Tim's bike ride for the homeless

22nd July 2018 - The Lone Rider Update: 

Tim has ridden 6315 kms of the 11,000km trip across Australia return. He is currently having his wheels repaired having made it safely and successfully to Albany.

Lyle was successful in obtaining a contact for Rotary Club of Albany Port (W.A) and they will hopefully provide some support of Tim, and Debbie when she visits, to spread the word of Tim's journey.

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

Thank you from The Currajong School

Thank you from RYPEN participants

RYPEN is Rotary Youth Program for Enrichment. Each year we sponsor one or two students to attend the weekend long camp. Below is a report from this years lucky sponsored attendees.

"Sienna and I were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to participate in a RYPEN camp sponsored by rotary. We felt quite honoured to have been able to represent our school on this leadership camp. It was a 3 day camp from the 27th of April to the 29th. We were divided up into groups of people that we have never met before and took part in many different leadership building activities. From scavenger hunts to challenging high rope courses, both Sienna and I have developed leadership skills which we will be able to implement in our daily lives.

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.
