Welcome to the Rotary Club of Salisbury

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Salisbury, Queensland.  Rotary is a global network of 1.2 Million members who see a world where people unite and take action.  This in turn creates lasting change in ourselves, in our communities and across the globe. 
 
The Rotary Club of Salisbury offers opportunities for our members — and those interested in making a difference — to get involved. Through meetings, social events, and volunteer projects, our members learn about the issues facing our community and communities all over the world. We partner with local, national, and global experts to exchange ideas about potential solutions and to draw up action plans to respond. Along with these opportunities to serve, members also are able to regularly network, resulting in lifelong friendships and business connections.
 
Rotary International News

EVANSTON, Ill., USA – 25 June 2024 — Stephanie Urchick, member of the Rotary Club of McMurray, PA, will become the second woman to take office as president of Rotary International on 1 July 2024. During her one-year term, Urchick will lead the 119-year-old membership service organization in adapting for future success as Rotary’s 1.4 million members around the world develop and implement sustainable, community-driven projects that fight disease, promote peace, provide clean water, support education, save mothers and children, grow local economies, and protect the environment. More than US$5.5 billion has been awarded through The Rotary Foundation—Rotary’s charitable arm that helps clubs work together to perform meaningful, impactful service—to support these initiatives over the last 100 years.

In order to ensure that Rotary membership is a compelling option for those who have a heart for service and fellowship, Urchick is urging clubs to assess their strengths and areas for improvement while also encouraging them to embrace different meeting formats and membership styles as they work to mirror the communities in which they exist in terms of gender, age, culture, socioeconomic status, and more.

“Embracing different viewpoints and creating peaceful, welcoming, and inclusive societies is at the heart of Rotary’s work,” said Urchick. “As president, I will work with clubs to prioritize advancing peace by helping to create the conditions for stable and resilient societies in which people can thrive.”

This year marks 11 years since the club's Gallang Dhagun  Rotunda at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Brisbane's Southside. 
 
 
Located just across from the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee (QEII) Hospital overlooking Kessels Road, a Rotary Gazebo now known as the Gallang Dhagun rotunda sits proudly for the enjoyment of the community.
 
As part of the Rotary Club of Salisbury’s 50th anniversary back in 2012, the seed of an idea to build a rotunda for the QEII was formed and unanimously supported by all members. In September 2012, Paul Straka donned his project management hat and the idea began to take form. 
 
This major project was supported by the Club’s resident builder and the construction was completed in January 2013. The official launch took place on 22 January 2013 to the gratitude and appreciation of the QEII Hospital leadership and staff. To this day, Rotary Club of Salisbury continues to be involved with the Gallang Dhagun rotunda by helping with its maintenance and keeping it clean on a regular basis.
 
This year marks the 11th anniversary of the rotunda which has seen many emotions from the people who have rested there. Whether from the relief and joy of a loved one or the enervation of a hospital employee, the Gallang Dhagun has seen it all, proudly giving the community a brief respite.
 
In the coming years, the QE II Hospital will undergo an urgent need of expansion to meet the growing demands of the local population. The redevelopment will see additional beds, operating theatres, a new sterilising department and a multi-storey carpark. In fact, Pathology Queensland will also expand their footprint within the hospital to install a second analyser.
 
What does this mean for the Gallang Dhagun? Currently the plan is to relocate the rotunda so while it may not enjoy the busy view of Kessel Street, it will no doubt continue to provide recess to those who need it.
