The Rotary Club of Strathalbyn is once again teaming up with The Strathalbyn Tourism Association to bring the 2022 Strathalbyn Antiques and Collectables Fair (and other stuff) Weekend on the 20th and 21st of August.

The Strathalbyn Tourism Association is coordinating the fair with an exceptionally good value entry cost of $10 per day. This will give you entry to the Town Hall, the Show Hall, the connecting shuttle bus and the award- winning Gilbert’s Motor Museum.

The Rotary Club of Strathalbyn is excited to be hosting the ever-popular Sunday Treasure Market starting at 7:30am at the Strathalbyn Oval, Coronation Rd Strathalbyn.  Entry fee is $2.00.  (U16 accompanied by an adult are FREE)..

There will be more than 50 stall holders for visitors to browse through and food available from vendors around the oval.

Spend a day or the whole weekend in beautiful Strathalbyn. Enjoy the halls and Gilbert’s Motor Museum, the antique, homewares and specialty shops and the cafes and pubs. Come along and Find Something Fabulous!

If you would like to participate as a stall holder please email craigmaidment1956@gmail.com or 0438 166 528, registration is now open - but you must be quick.

The Great Duck Race - November 2022 - CANCELLED
With much reluctance, The Rotary Club of Strathalbyn has decided not to hold The Great Duck Race, in November 2022.  Coming out of COVID restrictions with still many questions regarding monitoring crowd numbers, we have made the difficult decision not to proceed with the event this year.  However, all is not lost - we will be doing a 'deep dive' into all things Duck Race, with a view to bringing the event back in November 2023 with a new look and new community feel.  We will be looking to partner with other Community Organisations to give the event a new look and involve as many groups as possible.  
If you club or organisation thinks they may want to be involved in organising and participating in this event with us please send your expression of interest and thoughts to secretary@strathrotary.org.au we would love to hear from you. 

Rotary and the United Nations have a shared history of working toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues around the world.

During World War II, Rotary informed and educated members about the formation of the United Nations and the importance of planning for peace. Materials such as the booklet “From Here On!” and articles in The Rotarian helped members understand the UN before it was formally established and follow its work after its charter. 

Many countries were fighting the war when the term “United Nations” was first used officially in the 1942 “Declaration by United Nations.” The 26 nations that signed it pledged to uphold the ideals expressed by the United States and the United Kingdom the previous year of the common principles “on which they based their hopes for a better future for the world.” 

 

Every hero has an origin story. “I was 10 years old when the entire journey started,” explains Binish Desai. It began with a cartoon called Captain Planet, an animated TV series from the 1990s about an environmentalist with superpowers. Desai can still recite the show’s refrain: Captain Planet, he’s our hero / Gonna take pollution down to zero! “That tagline stuck in my mind,” he says. “I wanted to do something to help Captain Planet.”
