We can all make a difference
North Balwyn Rotary Club is part of a 1.2 million strong global organisation that gives service throughout local, national and international communities. 
 
We’re dedicated to making a difference and our projects take us from gardening for local elderly people in need, to changing the lives of impoverished villagers in Vietnam.  
 
Giving service is one of the more rewarding and healthful activities you can do. Everyone has a skill. Your skills, knowledge, energy and enthusiasm are a valuable resource. Why not use these through membership of Rotary and achieve extraordinary outcomes for the benefit of others.   
 
Membership is open to women and men of all ages who have a desire to serve the community.  If you think you'd like to be involved please contact Ian for a chat on 0419 359 920 or email info@rotarynorthbalwyn.com.au

Rotary International Theme
Barry Rassin, President, Rotary International has chosen the theme "Be the Inspiration" for the 2018 - 2019 Rotary Year.
 
In his words:  "To me, Rotary is not only a model but an inspiration.  It shows us what is possible, inspires us to reach for it, and gives us a path to act - and to Be the Inspiration to our world."
 
 
Rotary Four Way Test
Rotarians live by the Four Way Test:
 
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
