We are a small and motivated breakfast club with members drawn from a wide range of vocations. Our goal is to serve our local community with a strong focus on youth. Our two primary activities are the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) which is an event for high school students held annually at the Museum of Australian Democracy and DreamCricket, which provides opportunities for primary school children with disabilities to play cricket. We enjoy the friendship and fellowship associated with Rotary service.

As part of the Federal Government’s Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Tree Planting Program, the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise will be planting trees and shrubs along the Molonglo River at Denman Prospect – we need your help.

  • When: Saturday and Sunday 1st and 2nd April 2023, 10am – 3pm both days.
  • Where: We are planting beside the Molonglo River near Denman Prospect. To get here, travel to the intersection of John Gorton Drive and Holborow Avenue in Denman Prospect. Continue driving north (in the direction of Coppin’s Crossing) on John Gorton Drive for another 700m and park in the carpark on the western (left) side of the road where you will see a large Rotary sign and a volunteer pointing the way to the planting site. Please walk the 300 metres down the track.
  • What to Bring: It is recommended that you wear a light long sleeve shirt, trousers or shorts, solid footwear, sunscreen and a hat that will protect you from the sun. If possible, it would also be useful to bring gardening gloves and a mallet/hammer. Refreshments will be provided for volunteer planters, but please consider bringing your own water bottle.

Interested? If you are community minded, love nature, want to help the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise to “green” Denman Prospect along the Molonglo River, and have some spare time on the weekend of 1st and/or 2nd April, please register on our website for your preferred date, 1 April, or 2 April. You can also register additional guests after registering yourself. Any questions? Please email Rotarian peter.mcdermott@bigpond.com

 Please advise visitor attendance or member non-attendance to Peter McDermott before 12.00 noon Tuesday every week
