A saying attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness", was the inspiration behind the RI theme for 2014-15 under the Presidency of Gary C.K. Huang.
Another Rotary candle was lit on Wednesday, April 11th, with the induction of Fiona Hartnett into the Rotary Club of Alice Springs. 
Welcome Fiona!
Rotary’s 2017-18 International President, Australia’s Ian Riseley, wants a trachoma-free Australia by 2021, Rotary’s 100th year in Australia. The World Health Organisation has a global goal to eliminate trachoma by 2020. Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. But it is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness. The work of the Australian Government, the Fred Hollows Foundation and Indigenous Eye Health to treat trachoma infections has seen rates in affected communities reduced substantially. But now, we need to ensure that hygiene practices and the community environments are improved to completely eliminate the disease.
Peter Schaefer has just shared a most amazing three-day experience, hosting the RI President Ian Riseley in Alice Springs on his official visit to the Central Australia region. The weather was marvellous throughout his visit and Ian commented daily on the ‘horizon to horizon’ expanse of blue skies.
