Rotary Celebrates 100 Years Down Under
Redland Museum will host an exhibition featuring projects of the Rotary Clubs of Quandamooka Country.
Rotary in Australia and New Zealand are celebrating 100 years of service.
The exhibition will feature displays of historical projects undertaken by Clubs locally including The Rocks at Tingalpa Creek, the Santas displayed at Wynnum, Manly and Capalaba, jarjums yarnin’ literacy project at Dunwich, and the Lodge at Redlands Hospital.
Rotary in Australia and New Zealand started with the creation of four Clubs in Melbourne, Auckland, Wellington, and Sydney. From there, Rotary and Rotaract clubs were created everywhere across both countries.
The Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly and the Rotary Clubs of the Redlands are joining together to celebrate this important milestone in Rotary International’s history. They have combined under the name of the Rotary Clubs of Quandamooka Country. The first Club within Quandamooka Country was the Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly in 1954 and since then another 5 Clubs have formed.
Whilst at the exhibition, check out the fascinating Textiles displays, including Luis Filardi Carneiro’s blazer wore in 1989 as an exchange student from Brazil to Cleveland Rotary Club. Three decades afterwards, Luis returned on holidays with his wife and two children to Cleveland. He stayed and in 2019-2020 became the President of Cleveland Rotary.
Cost includes entry to the Museum to browse the many displays and artefacts.
