The Rotary Club of Mill Point, chartered in 1986, is one of 33,000 such clubs in 210 countries. We have close to 80 members which makes us one of the biggest Clubs in WA.
Rotary Clubs are the working arm of Rotary. The President of Rotary International usually has a theme for their year in office and District Governors may pick up or add to that theme and encourage all clubs to participate. However, only a Club can make its commitments, and a current Club Board can only make commitments for its year.
In Western Australia the combined effort of Rotary Clubs over a short span in the 1950s inspired, organised and funded the School of Medicine at UWA. In 2005 the same effort led to the creation of the Cord Blood Bank, housed, operated and managed within the Red Cross facilities.
For administrative purposes Rotary International creates Districts identified with a 4-digit number, each headed by a District Governor. In WA there are two Districts. We belong in the southern one called D9465. The boundary with D9455 is roughly the Swan River, Orrong Road then east and north to Merredin and the Kalgoorlie region.
