Celebrating Australia Day 2021 was slightly different than previous years - different venue and reduced crowd, but still a great celebration!. We were delighted to recognise and congratulate Eaglehawk Rotary's Citizen of the Year - Eric Smith. Eric's amazing contribution to our community over many years is outstanding, congratulations Eric, such a well deserved honour. The day was a great example of how easily our club is adapting to the changes currently being experienced - well done to all members for your planning, re-planning and outcomes - we really are part of a great club and so very fortunate to be involved in such a great community.

Eric Smith - Citizen of the Year for lifetime of community service

Former Eaglehawk CFA Captain, Eric Smith, who was instrumental in protecting the community on Black Saturday will be bestowed the honour of Eaglehawk Citizen of the Year for 2021

We Have a Winner - Great Grange Raffle 2020

Congratulations to R. Hargreaves (Ticket No. 54) a very happy winner of 10 Bottles of Penfolds Grange.  Thank you to all who contributed to this Club Fundraising effort.  Final tally still being calculated but a profit in excess of $9,000 is anticipated!  Our club recognises the huge efforts of PP John Jones for again giving this his all - a great outcome and a wonderful result for our club's funds available for our community and beyond.
It is with great sadness that our club acknowledge the passing of Past District Governor, Gordon McKern OAM.
Gordon’s contribution to the local community has been immeasurable over the years but from our club’s perspective we wish to recognise the enormity of Gordon’s influence and guidance for our members since he originally joined in 1976.  As a club member, board member, President, representing our club at District level to then the role of D9800 Governor in 1992/93.  It was during his role of DG that Gordon’s passion put the Rotary House Project on the map – his pet project as he often referred to it as.  Recently Rotary House again became a focus as it enters its next phase, this new development that again Gordon was ‘absolutely delighted’ to support.
Gordon’s support of the Rotary Foundation has long been recognised throughout the broader Rotary Community along with his outstanding willingness to support and further many Rotary causes.
Gordon has received many accolades over the years but the recognition afforded him in 2019 – the Rotary Service Above Self Award – was indeed very special, being only one of 100 awarded internationally in any given year.
Gordon we thank you sincerely for your devotion to the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk and the impact you had both locally and internationally.   We know you enjoyed your involvement, so did we – you will be missed.
Eaglehawk has many people who work tirelessly throughout the community addressing an abundance of needs. If you know of, admire and wish to highlight the work done by a member of our community then this is your chance to have them appropriately recognised for their efforts. Download your Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Nomination forms from the Menu item 'Citizen of the Year Nominations' at the top of this page and make sure those hard working, community focused people receive some recognition for their marvelous contributions to our wonderful Eaglehawk community. This is another community initiative brought to you by the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk.
