Right on the cusp of the new Rotary year, on 30 June 2019, the Rotary Club of Tarawa was Chartered as the newest Rotary club in District 9920 and further boosted the Rotary presence to a large area of the Pacific. The story of their formation and how Rotary is now represented in Kiribati is compelling reading.
Ruth Cross, a member of the Rotary Club of Melton and former President of the Victorian Kiribati Association has returned home to Kiribati after many years in Melbourne. She has been a familiar face at Donations in Kind and at the Moonee Valley Next Rotary Generation group meetings. She has been keen to re-establish Rotary in Tarawa, and has been strongly supported by Assistant Governor Jenny Foster and Stephanie Woollard.
