What is Rotary? Rotary is an organisation of business and professional people united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build peace and goodwill in the world. Rotary’s aim is to make the world a better place for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Rotary Club of Tamworth West is fortunate to have a sound and diverse active membership of some 70 plus members. These members are united in their dedication to raising funds and providing services to assist and help those in the local and surrounding communities less fortunate than themselves.
To this end Rotary Club of Tamworth West organises and participates in a number of local projects and fundraising services including, Midnight Basketball, Shannons Classic Motor Show and The Art Show. Funds raised are contributed toward many local and national causes including Youth Insearch, Billabong Clubhouse and Royal Far West to name a few.
As part of the process of serving the community the Club also fosters a great deal of fellowship within those members participating in the services and fundraising projects undertaken. The Club meets every Monday at 6:30 pm at the West Tamworth Bowling Club where members partake in an enjoyable evening which generally includes a meal, fellowship, volunteering for projects and tasks for the coming week/s and an interesting speaker from outside of the Club. Lifelong friendships are made within the organisation of Rotary.
In 2006 Rotary Club of Tamworth West celebrated 50 years of service to the Tamworth Community. In recognition of this milestone Club Members Bill Forrest and George Hombsch created a video of some of the memories and activities undertaken by the Club over this period. To take a walk through some of the history of the Club please take the opportunity to watch the video below.
Tamworth West’s sixth annual Shannons Tamworth Motor Show 14/15 May 2016
Our major fund raiser for the year has again been a success with visitor feedback this year being very positive re the extended layout, food, venue and organisation. The dinner on Saturday night with guest speaker and V8 Super Car driver Steve Richards also proved to be a great success.
There were a number of categories for exhibitor awards over the weekend. The two main awards were for the People’s Choice Award and Best of Show.
The People’s Choice Award was taken by Dave Parker, with his 1965 Mustang convertible.
Winners of the ‘Best of Show’ award at the Shannons Tamworth Motor Show, Linda and Graham Jones from Brisbane with their 1953 Ford F100 pickup.
The show is the major annual fundraiser for our Club with net proceeds raised to be distributed in coming months to local charities. Thanks must go to all the Club members who contributed many hours of their time to help make this a rewarding event for all.
