IMAGINE ROTARY is the Presidential Theme for 2022 - 2023, chosen by Jennifer Jones from Canada - the first female Rotary International President. 

It is her call to Rotarians to dream big and take action: 

"We all have dreams, but acting on them is a choice.  Imagine a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference". 


The logo theme was designed by Riki Salam, an Australian artist and graphic designer.  The circle, in Aboriginal culture, signifies our connections to one another.  The dots around it represent people.  There are seven dots to represent the seven areas of focus for Rotarians around the world.  The circle and the dots together become a navigation start - our guiding lights.

The solid line underneath represents a digging stick, used when doing hard work.  It represents a tool for Rotarians to use to get things done. 


The colours - green, purple and white are not necessarily connected to Indigenous culture. They can be interpreted a number of ways:

- Purple stands for the eradication of polio, green for the environment, and white for peace - the core mission of Rotary

- Alternatively, they are the colours of the women's movement - known as 'Green, White and Violet' ... or  'Give Women the Vote'. 

We are People of Action - Upcoming Events

People OF Action IN action

Our International Fundraising Lunch 

Sunday 29th May at the Italian Club in Rosebud, was a great event! 

The purpose was to raise funds to purchase two Sky Hydrants that will guarantee clean water for communities in the Philippines.


Thanks to Pat for the idea, to Past President Libby, the committee members and helpers who made the day possible.

It was a good turnout, great food and a good program - and all in a good cause! 


People of Action give in a number of ways - their time to volunteer, their funds through fundraising efforts, and their support to assist others in need. 



That's called 'really making a difference'. 


Here's how our Club has responded to recent needs:  

The Russian Invasion of Ukraine - donation to Rotary's Shelter Box for emergency shelter and other emergency aid

The recent floods in Queensland and NSW - donations to BlazeAid, volunteer-based organisation that works with farmers and families in rural/regional Australia following disasters, and through RAWCS Australia (Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd)

Mental Health Research - Australian Rotary Health for a research project

Fight Parkinson's - supporting our member Judy and husband Ian

Scholarships for local people to access tertiary education to enable them to participate in the workforce - Caroline Chisholm Foundation (Chisholm Institute) 

Local Young People at Risk - Fusion Mornington Peninsula 

Polio Eradication for once and for all - Rotary's Polio Plus program

Student Mentoring Program - a new initiative with Rosebud Secondary College

Transport for Disabled Children - answering the call from Rotary District 9820.
