Welcome to the Rotary Club of Geelong Central Inc A0024770R
 
 
Geelong Central is the only breakfast club in Geelong, meeting on Tuesdays 7:30am-8:30am. 
 
In the Covid environment we are being flexible on frequency and use of video conferencing. Please call 0438.826.610 if  you would like to come along and see what we are about. 
 
Physical meetings are held at Volunteering Geelong, 192 Myers St,  Geelong. 
 
All members of the local community will be warmly welcomed.
We acknowledge that our nation is enriched by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the oldest surviving culture on the planet, and the millions of people who have made a new life here.
 
A 61 year old Rotarian from Berry, New South Wales will attempt to become the oldest person to paraglide from near the summit of Mount Everest in March 2021.
 
The former police rescue officer is using the trip to raise funds for Rotary to help eradicate polio. The highly infectious viral disease can cause paralysis and largely affects children under the age of five in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
 
Ken Hutt will use oxygen during the climb and will be supported by an expedition team of 10 others. 
 
Only one other person is known to have successfully completed the glide from the mountain in Nepal
"Ken's passion for polio is amazing. To be able to combine the three loves of his life is sensational," fellow paraglider and Rotarian Anthony Sandenberg said.
 
 
 

Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For over a 100 years, internationally Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end. 

In April 2021 we celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Australia.  Watch this site for announcement of events that you can attend.
