Inspired by Diversity; Promoting Acceptance…
Last night, we were lucky enough to host The Group Intercity Dinner joining with members from the 6 Rotary Clubs. We focused on the theme, DIVERSE INCLUSIVE.
The Nakivale Rotaract Club in Uganda became the first Rotaract Club to be established in a refugee settlement in June 2017. Since then, they have undertaken amazing projects to improve life for newly arrived migrants and refugees such as neighbourhood gardens, donating resources to hospitals and a 52-week challenge where they’ll be implementing one project per week as recommended by their community.
The Adelaide Rotaract Clubs have come together to show their support for the Nakivale Rotaract Club as well as a collective donation. Keep up the amazing work Nakivale Rotaract! You are an inspiration to so many! We hope to work with you in future ☺ Enjoy the video! (Turn on closed captions)

My name is Damien Walker. I am the President of Salisbury City Rotaract Club for the year 2018/19, Rotary Be The Inspiration.
I am going to start off by providing some background about me and what Rotaract means to me.
I am 22 years old and currently, in the last few months of my Bachelor of Education, I major in Food & Textile Technologies and Religious Education. I joined Rotaract at the beginning of my degree, I was young and not really sure of my ability or who I was. I can say I was definitely eager I tried to beat out Past President Chris Mark for the role of Charter president.
It was through Rotaract that I discovered myself, broaden my personal outlook and developing into the person standing here with you today. Almost a shadow of the person who started 5 years back. I can, as a result, I now value experience in roles and value hard work more than ever.

June is Pride Month and Salisbury City Rotaract Club just wanted to let all our members, friends and followers know that no matter what your sexual orientation or gender identity, you all have a space in our club and you are all loved. To our friends in the LGBTQI Community, we stand with you and value what you offer.
We had the pleasure last night of hosting a Wine Tasting and Appreciation Evening, appropriately titled a WINEderful Meeting. Our members and friends were taken through an awesome selection of Red and White White from Bent Creek Vineyards. Thank you to David Garrick for his time and for sharing his knowledge with us. We are all now know about what to expect from particular wine and could competently select the right wines for our tastes when out at an important function, celebration or work dinner.
Rotaract celebrated 50 years this year and it was our pleasure to collaborate with all the Rotaract District 9500 Club and some key Rotarians to help out on a wonderful fundraiser and celebration. Here are the snaps. More celebrations and reunions to come soon.
“A few moments from our Rotaract 50th celebration last Friday night at Adelaide Town Hall when Rotaract was recognised in a Civic Ceremony for the work that past and present Rotaractors have done to help serve the community and the reception at Adelaide Pavillion where we looked back at past projects and milestones and also raised funds for the Zahra Foundation. It was also a chance for past Rotaractors to catch up, some years between seeing each other! A fantastic night was had, thank you to everyone who attended and organised the event to help mark this special occasion. #RotaractSA50” – District 9500
At this years Rotary District 9500 and 9520 Combined Conference, Our Club was awarded the 9500 Rotaract Club of the Year. Congratulations to all our members who are constantly going out of their way to serve our club and our wonderful surrounding community.
