Yes - my husband was in both Apex and then when we hit, was it 40, he went to Rotary.
In those days women did not attend these events, however nowadays they are I guess, not allowed to distinguish based on gender of a person!
He was in it for a long time, and we regularly had functions where the women also went along.
They did a lot of good...
My husband and I were in Rotoract when we were younger, in fact that is where we met. It is the junior chamber of Rotary. It was great to be able to help others as well as have a great time with other people my own age. Now I am a member of our local Lions club and have been for many years. Lions is the biggest service club in the world, and this year is our centenary of service to the community. Lions has many projects such as eye health, diabetes research, disaster relief, Bill Gates measles eradication worldwide, childhood cancer, drugs, the Read to Me program,stem cell research, spinal cord research, Gift a Bike program, Youth of the Year, and much more. Our club sponsors girls ' at risk ', the homeless in our area are well looked after, and much more. We get many requests for help from local families in need. Our club prefers to help people in our local area, and people within Australia, than someone in Africa . We do so much to help the community, so next time you see a sausage sizzle, think of what your money would be going towards. My husband has been asked several times to join Rotary, but he has had to decline. He and I are both doing way too much community work so don't have time for any more.
