Hello and Welcome to Rotary Club Bali Canggu!
We are excited about our present state and activities related to our future. This year’s theme is “Have Fun and Get Things Done” and symbolizes who we are as a Club. We are only 3 years old and already have created and accomplished so much. We continue to provide our now famous NIPPERS Program every Sunday morning at Batu Bolong Beach. Teaching the young children how to enjoy and be safe at the beach is a lifelong gift. The energy and enthusiasm of the children as well as the adults is incredible. Our VP and Secretary Bill and Clare have joined a weekly Farmers Market also on Sunday’s to create community awareness of who we are and what we do as well as generate tidy weekly profits that enable us to support people in need locally.
We are very interested in working with the youth who are our future. We have a dedicated team working on Youth Services who support our Rotaract Club and will also be hosting the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leaders Awards) this year for the District. We have also laid the groundwork for a new Interact Club that will be started in the Canggu Community School as well as another group in the village. 2 new Interact Clubs towards the Districts goal of 5 new Clubs!
This year marks the 1st Annual Golf Tournament which will be held on October 19th at the magnificent Pan Pacific Nirwana Golf Course near Tanah Lot. This will hopefully blossom and grow as the years pass. This year’s proceeds will go to finance our project to create a Women’s Empowerment Center and Playground. We will also host a Halloween Party Fundraiser on October 30th with live music and Costume Contest and the recipient of that will be Yayasan Kerti Praja which is a local HIV/AIDS treatment Center. We had a great time supporting them last year at the Desa Seni Dinner and hope to build on that success and make it an Annual event.
Our next great project is to help 26 Families in East Bali get Fresh Water. The area is so dry the best bet is to catch and contain as much rainwater as possible. All of our Committee’s are full and busy and our weekly meetings our source of inspiration and fun. Please feel free to come down Tuesday Nights- 6 p.m. at Hotel Tugu on the Beach at the end of Jalan Batu Bolong. We would love you to be a part of our group while we “Have Fun and Get Thing’s Done”
Yours in Rotary
