Torquay Rotary’s Pets on Parade 2021 is now open for entries. We have great prizes which include a fantastic dog kennel, pet supplies and Veterinary services so now is the time to get your entry in.
If you would like to support us in raising funds to "End Trachoma" please follow one of these links:
We will be accepting entries and donations through until Wednesday December 8 with winners to be announced on  Monday December 13.
 
Australia is the world's only developed country with trachoma, an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. The World Health Organisation had a global goal to eliminate trachoma by 2020. Whilst there has been success in a number of countries, trachoma is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness.
 
 
 
Thanks to the Torquay Community for the overwhelming support of our Pop-Up Art Sale. We have SOLD OUT in only 2 Days with takings in excess of $4,500 so the Sale is now ended and the shop closed.
 
Thanks to all the Rotarians who assisted with the Sale, so all those who were rostered for tomorrow and Tuesday can now enjoy a couple of days offlaugh

The annual function for the changeover of the Club Management Team was held on 4th July. We were most fortunate to have both current District Governor John Clue along with Past District Governor Phil Beasley join us for the handing over of the Presidency from now Past President Jan Emmett to incoming President Michael Reed. It was a busy afternoon with the induction of 2 new members Martin Duke & Claire Slocombe and Paul Harris Fellows being presented to Marg Isom, Kelly Binyon & Michael Reed. Local Kithbrooke park resident Bev Close received a Community Service Award for her contribution to a recent End Trachoma Project.
