Operation Christmas Child – Love in a Shoebox project –


Many thanks again for the wonderful generous response from the Rotary Club of Attadale members who contributed to the project. Together with the Bicton/Como Uniting Churches we collected and assembled 205 boxes plus $1708 towards freight costs. A tremendous effort was made by all involved. Thank you for the many ways you helped, bringing much joy and blessings to these little ones at Christmas time in the knowledge that people do care.   Special thanks go to to Phyl & Peter for the collections            



2009 RI Convention in Birmingham, England, 21-24 June

Be a part of history and celebrate the 100th Rotary convention, which will take place in Birmingham, the heart of England!



If you haven’t been back to Birmingham since the 1984 convention, you may not recognize this former industrial town. Now a lively canal city known for its outstanding shopping and dining, Birmingham — or Brum, as the natives call it — underwent a dramatic facelift in the 1990s. The transformation resulted in a modern, more pedestrian-friendly city that retains traces of its medieval and Industrial Age roots.

Download the convention booklet for more reasons to come to Birmingham in 2009. This 24-page booklet also contains registration, hotel reservation, and Host Organization Committee forms.

Register early for the convention to take advantage of special pricing!

First deadline: 15 December 
Second deadline: 31 March
