The President's Welcome
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Brisbane High-Rise.
Our club has about 60 members of the 1.2 million business and community Rotary networks around the world whose members have given a commitment to meet regularly to exchange ideas, grow our businesses, share new ideas and volunteer in our communities and globally.
Rotary International gives us principles for all Clubs – anywhere in the world.
At High-Rise you’ll meet a vibrant group who look forward to our weekly meetings: together we work to support our community, influence agendas and make a difference through our ability to connect and engage.
We’re a breakfast Club and have been in existence for twenty years. Our membership is a balance of men and women who work or live in Brisbane city and surrounding metro area.
This year we’re especially excited to be recipients of an International Grant that will provide more support to the small Tanzanian school that has become a focus. Mamba already has a water tank and a new school room from our efforts – and we fundraise for it in a fun way.
One of our other projects, Albert Park Flex School has received a district grant – and that will enable us to expand the ongoing work we do with that inner city school.
We support disadvantaged youth and victims of family and domestic violence just to name some of our commitments. We share time together outside of Club meetings either in community work or having fun together.
Just as importantly our meetings are never dull – they’re meetings of a vibrant group joining together to learn, make connections and grow friendships. We’re together at the Polo Club at 7 for 7.30am start and we’re away by 8.30am.
Come along for breakfast one Thursday morning. Like others,
you’ll experience the strength of a vibrant Rotary Club and we hope, you soon will start
making plans to join us as a member.
I look forward to seeing you at a Rotary Club of Brisbane High-Rise meeting soon.
Yours in Rotary
