The Leongatha art and photography show is organised by the Leongatha Rotary Club, one of the 31474 such clubs in 165 countries throughout the world which, together, form Rotary International.
Rotarians form a global network of business and professional leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and international projects, including educational, health and understanding. Rotary was one of the prime movers in the “Polio-Plus” campaign that has been taken up by the United Nations Children's Fund in an effort to eradicate polio throughout the world. More than 450 million children will receive oral polio vaccine this year as part of this program.
Rotary celebrates over 100 years of service, while in November 2016 the Leongatha club will celebrated 64 years of service in this area. Clubs in this district combined to construct Rotary Centenary House, a live-in facility at the Central Gippsland Hospital for families of patients undergoing treatment at the hospital.
Any Rotarian will be pleased to talk to you about Rotary and its work.
