What a weekend, 10 and 11 November 2012 was. District 9830 in Tasmania has four Rotaract Clubs that span across the state. The above mentioned weekend, three of those clubs (Tamar Valley, Central Coast & Sandy Bay) joined together for our first 9830 joint celebration. Central Coast hosted the event, an epic car rally and scavenger hunt, concluding with an 80's party and sleepover at the Payton Park camp grounds. With challenges like 'take a picture with Road Kill' and 'sing 1 minute of Karaoke at the Forth Pub,' we knew we were in for a weekend of laughs. Many of us have some very funny stories to share. Thanks to Central Coast for your hospitality and the effort that went into the organisation of the weekend. The next statewide event will be hosted Tamar Valley and that will be held on February 2nd 2013.
The Rotaract Club of Northern Suburbs has been working hard to generate more public awareness and recruit members. They has a membership night on 23 October which was a success.
Rotaract Club of Sandy Bay BBQ for Cupcake Day held on Saturday, 25 August, at Woolworths New Town. The club sold cupcakes and held and BBQ to help support the RSPCA. A very successful Cocktail Party was held on Friday night 5 October at the Q Bar, Macquarie Inn. Sandy Bay Rotaract have been enjoying themed social nights throughout this quarter.
Rotaract Club of Tamar Valley Saturday the 4th of August was an exciting day in our club's history. Some of our members were up at the break of dawn, preparing for this momentous occasion. To be honest, it was just a BBQ held at our local Harvey Norman store, but we were excited because it was our first day to test our very own, brand new Rotaract BBQ. We had a very busy day cooking up some sausages and hamburgers, and made a fine profit by the end of the day. Our mascot bears, Shoelace and Hero were in attendance, and we had to convince several small children that unfortunately they were not for sale! All money raised from this BBQ is contributing to our ongoing sponsorship of two young women in the Philippines, to enable them to complete high school. Our club was busy in October, with a Rotabattle event of mini golf and many of our members lending a hand at various charity events. Two worthy causes that we'll be assisting this month are the Take Flight: Raising Our Wings Gala Ball, as well as Run for a Wish for the Make A Wish Foundation. We've been cooking quite a few sausages lately. We've had another chance to feed shoppers at Harvey Norman with our second BBQ in two months. This money also contributed to supporting school students in The Phillipines. We also had the chance to raise funds for our club by providing lunch and snacks for around 160 primary school students at a soccer carnival. Special shout out to Nick, Ian, Callum and Hannah who worked super hard on those two days.
Rotaract Club of Central Coast We have just hosted the Rotaract social weekend and what a brilliant weekend thatwas… we are lookingforward to the nextone in February 2012. The Boscobel dinner, held in September, was a great opportunity for members of the Rotaract Club of Central Coast to showcase their talent. Rotarians were treated to a four course meal, live entertainment, and of course, great company. In October we supported the Rotary Health and Well Being Expo, and the Beyondblue Gala Dinner, run by the Rotary Club of Ulverstone West. We are now working with Ulverstone West Rotary with the The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Christmas luncheon which will be held in early December to provide support to grandparents who are the sole carers for their grandchildren.
From a simple beginning in 1968 Rotaract has become a strong international service club for young men and women (ages 18-30) who have a commitment to their communities, be it at local and/or international levels.
Sponsored and supported by a local Rotary club, members of Rotaract seek to develop friendships and professional contacts that will enable them to address the physical and social needs of their communities. At the same time members develop their own personal skills and knowledge. As part of an international network of Rotaract clubs, members can reach well beyond the local scene through projects, contacts and conferences. The district Rotaract chairman and committee are available to organise new Rotaract clubs, assist communication between Rotary and Rotaract and plan district-wide training for Rotaract club officers.
Rotaract meetings are held bi-monthly. It is strongly recommended that there should be a Rotary presence at each of these meetings, attendance being a "make-up" for the visiting Rotarian. Regular liaison between Rotary and Rotaract by way of shared meetings and agreed projects is encouraged.
Rotaract has its own Standard Club Constitution and is regulated through the Rotaract Statement of Policy.
