Networking... The opportunity to develop business connections was one of the two founding reasons Rotary was started in 1905 and it remains relevant today. More than ever, networking provides vital links in our personal and professional lives. Through Rotary people come together from all walks of life and business communities to help each other and collectively help others.
Friendship… The second reason Rotary started was to provide access to friendship and fellowship. This is one of our most basic human needs and is no less relevant in our increasingly complex and technological world.

The Australian Polio Register was established by Polio Australia in October 2010 to gather information on the numbers of polio survivors living in Australia today, whether or not they contracted polio in this country.
