Rotary’s 110th Birthday Bash

Rotary International  is 110 years old on February 23. To celebrate this milestone, a ‘Birthday Celebration’ was held at Pinky Flat on Sunday evening, 22 February organised by District 9520. It was a ‘hot’ evening in more ways than one. The temperature was in the high 30’s but this did not deter the festivities.

The Holdfast Bay City Concert Band entertained the party goers and the food stalls kept everyone very well fed and watered.

An ‘End Polio Now’ balloon walk to the Telstra Plaza (Adelaide Oval) was led by Rotaractors from Thebarton Rotaract Club carrying the official flags. The State Governor, Hieu Van Le and RI President Gary Huang addressed the gathered Rotarians prior to the release of the helium balloons.

Bagpipers then led the group across the footbridge carrying glow sticks and luminous bracelets to conclude a fun night.

What a great result for the ‘End Polio’ project. All 400 tickets for the TRF film night at the Piccadilly Cinema on Thursday 26 February were sold out a fortnight before the film screened.

See the District Dispatches for details of the Golden Grove RC, Gawler RC and Port Augusta RC screenings.

While Australia is currently Polio free, it remains only one plane trip away from us. 2010 saw cases of Polio worldwide reduced to 1,352, a 99% reduction since starting!  Read more…
