Our Projects

Projects

A major focus of project activity and fund raising has been for the development of the Dementia Unit for Warialda. This successful fund raising venture has resulted in a low-interest government loan being provided to Gwydir Shire Council, with construction well underway.

The Club has sponsored Warialda young people’s participation in District and International Rotary programs, and the club hosted a Youth Forum in May 2014 to further consider how best to serve the needs of our children and youth.
