  23. The Rotary Club of Blayney (D9700-Australia) completed fundraising on 23 February 2017 of a total sum of $A184,000 to fund a palliative care unit at Blayney Hospital. Contracts will be signed next week and construction completed well before end June. A project of this size can only be completed by a large degree of community support (Shire size 7,000), which was forthcoming as there is a recognised need for this facility in the local area. . This is a great result for not only Blayney Rotary but also for Rotary in general as it demonstrates that even small Rotary clubs can deliver real value for their community. This is a great way to celebrate the founding of Rotary in 1905.

    >>>February 23 is now declared as National Rotary Day! In Philippines

    At yesterday ’s session, February 22, 2017, House Bill No. 4500 was approved declaring
    “February 23 of every year as National Rotary Day and a regular working day.”

    This was based on the house bill 4500 by the committee on revision of laws approved by Rep. JULIETTE T. UY (former Rotarian) 2nd district Misamis Oriental and seconded by Rep. LEN B. ALONTE NAGUIAT of lone district Binan city . Author: Rep. GUS TAMBUNTING of 2nd district Paranaque City.

    This momentous occasion was made possible through the generosity of these invididuals:
    Congressional Spouse PP Emily Alvarez for her personal coordination among the offices in Congress
    PP Cristy Bersola for preparing the necessary communications to initiate the House Resolution
    PP Annie Shotwell for coordinating with the office of Congressman Gus Tambunting.

    This initiative brings renewed social consciousness and appreciation for the service and humanitarian efforts of over 20,000 Rotarians in the Philippines.

    Cheers to all Rotarians in the Philippines!
