Welcome to our club website!
 
We hosted our Club Changeover on Friday, June 26th.
It was a combined physical and online meeting with Rotarians and guests from interstate also joining via web-conferencing. Physical distancing with social cohesion (not social distancing), which is necessary in these times.
 
The new Board, above, are (Left to Right): Virginia Loy (President Elect), Neil Ross (Treasurer), Nick Tyllis (Secretary), Clive Hale, PORCAS (59th President Of the Rotary Club of Alice Springs) and Michael Potts (Immediate Past President).
 
Our new Directors are:

Rotary Foundation: Rob Burgoyne
Membership Director: Dominic Miller
Service Projects: Steve Peers
Public Image: Nicole Walsh
Club Administration: Vicki Hale, FLORCAS (First Lady Of the Rotary Club of Alice Springs)
Sargeant-at-arms: David Letheby
 
The new Rotary International President is Holger Knaack and his theme for the year 2020-21 is "Rotary Opens Opportunities".  It's true. Rotary is open to anyone who wants to create positive change in the World.
See the short clip below as RI President Knaack discusses his theme.
 
 
Fellow Rotarians and visitors.
 
The World Coronavirus pandemic has put a dampener on any mass gatherings. It would be irresponsible of our Club not to do its bit to help slow the transmission of the virus.
 
In response, the Bang Tail Muster Parade and the Henley-On-Todd regatta will not go ahead in 2020, however, we look forward to physically running both events in 2021.
 
Please stay tuned as we plan to have a virtual Bang Tail Muster 'Parade' on our Facebook page. Entrants will submit video clips of their entries.

Physical meetings resumed.

We've resumed physical meetings as of our changeover date, June 26th.
We've been lucky in the Northern Territory, with no community transmission of COVID-19.
Our interstate borders are scheduled to open in mid-July, for us to enter the unknown waters of living with a current pandemic, while interacting with each other.

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.
