Rotarians celebrating a centenary of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand.

Celebrating 100 years of Rotary


16 Jun 2021

Blue Mountains City Council has joined Rotary Clubs in the Blue Mountains, to celebrate a
centenary of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand.

Representatives of Blue Mountains Rotary Clubs recently presented Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill,
with a ‘R100’ relay baton to commemorate the milestone of service.

“I love what Rotary contributes to our City,” Mayor Greenhill said. “They do great things for
humanity every day. We are lucky to have so many dedicated Rotarians, who display the
absolute best in community spirit, in the Blue Mountains.”

Rotary International District 9685 – that includes clubs in the Blue Mountains, Central Coast,
North Sydney, The Hills District and Northern Beaches – has been serving the local and
international community for many years.

Rotary District Governor David Clark said: “The local Rotary clubs would like to say a big ‘thank
you’ to those who have supported recent centenary celebrations across the Blue Mountains.

“As part of these celebrations, Rotarians walked from Mt Victoria to Glenbrook from 22 to 24
April.

A big red ‘Rotary’ bus has also been travelling around the City and visiting bushfire
recovery regions – including Clarence and Dargan. Rotary handed out vouchers for nurseries to
those who had suffered losses during the 2019/2020 summer bushfires.”
