"Of all the hundred and one ways in which man can make themselves useful to society, undoubtedly the most available and often the most effective are within the spheres of their own occupations"

Rotary Australia Day events around District 9800
Introducing our Rotary Theme for 2022-23

As is traditional at this time of year, Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones has announced the theme for 2022-2023 and it couldn’t be more fitting especially for Rotarians in our District. As one of the best calls to action for our leaders, Jennifer is emboldening us to Imagine Rotary and what’s possible for our clubs, for Rotary, and for ourselves. 

A Life of Service - PDG John Wigley

If you personalise the Rotary slogan “Service above Self” Past District Governor (PDG) John and Fran Wigley provide a perfect example. They have both been involved in Rotary for close to four decades and active in a wide range of projects and activities across District 9800 over 37 years.

Rotary Williamstown constructs Bird Hide

Rotary Williamstown has partnered with Parks Victoria and Friends of the Williamstown Wetlands (the FoWW) to construct a bird hide in the arboretum at the Jawbone Flora and Fauna Reserve, formerly part of the old Rifle Range in Williamstown. The Reserve features open grasslands, wetland lakes, a salt marsh, and a mangrove conservation area. More than 160 bird species have been recorded there.

100 Acts of Kindness in Bendigo

In 2021, when Rotary Clubs around Australia celebrated 100 years of Rotary in Australia, the Rotary Club of Bendigo celebrated this milestone with a grand gesture within their local community. Whilst many fundraising options were closed during the COVID pandemic the decision was made to continue with the planned 100 Acts of Kindness, an initiative first raised within Rotary District 9800, and enacted in 2021.
