Rotary Hawthorn

News

Rotary Hawthorn was founded on 24 August 1953 with 25 Charter members, under the Presidency of Ron Fowler and has earned a well-deserved reputation as an active, hardworking and fun-loving Rotary club.
Rotary Fellowships are international, independently organised groups of Rotarians, Rotarian spouses, and Rotaractors who share a common vocation or recreational interest. Rotary Fellowships give their members the opportunity to have fun, make new friends around the world, and enhance their experience in Rotary.

In the Indian Himalayas, children may no longer have to risk their lives simply getting to school, thanks to the efforts of one Australian woman.

This story by John Zubrzycki  was published by "The Age" on May 17, 2014 

Fellowship is one of the main reasons that Rotary came together at the beginning of last century. 

Although Rotary was deeply entrenched within the business community, the premise of Fellowship was an integral part of why people found Rotary an important part of their networking requirements within a business environment.

As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, Rotary has made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We are deeply concerned about the Ukraine crisis and need your help.
For many years, a highlight of the Rotary year for Rotary Hawthorn was the presentation of the Ron Carr Award, named in honour of Ron Carr who was President in 1981-82, having joined the club in 1965.
 
It was always easy to find Ron’s office, which was originally at 444 Burwood Road – just above the mower shop where a papier-mache Sir Robert Menzies pushing a mower was a well-known local oddity!
Hawthorn Rotarians have for some time supported indigenous health programs in the Kimberley in association with the not-for-profit Boab Health Services based in Broome.
 
 In 2018 our members arranged for foot care packs and urgently needed podiatry equipment to be used at the front line in the remote communities in north western Australia.
 
From this we learnt of a chronic situation developing with regard to diabetes related conditions.
