Rotary Club Set to Soar

Thursday, August 02, 2018


Last Sunday members of the new Rotary Club committee met for an extended planning day and are excited to announce that new projects are in the pipeline.

We now have an active Facebook page and invite the community to become “friends”. We are keen to receive comments about the page and suggestions for activities or projects we can take on to build a stronger community. Our Instagram page is also up and running, and we’re updating our local website at http://rotary.nf/home


Some ideas that have already come up include helping the Boomerang Bags project, supporting the move to make Norfolk Island a Bee Sanctuary, producing a book tracing the history of the Norfolk Island club including documenting all the club’s projects, and a Kite Festival to support local mental health initiatives. We’re also considering other projects that could strengthen our local economy by providing a forum to support new ideas through seed funding and connecting new enterprises with mentors.


The committee is keen to extend our humanitarian service and one idea we’re exploring is an activity in support of the Helping Hands Program. Not only is this activity a lot of fun, it’s also providing much-needed prosthetic hands to victims of land mines. This has already proved to be a great activity with several other Rotary clubs around the world.


Rotarians around the world are united in their commitment to a set of four “tests” that gives us all a common ethical guide for our personal and professional relationships. The guiding principles of the Four-Way Test are:

  1.  Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Apart from the work of making our world a better place we also want to have fun, so we’re keen to get involved in activities such as fundraising for our community members who need help facing personal crises, or combining with other service clubs for social gatherings.

The Rotary Club of Norfolk Island meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 5.30 PM at Bailey’s Restaurant. We love having guests who want to find out more about the club and consider becoming active members, so give us a call on 51645 (Vere) or 52112 (Kate).
