Rotary on show
Rotary in Western Australia has chosen to host their district conference in Rockingham this year, which will feature speeches, stalls and even a beach-themed dinner party.
The conference will run from March 20 to 22, at the Hotel Clipper and the Gary Holland Centre and includes 62 Rotary clubs from Perth right through to the south of WA.
The event is open to members of Rotary and to the general public, and will help to share what Rotary has achieved and why the club may be fun to join.
On the Friday there will be a welcome sundowner and an official opening ceremony, with the speeches starting the next day.
One of the speakers is Cam Calkoen, who was born with cerebral palsy and became a gold medallist and social entrepreneur.
Another is Reggie Lau, a member of the Rotary Club of Mill Point and deputy chairman of Global Hand Charity.
She visited Sri Lanka and convinced the local Colombo club she should work with them to help isolated villagers gain access to eye care and eyeglasses if they needed them.
These are just two out of a line of other speakers ready to share their experiences at the conference.
There will be tickets available for the event until March 8.
