Putting family first
Africa Men’s Football Carnival.
Recently the Rotary Club supported the Celebrate Africa Men’s Football Carnival. The theme of this Carnival was the elimination of violence of all kinds and the promotion of harmony and cooperation between community members.
Chief Minister’s Rotary Peace Prize.
The Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin has joined with the ACT Chief Minister to annually award the Chief Minister’s Rotary Peace Prize.
The 2018 Chief Minister’s Rotary Peace Prize is awarded to the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom ACT Branch of US$1,000 donated in their name to the Rotary International Foundation which is Rotary’s major international charity.
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) envisions a world free from violence and armed conflict, in which human rights are protected, and women and men are equally empowered and involved in positions of leadership at the local, national and international levels.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR MOVIE.
Edited during March 2018, this 11 minute movie shows the development of the bell from an idea in 2015 through design, fundraising to construction of the pavilion that was completed in February 2018.
