DIVERSITY in leadership is an important message Rotary Youth Leadership participant Lucy Stevens took away from the recent RYLA experience at Nunyara Conference Centre in Belair. The Rotary Youth Leadership Awardees participate in a 7 day conference centred around professional and personal development for future leaders aged 18 to 25 years. She was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge. Lucy is the grand daughter of Murray Bridge Rotarian Rob Smythe and wife Jan. Lucy was School Captain of St Johns Grammar School last year where her musical, academic, and extra curricular achievements culminated in accomplishing an atar of 97.3, receiving 3 subject awards, a merit and the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Lucy is an accomplished musical student playing piano, trombone and singing and has since leaving school been accepted into Adelaide University's Elder Conservatorium Chorale. She is currently at Adelaide Uni undertaking a double degree of Law and International Development. She has experienced RYPEN at Woodhouse in 2017, has achieved the 2018 Coromandel Rotary Award for Good Citizenship and joined the Rotoract Club at Adelaide Uni. Attendees were from a range of backgrounds, interests, cultures, faiths all adding to the experience. Diversity in Rotary and the community adds so much and plays a very important role.


Extract from “Rotary on the River Volume 2.” James R. Mason.
Report on 2004-2005 Rotary Year with President Trevor Curtis. Page 5.
“A highlight of the year was the commissioning at the Christmas function of “Harry’s Trailer”, a purpose built barbecue trailer built by Rotarians Ian Elston and Sam Cozens and mostly financed by the generosity of Harry Beauchamp in his 51st year in Rotary. The trailer proved to be a great asset to the club and making many catering functions much simpler to run.”
Over the past 16 years, Harry’s Trailer has provided reliable catering service for many Club activities, but time was due for a refurbishment.
During the Rotary Year 2020-2021, the term of President Simon Sickerdick, an opportunity to upgrade the trailer arose. The basic trailer has been retained, and with the provision of two new gleaming stainless steel/maroon powder coated steel “Heatlie” barbecue plates, including service shelves and warming drawers, plus new tyres on the trailer, and much cleaning, the Board has commissioned a new era of service for “Harry’s Trailer”.
The installation of the new BBQ plates, modification of the table supports, and the cleaning, was all carried out by Sam and Elizabeth Cozens, and this asset of our Club is now ready for use.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion-
At the International Assembly, during the introduction of the coming RY 2021-2022 Serve to Change Lives, the Life Changing RI President Shekhar Mehta, call on all the Governors of the Rotary International Districts the world over, to Grow Rotary More and Do More , and be a good example to be followed by their District Rotarians, as they Together Serve and Together Change Lives. In so Doing, he encouraged all to observe , Diversity, Equality and Inclussion.
As Rotarians are committed to the common desire to serve above self, we share a common belief in the Core Values of Fellowship, Service, Diversity and Leadership.
Diversity is one of Rotarians in Rotary's greatest strength. As Rotary reflects so many cultures, generations and lived experiences. Leadership in Rotary Service and even membership alone, enjoys the same equal rights, dignity, opportunity and participation irrespective of their gender, disability, minority, ethnicity, caste, beliefs and creed.
Equality- Rotary is Fellowship and Service. Every one is welcome to join a Rotary club. Men and Women regardless of differences in culture, background, political beliefs, status, and religion come together in the spirit of friendship to promote world peace, understanding and goodwill.
Inclusivity- in being a Rotarian, they become one big family in fellowship and service, Rotarians became a citizen of the world, and together become more friendly, intelligible, sympathetic and helpul to each other as they Serve to Change Lives.

Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
