The President's Welcome
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Brisbane High-Rise.
At High-Rise you’ll meet a vibrant group who look forward to our weekly meetings: together we work to support our community and make a difference through our ability to connect and engage.
We’re a breakfast Club and have been in existence for over twenty years. Our membership is a balance of men and women who work or live in the Brisbane city and surrounding metro area.
Our Club has about 60 members of the 1.2 million businesses and community Rotary networks around the world, whose members have given a commitment to meet regularly to exchange ideas, and volunteer in our communities and globally. Also our local Club is underpinned with the guiding principles from Rotary International.
In the past 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. We also brought a young woman out from Somaliland for extraordinary pro bono life changing surgery.
We support youth through a number of Rotary projects including the National Youth Science Forum, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Rotary Youth Enrichment Program and, for the first time in our club for many years, Rotary Youth Exchange Program. One of our local projects, Albert Park Flexible Learning Centre has received a district grant – and that will enable us to expand the ongoing work we do with that Brisbane inner city school. We also 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
