THE ROTARY CLUB OF NORTHERN YORKE PENINSULA AT A GLANCE
Here at The Rotary Club of Northern Yorke Peninsula, we know that sometimes all it takes to make the world a better place is a little support. Since our founding in the early 1900s, our Club has been striving to make a difference. The core of our efforts is to support Rotary International's worldwide projects while supporting Domestic and Local Charities. We raise funds from within our Community through a number of means.
We are a Club of 26 strong and are always looking for new members to join us in these endeavours. If YOU are interested in becoming a member of a world wide service organisation, use the messaging service available at the "contact" button on the top page to send us a message or look us up at the monthly market. We also have a facebook page. Look us up there as well. We meet weekly at the Kadina Bowling Club, on the corner of Hallett street and Doswell terrace, Kadina at 6:00 for 6:30 PM for a dinner meeting.
Working in the community.
Over the years of it's existence, the Rotary Club of Northern Yorke Peninsula (formerly the Kadina Rotary Club) has done many practical tasks within the Community. Shown below are a few of the most recent.
One or our many Market Stalls.
Shelter Shed Construction along Walking Trail from Wallaroo to Kadina.
KNITTED WOOLENS FOR CHARITIES
We collect items made by the Knitting groups for delivery to Rotary's "Donations in Kind" division.
HOMELESS PERSON'S ABLUTION BLOCK
Built utilising local Contractors and with grants from Rotary District 9500, South Australian Government and Club raised money. Sited at Kadina Salvation Army Complex.
WALLAROO TO KADINA WALKING TRAIL.
Starting as a Bi Centennial project, we have now almost completed a 10 Km. trail that gets used daily by both walkers and cyclists. Club members raised the required funds through working bees and the sale of scrap steel which had to be removed from unused fencing and posts along the now abandoned railway corridor. The Copper Coast Council helped us secure the track and sealed the final surface.
HOW IT STARTED.

MORE OF WHAT WE DO.
WALLAROO MINES BAND STAND REFURBISHMENT PROJECT.
This is the old Wallaroo Mines band-stand that was converted into a football club change-room after the band ceased to be. It was then later transported by road to the Farmshed site on the Kadina to Moonta road. Our Rotary Club members cleaned up the old building, removed the doors and the cladding that had been added to convert it into the change-room, made up replacement timber work, re roofed the building and repainted it back to original colours.
WE WELCOMED THE MELBOURNE CUP TO KADINA ON ITS WAY AROUND THE COUNTRY.
