Our Australian Rotary District Governors have agreed to establish a central fund into which all Australians can donate to support the victims of the devastating bushfires ravaging our country.
A link to the fund can be found on the main page of the RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service) website:

The Sydney Rotary Club has pleasure in advising that the Vice Regal couple Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC, Governor of New South Wales and Mr Dennis Wilson, will Host the launch of the 2021 Centenary Celebrations at Government House, Sydney. 

As you would be aware our Rotary organisation will be celebrating 100 years of being established in Australia and New Zealand and a number of clubs in both countries have created a committee of the willing to start the journey and countdown to the Centenary Celebrations in 2021.

Many different events and activities are being worked on and it is the intent of the committees to enrol all Rotarians from around both countries, where practical to participate and show their pride and enthusiasm for our great organisation and capitalise on the opportunity to highlight the great work we do.

With this in mind the Governor of NSW will be hosting an event to commence the launch in NSW of the Centenary Celebrations. We have been advised by Government House there is a limit to the attendees and on that basis, it will be a first in selection. For the clubs of NSW there is an allocation of 50 places. That means that the first 50 clubs to register a Representative and pay $500 towards the Centenary project will receive a ticket to the event.

The Bobbo has a great reputation within the cycling community. There are four different routes which riders can select according to their abilities. Serious cyclists return year after year to challenge themselves on the longest rides, while social cyclists will enjoy the shorter routes.

All the routes go through some of the most stunning bushland and waterfront scenery in the Greater Sydney region. Some 2,500 riders are supported by around 450 enthusiastic volunteers who, along with the Police, SES and St Johns, make it one of the best-organised and safest events on the cycling calendar.

We’d really appreciate any help you can give us to provide maximum publicity for the Bobbo. Please consider entering a team from your Club. Teams of five or more who raise over $1500 are eligible to access the Corporate Hospitality Marquee for free refreshments, snacks, beer and massage.

The funds raised by this terrific event helps Lifeline year after year to save lives through their Crisis support counselling. Please lend us your support for 2020 as we try to break through the $1 million fundraising milestone!

We look forward to your support and if you have any questions please give me a call. See too
