Currently, our main community project is our HeliDrop Event on the 8th July 2018, at the Byron Bay Golf Club. This is our major fundraiser together with our partner Westpac Rescue Helicopter. You can support this community project by purchasing raffle tickets online, see the link or logo. You can purchase Online Tickets until THURSDAY 05th July 2018.
The events starts at 10 am at the Byron Bay Golf Club and finishes at 6pm. 750 Golf balls which correspond to the 750 numbered tickets will be dropped from the Helicopter. The three balls closest to the pin win a prize. First prize is $4,000. The funds raise go to support the Rescue Helicopter and our work in the community, e.g. Bravehearts (prevention of abuse of children and is run in 10 Primary Schools and 5 Pre-Schools in our district), support for disadvantaged students at both the local Primary and High Schools and numerous other charities. For more information check our Project Website.
Welcome from our President
We welcome you to our website. Byron Bay is located at the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. The Byron Bay Lighthouse and the beaches of Byron Bay are quite popular with tourists and surfers. As Rotarians we contribute to the well-being of our local community, support national and international disaster relief and humanitarian projects, and run a number of Projects for the community in the Byron Shire. Our Club has a history of over half a century.
If you want to become a member or just want to visit us at our regular weekly meetings you are most welcome. Our meetings are held at 6:30 pm for 7:00 pm every Tuesday at the Byron Bay Services Club.
Our Club has an information board at Banksia Drive, Byron Bay that will be soon refurbished. If the Information Board would help you to let others know about your business then please contact Johnny Rugers (who has recently joined the Club) from “Shogun Signs and Prints”, see link , or us. The income generated will be used to support those in need in our community, nationally and when appropriate internationally, e.g. natural disasters such as earthquakes, cyclones, education, etc.
Every dollar that we receive through donations is used for its intended purpose and no fees are deducted from it.
We organise and participate in a number of projects. You will find out about most of them and our 50 years history on this website. Our Facebook News tells about our latest activities. You can download a Membership Application Form for our Club if you are interested in joining us. On our website you will find a collection of Links to Rotary International and other Rotarian Organisations to follow up.
We look forward to your next visit to our website or as a visitor at our Club meetings.
President 2016 – 2019
