Hmmm, you ask yourself how I can help the community and provide a better place for all; and you search the web for worthy service club and find Rotary International. However, after investigating a bit further into it, you find that membership into a Rotary club is by invitation only and there is a requirement to hold (or be retired from) a professional, proprietary, executive, managerial, or community position.
 
This is far from the truth for the Rotary Club of Forest Lake, as we have a dedicated Membership Director who is incredibly willing to assist and guide you in joining one of the best service clubs on this planet. I’m a bit biased on this subject, as I do enjoy my Rotary and making people smile; simple isn’t it.
 
Hot of the Press
18 Oct 2021 - Membership Night
 
An information night telling you all about Rotary, with nibbles to boot. Join us for a night packed with informative presentations, or simple join us for some mate-ship, not forgetting the nibbles. Registration can be found at:
 
 
 
 
Just a quick note, the Kite Festival, which was to be held at the Polaris Wetlands on 10 Jul 2021 has been canceled, another casualty of COVID 19.
 
 
A rare to sight in see in todays climate, the Dragon Boat and Multicultural Festive was once again held at Forest Lake, and the attendance was well above what was expected. The Rotary Club of Forest Lake had to restock, ensuring that everyone was fed. It was also nice to see funds pouring into the project account account after so many events have been cancelled.

Councillor Angela Owen (Brisbane City Council, Calamvale Ward), the Rotary Club of Forest Lake and supporting community groups are hosting a free movie night at the Heathwood Park (140 Parkwood Dr, Heathwood QLD 4110) on the 13 Mar 2021. Ralph Breaks the Internet will start at 6:15 pm, with drinks, sausages, popcorn and coffee being available from 5:30pm. Bring along your pillows, blankets and your friends for a great time in the park.
 
 
With COVID 19 drastically restricting gatherings, it was an absolute pleasure to assist Councillor Angela Owen and her very professional team of volunteers in conducting this year’s Citizenship Ceremony at the Calamvale Community College. Every year, Councillor Angela Owen introduces a new and interesting facet into the ceremony; and this year, she did disappoint; welcoming all of the new Australian Citizens in their native language was impressive.
 
With the distances between every chair being measured, online attendance, temperatures being taken prior to entering the Calamvale Community College’s hall and the well organised check-in process ensured that the ceremony was safe as possible. All these additional requirements did not distract from a ceremony and was a pleasure to see that all attendees followed the additional safety requirements.
The Rotary Club of Forest Lake is currently meeting at Bostock House, Wacol, and Google Maps provides the incorrect location. Bostock House is located you just north of Mr Googles location on Ellerton Dr, adjacent to a large car park on the west side of road.

The Rotary Club of Forest Lake is back, and after a couple months of the COVID-19 Pandemic isolation, the club is extremely keen to shake off the ball and chain. If you are in need of fellowship, especially after being in isolation, and have an urge to help the community and those in need, The Rotary Club of Forest Lake is the what the doctor has ordered. We are small club, and we welcome all prospective and new members with open arms.
 
For kids whose education has been disrupted by domestic and family violence, the start of a school year can be especially stressful. The excitement of the excitement of choosing a lunchbox or bag to show their friends in the playground is just one more thing they’ll miss out on.
 
Another successful year for the Rotary Club of Forest Lake, with Immediate Past President handing over to President Jeffrey Jones.
 
 
Days prior to Cyclone Debbie making landfall, the residents and businesses of North Queensland were preparing for the worst; and hoping that they would be safe. However, with all their preparations, Cyclone Debbie still cut a path of destruction as it moved along the coast of Queensland. A week after Cyclone Debbie dissipated, the flood waters are now inundating many towns in Queensland and Northern New South Wales; causing grief, hardship, property damage and the loss of memories. Emergency Services and the Defence Force are providing immediate assistance; however, many will still require assistance in the following months and years. It breaks my heart to hear that a few residents of Queensland have just recovered from the last floods and they have been hit again; and with no property insurance and with families to look after, they will need our help.
 
How can I help? I hear you say. The Cyclone Debbie Rotary Appeal RAWCS Northern Region Districts (RABS) website is now available online at:
 
 
With the devastation caused to southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales, in the aftermath of Debbie; which is also now being felt in New Zealand, a donation would help those in need.
 
Thank you in advance in supporting the RAWCS Northern Region Districts Cyclone Debbie Rotary Appeal.
 
  
 
Please note that Club's meeting times
are now 7 pm for 7:30 pm start
Each year, thousands of young men and women participate in Rotary’s educational and New Generations programs, which enable them to develop new skills, serve their communities, and foster international understanding. But the experience doesn’t have to end when the program is over.

The District Conference was head at Roma this year. As they say, the Australian country always puts on a good conference; and the this year's conference did not not disappoint
