"I'm asking every Rotary club to plant at least one tree per member" - RI President Ian Riseley

Our Tree Planting Day is happening this Sunday commencing at 9am. We are asking all members and their families and Friends of Rotary to come together to plant 750 trees along the Werribee River near the Shaw's Rd bridge. 

For planting:

  • Bring a shovel and a rake.

  • Bring a pad or cushion to kneel on.

  • Bring your kids.

  • Bring your grandkids.

We hope to be finished around 12 after which we will have a BBQ lunch.

  • Werribee Rotary will provide the meat.

  • Members with 20 years+ service, please bring a salad.

  • Members with less than 20 years service, please bring a desert.

  • Bring a fold up chair in case the grass is wet.

For directions, follow the map below.

See you Sunday and don't forget to wear your Rotary shirt and cap.




The Rotary in Action event, to be held at the Encore Events Centre on Sunday 6th May from 10AM to 12PM, is a joint initiative between the four Rotary clubs in the Chirnside Cluster.

You are invited to join District Governor Peter Frueh and Anne and District Governor Elect Bronwyn Stephens and Mark for the District 9800 Changeover lunch at “The International” in Brighton on Sunday 3rd June.  

This year the Changeover will be celebrating our District and all that we have achieved together – Rotarians and Clubs, with assistance and support from the District Leadership Team. 

There will be fun, special projects and Rotarians honoured.

Entertainment will be supplied by our own sensational “Barking Dogs” with Sue Foley. So bring your dancing shoes.

Dress to impress but don’t feel the need to be uncomfortable.

In true Rotary style, there will be funding opportunities for two projects of $1,000 each. Submit a short, informal project plan, register a table of 10 before May 18th and be ready to claim the prize and announce the project to all our District Rotary friends. You could even gain support from other Clubs and possibly receive a Foundation District Grant.

IN BRIEF........
