Friendship is one of the primary reasons our members join and stay in Rotary.
To help foster these life-long relationships,
their spouses, and Rotaractors opportunities to connect
ith one another while enjoying favorite recreational or professional activities.
64 unique topics of interests from tennis to wine appreciation,
marathon running to cooking, scuba diving to recreational vehicles,
Rotary Fellowships organize regional and international events, contests,
and meetings where their members bond
and build lasting friendships outside their clubs, districts, and even countries.
Every year, nearly half of these groups attend the RI convention,
exhibit in the House of Friendship,
and organize events to practice their favorite activities
and strengthen relationships with fellow members.

Rotary Club of Mundaring
Australia’s Future in Safe Hands
Pictured above, with Rotarian Jan Milburn,
are four inspiring young Australians
who addressed the Rotary Club of Mundaring at a recent meeting.
The four young people are Reuben, Marianne, Kira and Mereiki
who attended the Rotary Programme of Enrichment (RYPEN)
All are from local high schools, specifically,
Helena College and Eastern Hills Senior High School.
Each of the youngsters gave a short talk covering
their recollections of the camp and while each speech was individual,
they all contained a common theme.
This common thread was:
Uncertainty about what to expect, nervousness at the start,
the joy of discovering that they were capable of much
more than they had imagined,
the new friends that they made,
the fun that they had,
the skills that they learnt and not wanting it to end!
When closing, each of these fine young Australians
expressed their gratitude to the Rotarians and volunteers
who ran the camp, and to the club,
for giving them the opportunity to attend.
As each finished their speech, the feeling among the members and visitors was
“Wow, I would not want to follow that!”
But follow on they did,
each one as good as the other and all earned the admiration
of the audience for their clarity and confidence, leaving us
with the palpable sense that Australia’s future is in very safe hands.
