From the horrors of leprosy to the challenge of “a world without leprosy”, Ruth Brogan, from The Leprosy Mission Australia, (LTM) powerfully brought members up to date with the prevalence and treatment of leprosy. The goal of The Leprosy Mission is to eradicate the causes and consequences of leprosy and to restore and empower those whose lives have been affected by this disease. People affected by leprosy still suffer enormous stigma and marginalisation through discrimination, injustice and ignorance, and because of this many live in overwhelming poverty from which there is little hope of escape. Their fight against leprosy is far broader than just curing the “disease” because of the far–reaching social implications that it causes.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of a worthy enterprise and in particular to encourage and foster The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by every Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

For good food, good fellowship And the opportunity to serve through Rotary …we give thanks.
