Tim's bike ride for the homeless

19th May 2018 - LONE RIDER UPDATE: 

2,000 kms under his belt, Tim fills us in on his daily plan as he waits for the beautiful morning sun to dry the damp grounds and prepares to make his way to his next destination...

Tim is currently cycling alone from Melbourne to Albany, Western Australia, in hopes of raising awareness of homelessness and funds to help accommodate them as part of our Lone Ride for the Homeless Campaign. Total ride 11,000kms.

DGE Bronwyn Stephens on the Rotary International Convention

Getting off a plane in one of the busiest airports in America to be greeted by Rotarians in Fluoro vests was very unusual. This Rotary World Convention we were arriving at was to be Rotary on steroids throughout. Over 130 countries were represented, with over 40,000 Rotarians attending, and so many of them from African and Indian nations. Hundreds of Filipinos, and 26 Aussies from District 9800. Registering for the convention at the airport made life easy and that set the tone for the hospitality.
