The Supurunda Water Supply Project in PNG has been a benchmark project for Rotary.
In 2018 eight villages covering five culturally diverse groups agreed to put aside past enmities to ensure they could enjoy the mutual benefits of a safe, clean water supply. The resultant water system is now a common and enduring thread that, no matter what else happens, will unite them and will be protected by them for everyone to enjoy into the future.
 
 
With Christmas just around the corner, Mitchelton Rotary will be out and about in the community for our annual Christmas Hamper Raffle. This year we have themed our hampers "Lazy Summer Days" as we think we all deserve a  few of those this summer! Tickets are just $2.00 each, 3 for $5.00 or a book of 6 tickets for $10.00.
 
See below for all our locations and selling times.
 
 
 
The Mitchelton Rotary Club were invited back to contest the Barefoot Bowls Challenge with the newly formed Moreton Bay Region Cluster. Although Mitchelton are now in the Western Cluster we were welcomed back with open arms by our old friends from Albany Creek and Aspley.  It was great to meet the members of the Kippa Ring North Lakes Club even though they stole the trophy away from us.
 
It was a great afternoon of fun and fellowship and even the rather impressive thunder/hail storm couldn’t dampen our spirits.  We’ve been invited along again next year to have an opportunity to win the trophy back.  Thanks to all at Albany Creek for organising a wonderful afternoon!

 

Each year, the Rotary Club of Mitchelton coordinates the Blackwood street Halloween festival, however, in light of the current health crisis, this annual community festival, which is one of the most popular – and definitely the spookiest – events  on the northside of Brisbane has had to be postponed this year. 
 
 
Mitchelton Rotary Club has seen many challenges in its 50 years of community service, none more confronting than the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.  Throughout lockdown and restrictions the club has continued to support our struggling local organisations with financial donations toward their ongoing work in the community.

The Club were successful in securing a Rotary District Grant in March for a defibrillator for the Picabeen Community Centre.  Our then President, Sandy Maguire, made contact with the Mitchelton Ambulance Station to co-ordinate a training session on how to use the machine as part of the Presentation to the Centre.

We were finally able to turn this in to a reality with the presentation of the defibrillator to the Picabeen Community Centre on the 21st July 2020.  Dean Parham, Mitchelton Rotary Club President, presented the machine to Martin Turrell, President of Picabeen and Martin responded with a warming speech of thanks for the donation and recognised the important work that local community organisations do before, through and after Covid-19.
