2018.

This morning I joined the Traralgon Central club for an informal 3 km walk followed by breakfast at a local restaurant.It was a lovely experience, despite the fine, light rain.Past President, Maree spoke about a couple of their projects as we walked:* “Give a Damn; Give a Can”, which collects non-perishable food for those experiencing difficulties during the harsh winter;* Hostel near hospital: the club raised the funds to build several small units to support the families of patients (often with cancer or other chronic / terminal illness).Club members continue to maintain the units and yard, with one of the members heading there from breakfast.A very interesting and pleasant bunch.Cheers Jo



Good Evening Rotarians of the Pine Rivers Rotary Club,


As you may know, my name is Joshua D’Souza and I am now a Year 12 student at St Benedict’s College. I would like to share with you my exciting experience in the annual National Youth Science Forum for 2018. NYSF Session A was a highly extensive 12-day program in our nation’s capital, attended by over 200 high-achieving and well-rounded Year 12 students. This program made a platform designed to provide a broader understanding of career pathways and interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics or STEM, for interested students. NYSF has empowered students to explore the vast horizons of the scientific world through interactive workshops, meet and learn from renowned research academics and professionals, and become inspired by the current and future developments in internationally recognised research facilities.


Pine Rivers assists with a Defibrillator at Dakabin High School

Our club was asked if we would contribute to the supply of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to Dakabin State High School.

As that school is one which we regularly support, we decided to research the project. We became aware that another Rotary club in our District was able to supply an AED for a cost much less than the school had been quoted. It was also clear that a suitable method of storing the unit would be needed, as well as ongoing maintenance. Our club offered to supply the AED and a metal storage box at the significantly reduced price, if that could be regarded as our input to the project.

This offer was accepted and the end result is an AED available at the school.

If other groups wish to purchase an AED for their community, please contact the Rotary Club of Pine Rivers or the Rotary Club of Kingaroy. We will be glad to help, and advise.
