At convention find breakouts tailored to you

Take away bold ideas about how to improve your club experience, your community, and the world from breakout sessions at the Rotary convention in Singapore.

Heat is on for urban planners

As temperatures rise, cities transform heat islands with tree cover, “cool pavement,” and other adaptations.

Food of the future

Breadfruit, a starchy fruit long a staple in the tropics, is attracting new interest globally as farmers and scientists search for crops that are hardier while still nutrient dense.

Memorable experiences await in Singapore

2024 Rotary Convention will deliver inspiring speakers, unforgettable cultural events, delicious food, and invaluable personal connections

Fifty years ago, the first Earth Day was held on 22 April 1970, launching a wave of action to protect our environment, including the passage of landmark environmental laws in the United States. Other countries soon followed suit. Every year since the day has been set aside to focus on mobilizing for action to protect our planet.
As people of action, Rotarians have been shaping the conversation on the environment for years, from addressing climate change that threatens entire food systems to fighting pollution that clogs our air and water. Rotarians are well-suited for the challenge. They use their connections to find creative solutions and take action to safeguard our vital resources. 
The Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG) assists Rotary clubs, districts, and multi-districts in building awareness, inspiring action, and planning service projects that focus on environmental sustainability, awareness of climate change, and actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
 
 
 
 
 
 
Today is World Polio Day when we are reminded of the devastating impact that this disease can have on children. It’s a day when we raise funds and awareness so that more children don’t experience the paralyzing effects of polio. To keep protecting children everywhere, we need your help.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Today was an important and special event for the Rotary Club of Whyalla- Meeting No 3410 the 23-24 Changeover.  Where we moved from IMAGINE Rotary to CREATE HOPE in the WORLD.
  Incoming Secretary Larisa White Emceed the day, Rotarian Ben Johnston acknowledge country/  Raffles were won by Mellissa Zubrinich, Lesley  Hartup, Jane Owens, Ben Johnston, and Brendon Jackson. 
 
President Brian Herd inducted President-Elect Mic Russo.  Mic went on to introduce his board for the incoming year.  Larisa White - Secretary; Keith Sichler - treasurer; Brian Herd - Immediate Past President and Rotarian Benjamin Johnston - there was also Vinnie Russo in the photo and i am sure he will keep the incoming board in check.
 
 
 
Well-known Whyalla identity Steve Storic visited us this week to give us an update on his new venture following the Snapper Fishing Ban introduced in November 2019 for three years.  Steve formerly operated a charter fishing business but was forced to close when the ban was introduced. Steve, being the resilient and enterprising person he is, changed his focus from fishing charters to Boat Tours and is now catering for families rather than sports fishers.
 
He is working in partnership with Cuttys Tours to introduce new and innovative tourism experiences involving catering for people with disabilities. The Whyalla Boat Tours business is a much more affordable business to run as it does not carry the overheads of his former charter business.
 
Giving the vote of thanks is Rotarian Michele Sellars
