A SHORT HISTORY

A SHORT HISTORY

We were chartered on the 21st November 1986 with 24 members, our sponsor club being the Rotary Club of Milnerton. Our first president was Allan Fraser and our first meetings were held at the Blouberg Hotel. Right from the beginning, we leapt eagerly into service to the community by becoming involved with Vaatjieplaas farm school and St Jospeh's Home for chronically ill children in Philippi. We also held a fund-raising Carols by Candlelight at the Bayside shopping Centre. In 1992 we proudly inducted Pat Strydom as our first lady member. 2009 saw the sad closure of our sponsoring Rotary Club of Milnerton, but events moved full circle as many of their members joined us.

RADIO BROADCAST ON One FM 94.0

TUESDAY 24 OCTOBER 2017
The Rotary Club of Blouberg has made one contribution of many to the Rotary International effort to eliminate polio when, on the 24th October our President Carl was interviewed by Kabelo Shomang on OneFm Radio on the Brunch Show.

Rotary members in Cape Town, amongst many others, are reaching out on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds and support to end polio – a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today. Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, contributing more than US$1.7 billion, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent to just 37 cases in 2016. To sustain this progress, Rotary International has committed to raising US$50 million per year over the next three years, which will be matched 2.1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. WITHOUT ACTION THERE CAN BE NO ERADICATION. Visit www.endpolio.org for more about Rotary and its efforts to eradicate polio.
