Club News
The Rotary Club of Pine Rivers was chartered in May 1959. We are planning a celebration event for our 60th anniversary on Saturday 25 May 2019.
During the past 60 years the club has conducted a large number of projects and been involved with many people. The club has hosted and sponsored many Rotary Youth Exchange students, sponsored students to RYLA, NYSF, RYPEN, and many more. We have hosted Ambassadorial Scholars and Rotary Peace Fellows.There are also all of the past members and their families who have been involved with the club.
 
We are seeking to contact as many of these people as possible, so if you know of someone, please let them know. Give the club this information by using the contact link on this web site.
 
Seating will be limited at the function so you are asked to contact us sooner rather than later if you would like to be a part of our celebration.
 
 
NYSF - National Youth Science Forum - is a programme for students keen on science. It is operated by Rotary clubs in Canberra and Queensland and runs seminars in Canberra (ANU) and Brisbane (UQ) in January each year.
 
For this round our club had the privilege of sponsoring two students, one from Pine Rivers State High School, and one from St Benedict's College. Prior to January they attended a club meting and spoke about their aspirations for the course, and what they hoped to gain from it.
 
 
They returned to the club recently and spoke about the course and how it had affected them.
Each year, as part of the Australia Day events, the Federal Dickson electorate calls for nominations from the community for a number of categories of awards. This year, our club was pleased to receive the Dickson Community Group of the Year Award.
Dickson Award The citation reads:
Rotary Club of Pine Rivers – Community Group of the Year
 
The 2019 community group of the year is an organisation that has worked hard for our district for many years, fundraising and providing services to support those in need.
 
One of their well-known services is a food van that has operated in the Pine Rivers area since 1994. The van is hired by organisations to assist with catering and has been a great asset for the community.
 
This organisation has also assisted a number of different causes in 2018 including fundraising to support villages and communities in need in Papua New Guinea.
 
Another fantastic initiative closer to home, was their charity golf day held at Wantima Golf Club in November 2018. This event raised over $47,000 for the Queensland Brain Institute. A phenomenal effort.
 
The event took place despite poor weather requiring it to be rescheduled from the original date at the last minute, effectively meaning the volunteers had to organise it twice.
 
These are just some of the achievements of this organisation over the past 12 months.
 
I am pleased to recognise the Rotary Club of Pine Rivers by awarding them Dickson Community Group of the Year for 2019.
 
Congratulations to the club, and sincere thanks to all the members of the public who have supported us in our fundraising projects. We appreciate your support.
At the end of 2018 the club supported the Wesley Mission Queensland Red Bag Appeal. Members were given red bags to take and fill with non-perishable food, toys, and other items suitable for less fortunate families over Christmas. Jo Mitchell, our Youth Service Director, managed the project on behalf of the club. She recently received this thank you from Wesley Mission:

As the sponsoring club, the Pine Rivers Rotary club congratulates the Kallangur Probus club on their 20 years of service to the retired people of our community.
 
Congratulations to all past and present members of the club. We wish you all well, and also for a successful club into the future.
