There are many events held across our District and by Rotary International.
The Peace and Friendship Conference held in Istanbul on 18 April 2015 attended by many hundreds of Rotarians and the resultant Peace Declaration were the catalyst for this project. Details of the “Peace is Possible” project are in the attached document and will involve Rotarians from Australia, New Zealand and Turkey undertaking a two and a half weeks long joint program.

Group Study Exchange (GSE) is a cultural and vocational exchange program for professional business men and women, aged between 25 and 40 years, and in the early years of their professional lives. Each exchange team is comprised of a Rotarian acting as the team leader and four specially selected team members.
This year we will be exchanging with District 6840 which serves southeast Louisiana, including New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It is proposed that the incoming team will arrive on 21st February and depart on 22nd March and that the outgoing team from our District will depart for the United States at the same time as the team from District 6840 and return 4 weeks later.
11-12th April, 2015
As many Clubs in District 9800 already know there has been fantastic support in the last two years from Clubs undertaking a 'Rotarians At Work Day' in April. ln the last two years Rotarians and Friends of Rotary have pitched in to complete worthwhile community projects. Whether it was refurbishing a park Rotunda, painting a picket fence, gardening for pensioners, renovating a facility for the homeless, running a Multicultural Festival or removing graffiti, District 9800 Clubs made significant contributions to their local area.
This year in 2015, two days, Saturday April 11th and Sunday April 12th have been prescribed as 'Rotarians At Work Days' for doing good in the Community. Whist that is of course the prime aim, unashamedly we want to be visually observed working 'out and about'. So this is also a very important PR opportunity. Please put out signage at your project sites and wear your High Visibility Vests or Rotary Tops and Caps.
