SOCIAL EVENTS

We organise social functions for all our members so we can enjoy each other’s friendship; this could be theatre visits, small trips away (We recently saw about 20 members travel to Jimbour Station for the “Opera Die Fledermaus” staying overnight in Dalby.) We organise short historical walks through parts of Brisbane that are very interesting. Christmas Parties and event nights are always fun with entertainment from within and outside the club.

We are part of a Rotary District of 50 clubs that organises an annual conference focusing on a small amount of Rotary business and generally a lot of entertainment!

This year’s conference in Toowoomba was a hoot! Next year we are going to Roma – not everyone goes and there is absolutely no obligation to attend.
