online Meeting 23/03/17 DGE Mark Wallace visit
After 38 years in print journalism, including four years as Editor of Rotary Down Under and 20 years at The Canberra Times, Mark Wallace has retired to concentrate on his impending District responsibilities and to take up the challenge of expanding his photographic hobby business.
He spends much of his time between his club and professional Rotary roles talking to clubs all over Australia on Rotary's public image and the role each Rotarian plays in that image.
In 2012 he led a Group Study Exchange team of four journalists to the United Kingdom, the first step in his master plan to indoctrinate the world's journalists – one by one if necessary – into the wonderful ways of Rotary.
Mark is a member of the Rotary Club of Bowral-Mittagong but before moving there in 2012, was twice president of the Rotary Club of Crows Nest in Sydney and is a former member of the Rotary Club of Canberra City. He is a Paul Harris Fellow with five sapphires, mostly because he is also a proud member of the Paul Harris Society.
Although divorced, Mark has been engaged to the love of his life, Fran, for more than 15 years and they are currently living happily ever after in Colo Vale, near Mittagong in the Southern Highlands of NSW
During our online meeting we listen to Sheree who is a Director of Microboards Australia and is based in Canberra. She is the mother of a young man with a complex disability. She has a powerful personal story that many families can relate to and enjoys sharing how she went from being a tired single mum that saw no future for herself or her son to working with a Microboard and building a life for him that is embedded in his local community where he is happy and thriving. Her 15 years as a teacher and university lecturer has given her excellent skills in speaking, teaching, advocacy and mentoring.
Microboards are proven way of safeguarding the quality of life for people with disability even when parents are no longer hereRead more...
Applications for NYSF 2018 opened on 1 March 2017. The official closing date is 31 May. The applying students are asked to nominate a sponsor club. Hopefully students will go direct to their preferred club, but it is very likely that in May and June, I will be asking clubs to sponsor an orphan applicant. If I approach you to sponsor a student, it will because that student lives in the geographic region your club covers or at least attends a school in that region. If I am aware that the student has a previous connection with a particular club, for example through RYPEN or Interact, I will always direct them to that club.Read more...
WHAT IS THE PROJECT?
In partnership with the World Peace Association, the Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin has taken on an ambitious project of building a World Peace Bell Pavilion within the Canberra Nara Peace Park on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. The Canberra World Peace Bell will provide a destination in Nara Park to remind us that we want a peaceful World.
We already have our World Peace Bell. It is carefully archived in the Australian War Memorial until we construct a pavilion to house it.
We are asking for your help to build the proposed pavilion that was designed by Lauren and Fred Kasparek. Lauren is an architectural student at the University of Canberra while her father Fred Kasparek has been a practicing architect for over 28 years in Canberra.
Still need Major Financial Partners to support the project. To help please go to https://canberrapeacebell.org/partners
WHAT IS A PEACE BELL?
RYLA student Fatmata speaks to the Club about her experiences at the latest RYLA course in Canberra.
Do you have what it takes to become a dynamic leader and change not only yourself but the world?
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where you develop your skills as a leader while having fun and making connections.
What are the benefits?
Connect with leaders in your community and around the world to:
- Build communication and problem-solving skills
- Discover strategies for becoming a dynamic leader in your school or community
- Learn from community leaders, inspirational speakers, and peer mentors
- Unlock your potential to turn motivation into action
- Have fun and form lasting friendships
RYLA events are organized locally by Rotary clubs and districts for participants ages 14-30. Depending on community needs, RYLA may take the form of a one-day seminar, a three-day retreat, or a weeklong camp. Typically, events last 3-10 days and include presentations, activities, and workshops covering a variety of topics.
Your community might host a RYLA event for secondary school students to hone their leadership potential, for university students to develop creative problem-solving strategies, or for young professionals to learn ethical business practices.
How can I get involved?
RYLA participants are nominated by local Rotary clubs. Contact your local Rotary club to find out more about RYLA events in your area, how to apply, and any costs of getting involved.
Are you a member or alumnus of Interact, Rotaract, or Rotary Youth Exchange? RYLA can reconnect you with Rotary. Attend a local, regional, or international RYLA event to continue building your leadership skills or volunteer as a peer mentor.Read more...

General Secretary and CEO at Rotary International
We are close to eradicating a human disease for only the second time in history. A global public-private partnership has reduced the poliovirus caseload by 99.9% over the last 30 years, but there’s still plenty of work to do.
Even before we reach that milestone, the knowledge and infrastructure built to fight polio is being repurposed to take on other global challenges.
Fewer than 40 children were paralyzed by polio in 2016, the lowest number in history. This is a dramatic decrease from the estimated 350,000 cases per year in 125 countries that the world saw in 1985 — the year that Rotary International initiated a worldwide effort to eradicate this terrible disease.Read more...
