Peter Smith., a member of the Rotary Club of Wahroonga, celebrated his 70th birthday in January.

We also have two scarves and two ties signed by RI President Sakuji Tanaka that we’ll give away.

It's not a logo, more of a symbol that is being sought for our new District starting on 1 July. 

But it is a competition, and it closes on 28 February, with a prize on offer for the club of the winning member.

No rules except the design must reflect the district's slogan 'from the mountains to the sea', the colours must reflect these geographical areas, and the Rotary wheel must be included and meet RI protocols.

Check out a more detailed blog

So get cracking, time is running out.
