About Us
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Moe is a volunteer service organisation whose members donate their time and resources to help others in the local community and throughout the World. Our main objective is  "SERVICE ABOVE SELF".
Our Club's commitment to Service Above Self is channelled through the five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. Namely, Club Service, Community Service, International Service, Vocational Service & Youth Service.
We also help to eradicate polio worldwide, support  by providing disaster relief and provide assistance to youth locally and globally as well as working hard to make a difference in our community.

The Club is known for its enthusiasm, camaraderie, fellowship and commitment to serving others. 

Rotary is where people help people and achieve extraordinary things.
A Rotarian is one who simply has the desire to do something to help others. 

   
 
Stories
The Rotary Club of Moe recently met at the Rotary Botanic Gardens for their first meeting of the year.  It was great to finally meet face to face.
President Di Harrison was especially pleased to be able to present Certificates of Service Awards to three members who have reached significant milestones within our club.
Dave Wood - 30 yearsJulian Yeatman - 45 yearsPeter Kingsbury - 10 years
 
The Rotary Club of Moe wish to express appreciation to the Latrobe City Council who recently offered Minor Equipment Grants to community groups to purchase fixed equipment.  Our club was successful in receiving a $2000 Minor Equipment Grant to purchase a portable defibrillator.
Without the assistance of the Latrobe City Council offering these grants, many community groups would not have sufficient funding available to purchase items that assists them to continue working safely within the community.
Rotarian Barry Dunstan is pictured with our new portable defibrillator which will be available for use by Club Members and members of the public when Rotary is working in the community.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Moe has been presenting the Pride of Workmanship Awards to students since 1996.  Each year, students who have been nominated by their teachers, receive this award in recognition of their personal commitment and perseverance shown throughout the school year.
 
Our club would normally invite the students, parents and school staff to attend an evening function, to celebrate and publicly acknowledge the achievements of the local school students. 
 
However, this year due to COVID restrictions, we are working individually with each school to ensure the students are presented with their award either at their graduation or awards ceremony at their individual schools.  Pictured below are several of the students with their award.
 
 
The Rotary Club has sponsored the Rotary Junior Community Award program for the past seven years and engages Grade 6 students in four main areas of endeavour, to be completed over the school year – Community Service, Physical Recreation, Social Experience and Skill Development. The students, with the aid of parents and teachers, design a non-competitive program they feel they can achieve and keep a diary of their progress.
 
This year, due to COVID restrictions, the students had to find alternative ways to participate and complete the program .  
 
Traditionally the schools would be guests at our regular club meeting to provide a presentation of their work, but in these Covid safe times, students presented their work via a zoom meeting. Glowing reports came in of activities in wood working, cooking, gardening and Brekky Club. Chair of Vocational and Youth, Robin Noakes, noted that despite the adversity, the kids had really put a lot of effort in. He was pleased to see that the long tradition of Elizabeth St and Albert St students participating in the Award program had been upheld. The students, staff and parents should be proud of their achievements.
 
As restrictions have now eased, members of our club recently met with both Albert St and Elizabeth Street Primary Schools to present the RJCA certificates.
 
 
In the 1900s, malaria was pandemic in the world, bringing unimaginable burden of disease in all countries.  However, due to a range of initiatives across the world, progress is being made to address this deadly disease.  Fifteen years ago, malaria killed a child every 30 seconds.  As a result of programs set up in response to the Millennium Development Goals, deaths have fallen by 60 percent.  The aim of the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals is now to reduce malaria cases and deaths by a further 90 per cent by 2030.
Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) is a volunteer-run organisation working to eliminate malaria.  RAM was started in the early 1990s from a proposal by Dr Brian Handley of the Rotary Club of Chatswood (NSW) who was concerned about the surge in malaria incidence after the discontinuation of DDT-based malaria control programs. RAM was launched in 1995 in Tulagi, Solomon Islands by the Rotary Club of Honiara and Rotary District 9600.  The primary focus of RAM has been the distribution of insecticide-treated nets to vulnerable populations.
