Welcome to a new Rotary Year

"Serve to change lives" is the RI President Shekhar Mehta's theme for Rotary Year 2021-22.


We held our club changeover on Wednesday, July 14th, at the Hideout wine bar in Alice Springs.
There were 47 Rotarians and guests, including the Mayor, local and state politicians and, via Zoom, The District 9510 Governor.
