The Rotary Club of
Bayswater Inc was chartered on 7th April 1961.
Members are community
minded business and professional people who believe in the ideals of Rotary which involves
“Service above Self”. Numerous fundraising projects over the years have allowed us
to raise over $500,000 to assist deserving individuals, families, schools and needy causes both
locally and internationally.
All money raised
by Rotarians is used for charitable causes and our voluntary manpower means that no money
raised is ever used for administrative purposes.
Knox Art Show has been going for 35
years and is now our major fund raising event each year.
International has had two major projects over recent years –the
eradication of polio around the world and the eradication of malaria. The
Polio Eradication Project received a boost a couple of years back when the Bill Gates
Foundation provided $US100 million to complete the task. Rotary International, through its members, is
matching this amount as part of the deal.
Members over the years
have included men and women of all ages and walks of life.
All prospective members who believe in the ideals of
Rotary are welcomed as new members of our Club. As the oldest Rotary Club in this
area, we are always seeking new ideas and membership growth to help us meet our goals.
Help us make history for future generations
- come and join us as a member this year.
