Red Shield 2019

Once again, the Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City fielded a strong team of five for the annual Salvation Army Red Shield Door Knock Appeal in the western suburbs of Brisbane last Sunday morning.  Keith Carl and Collin Myers drove groups of Brisbane Boys College boys who collected donations door to door.  Susanne Green, Michael Evans and Rod Thorburn provided administrative services at the college as the boys returned with their collections.

Clean Up Australia Day 2019

Sunday 3 March 2019 is Clean Up Australia Day. This event is one of the annual community service activities undertaken by members of The Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City.  We have registered Arnwood Street Park, Annerley QLD, with Clean Up Australia as the site coordinated by our club.

The club's motto is "Serving locally and globally to create positive, lasting change in the world".  We believe that Clean Up Australia Day is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to be involved in a community service which has an immediate and lasting impact on our environment. 

Everyone is welcome to join this event – Rotarians, Rotaractors, friends, family, work colleagues, potential members or anyone from the community who is looking for a positive way of showing we care for our beautiful city.
Registered volunteers are meeting  at Arnwood Street Park (near C&K Arnwood Place Community Childcare Centre) 21 Arnwood Place Annerley at 9:00am.

The event coordinator is Neil Dickson.

Lift the Lid Ball Success

Thanks to the Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City's inaugural Lift the Lid Ball, Australian Rotary Health will have several thousand dollars more to devote to mental health research.

Donations are still being received in the aftermath of the madcap night of outrageously fun Rotarians and Rotaractors and their guests.

The club's successful initiative was held on Saturday 2 June at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Chief instigator President Ross Humphries and organiser Lisa Bateson, backed by Tim Adikari and Neil Dickson, Mid-City brought together an evening of fine food and wine. The high quality 22-piece Queensland Youth Orchestras Big Band blasted off the night and kept the momentum going for the dancing. Long standing Rotarian and a director of Australian Rotary Health, Des Lawson, inspired everyone there to support the organisation's mental health research projects.

Generous donors provided prizes galore - for the best, worst and craziest hat (wearing a hat was mandatory), and for the well supported raffle (every winning ticket was purple!).
