Hoppers Crossing is part of the Chirnside Cluster and we had several members and partners attend a special dinner to celebrate 100 years of Rotary Foundation.
President Des, PDG Julie, and AG Colin
Eight District 9800 Rotary Clubs joined together last night to celebrate the Rotary Foundation’s Centennial. PDG Julie Mason skilfully interviewed a panel of Rotary Foundation Alumni who gave wonderful insights into how their lives had been enhanced by Rotary. Rotarians, partners & friends from the Altona, Altona City, Hoppers Crossing, Laverton, Werribee, Williamstown, Wyndham & Yarraville Clubs enjoyed the dinner event.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
The Rotary Foundation helps fund our humanitarian activities, from local service projects to global initiatives. Your club or district can apply for grants from the Foundation to invest in projects and provide scholarships. The Foundation also leads the charge on worldwide Rotary campaigns such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Rotarians and friends of Rotary support the Foundation’s work through voluntary contributions.
