Welcome to the Rotary Club of Caboolture

 

Are you interested in helping your community?

 

Not just the local community but the world wide community as well?

 

If the answer is YES, then why not join us in helping others?

 

So far in the 2017/2018 Rotary year our club has achieved nearly 5,000 hours of volunteering, what a wonderful effort that you could be part of.

 

Caboolture takes its unusual name  from the aboriginal word for carpet snake `Cabul-tur` and we think we have an unusual Club. It was established in 1954 and has a great record of service to the local community and for international projects through the intervening years.

Please take the time to check out our exciting website and you will see how we intend  to carry on this service into the future, hopefully with your assistance. Do take the opportunity to come along to a meeting with our great mix of men and women to share the Rotary experience of service, fellowship and fun.

Yours in Rotary

President 2018/19

October Meetings

 

Tuesday 2nd  Bobbio Restaurant – 6.00 for 6.30pm start

Tonight we will be hearing from John Simpson who is from Circle of Men, a group that focus on men’s health & fighting men’s depression.

They are a weekly companionship program where dedicated volunteers gather in groups to support and nurture men living in Australian aged care.

The Circle of Men is just that –  men coming together in a circle, sharing their songs and stories, their joys and sorrows, their hopes and fears. It’s life sustaining for all concerned. It is also a powerful practice that greatly restores and rejuvenates our elders who all too often find themselves alone and isolated at this most vulnerable stage of life.

We will also be hearing from the Burpengary Men’s Shed’s Rodney Hansen.
