Club News
Come and visit us at The Glenferrie Festival this Sunday from 11:00am. Learn about how Rotary membership can benefit you. Or buy one of our fabulous LightWalker walking sticks with a torch and help raise money for our Sierra Leone project. Looking forward to meeting you at the Rotary Glenferrie stall, outside 698 Glenferrie Road,  this Sunday from 11:00am!!
A new radio advertisement produced for the Rotary Club of Glenferrie, using a script provided by the club, will run on radio 94.1FM 3WBC commencing February 9th and running through until May 9th, 2024. The advertisements feature Rotarian Gregory Ross as voiceover.  PP Ian Salek generously shared the cost with the club to make the promotion possible. Click on the radio wave icon to hear the new radio ad, and click on 'Read more...' to see when the ads will run.
 
When you buy a LightWalker walking stick, not only will you get a high quality walking stick at an incredible price. You will also have contributed to the construction of toilet blocks and a sustainable water source at the Aladura Primary School in Sierra Leone, making possible the education of girls and through that, research has shown, helped reduce poverty in the world. All that in just one incredible walking stick: LightWalker!
It wasn't a formal meeting but it was still a lot of fun as Glenferrie Rotarians and friends gathered in the evening sunshine at the historic Yarra Bank Reserve Playground, site of the Rotary Centenary play sculpture, to share tasty BBQ delights, sandwiches, cakes, fruit, glasses of wine and very tall stories, and welcome in 2024.  It's good to be back!

Rotary membership helps you build lasting friendships, strong networks, additional skills and greater confidence.
Programs often start with just one motivated person seeing an opportunity and then making it happen with the support of Rotary's global resources behind them.
Rotary celebrated 100 years of making a difference in Australia and New Zealand in 2021. Join with us as we embark on our next 100 years of service to our community.
