March with Rotary at Pride    

Bronwyn Stephens, District Governor Elect

Jason Ball and I have been Rotary mates since Jason joined RC Prahran two years ago.

As 2017 Victorian Young Australian of the Year he is impressive, but once I got to know Jason's back story I was even more impressed. He is an ambassador for Beyond Blue because he spends countless days in schools telling his story of being welcomed as a gay footballer in a generally homophobic environment.

As I journeyed with him I promised to stand beside him in the Pride March. That was before the plebiscite and marriage equality. The Pride March represents inclusiveness for all aspects of our community. I believe it is right that Rotarians walk with families, the police, and other organisations. We will wear rainbows and a heart over our heart as we are honoured to be led by Jason.

Please join us on 28th January to show that Rotary is welcoming of all aspects of society in our non-religious and non-political service organisation. To register to join us

Exchanging Vocational Skills    

By Peter Frueh, District Governor 2017-2018

As we return from our holiday break, with family and friends, we restart the next step of our Rotary journey. 

Hopefully we are refreshed and are ready to make our own Rotary resolutions for 2018? Maybe to offer to help an existing project or start a new one? Maybe to seek out an interesting speaker? To look for a community organisation to partner with? To bring along a friend who might be wondering what all this Rotary stuff is about? Make a note to yourself and follow up when you can.
