The District has just said farewell to Kate Reinhart, a delightful young lady from District 6330 in Ontario Canada. Kate is pictured under the tree planted by Paul Harris all those years ago in Civic Park Newcastle.

A big thanks to the Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise who hosted Kate during her stay while she undertook project ranger work with the Department of Conservation and Wildlife.


In June, we will welcome candidates from District 2450 in Egypt and District 1070 in England. The Rotary Club of Wallsend-Maryland and Newcastle Enterprise have kindly agreed to host Sarah and Hannah. Both young ladies will be available as guest speakers during July to mid September.


Applications are currently open for outgoing candidates aged 18-30, and all we ask is that they have undertaken some training towards a vocation and are prepared to commit for a minimum of 2 months and up to 6 months vocational or humanitarian work.
