The Hands on Project is a RAWCS sanctioned activity and the Seymour Rotary Club recently donated $500 to the project.


On Sunday the 21st of January, President Ron and Fiona McCarthy attended the Alexandra Town Hall where ten prosthetic limbs were assembled. Each limb took 2 hours to compete which included providing the club details so that the recipient can communicate with the club directly in the future.


During the ten years of fighting in the Vietnam war, a lot of the bombs dropped did not explode, which led to children in Laos, Cambodia and other countries trying to profit by retrieving the metal. Quite often this resulted in handling live ammunition which would explode and damage their limbs. Hence the need for prosthetics.

Rotex has been a long time coming in our Rotary District, 9790. There has been a select and dedicated group of past exchange students who have been working to create Rotex as a bonafide club in the District. As of these past couple of weeks, all the hard work has paid off! We have become an official Rotary Alumni Association, and the first Rotex club in District 9790.
5 years of past exchange students L-R: Jack Kadaoui (2015), James Richardson (2014), Nicola Gates (2013), Rachael Feldtmann & Gab Jeffs (2012), Sarah McNamara (2011).

Rotex is a Rotary alumni association that exists to establish and maintain a common bond among Rotary Youth Exchange alumni, as well as to provide past exchange students the opportunity for involvement in Rotary service directly relating to Youth Exchange programs. Rotex is open to all former Rotary Youth Exchange participants who have successfully completed the program, including long term and short term exchange.

PDG Philip Clancy in conjunction with our district ARH representative Rosemary Freeman is strongly supporting the RSL's PTSD campaign 'Sharing the Anzac Spirit'.

Clubs are encouraged to purchase the pull up banner pictured and display at club meetings.

Making a difference is an expression you hear all the time about Rotary, the opportunities that we have and the things that we do.

What kind of a difference each club and each Rotarian chooses to make will always be their own decision. But we are united in our organization and its common principles: our insistence on ethics and our commitment to Service Above Self.
In Rotary, we know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone.  It is the principle on which our service is based, and it is true at every level of Rotary.

At the end of my year as DG the legacy that I wish to leave our district is ‘Happy clubs, Happy District’. If we can achieve that by working more collaboratively together, between clubs and across the district, then the exchange of ideas, the friendships created and the goals that we achieve can only lead to happier more engaged Rotarians.
If this is achieved then this can have the added flow on effect of increased membership which obviously will have a greater benefit on the world we live in, locally, nationally and internationally.

Let me emphasize again that the year ahead of us all is to make it Rotary’s year to shine.
It is the year all of us have committed to dedicate to service through Rotary. 
It is Rotary making a difference by building stronger and more active clubs that serve in better and more lasting ways.
It is believing in a Rotary that is recognized for the good work it does — a Rotary that will continue to grow, to endure, to go from strength to strength — making a difference to our communities, our countries, and our world.
That is what we will achieve together this year.

Rotary: Making a Difference.
