A Bit About Us
Alstonville Rotary is a non-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together highly motivated individuals to take action to better the world through humanitarian service. We are local business and community leaders who believe that no single action is too small, and no great idea is too big.
We are part of an international family of over 1.2 million Rotary club members in over 180 countries, allowing us a unique opportunity to stretch our humanitarian reach to parts of the world far beyond our hometown of Alstonville, New South Wales
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 6.30 pm at the Alstonville Bowling Club, with optional social evenings and interesting vocational excursions.
If you are passionate about creating positive change in this world, then we would like to invite you to come to one of our meetings as our guest. Please get in touch to arrange a visit.
Since being chartered in October 1972, our Club has developed a proud record of serving the local community and supporting a wide range of international projects.
Membership consists of a mix of individuals with a background in business, government, non-government organisations and the professions, many of whom are retired. While very serious about fund-raising and organising various events and projects with the aim of making a difference to the lives of others, we enjoy good fellowship and fun.
Although we raise funds to support local charities, our principal activities in this region include our extensive Youth Program, including several Rotary youth initiatives and until recently, the Northern Rivers Science and Engineering Challenge for local primary and secondary students. We also respond rapidly to those impacted by natural disaster, fund-raising to support those affected by bushfires, floods and drought; and internationally, via Rotary International’s partner, ShelterBox.
We have long supported Polio Plus, a program in which Rotary has played a leading role and is close to achieving complete eradication of polio from the world. And we are currently supporting Rotarians Against Malaria and the search for a malaria vaccine.
Locally, as well as promoting the region with this calendar, we are planning a major new event, the Northern Rivers Green Living Expo will showcase the latest in sustainable technology and practice and provide the area with a fun and informative day out. Our ‘Spring Fling’ gala dinner has been rescheduled for 22nd October, so put the date in your diary and get your tickets early!
