The Club Hiking Stick Challenge – Raising funds for Australian Rotary Health

 DG Mina’s partner Larry is throwing out a challenge to all clubs. He wants you to:
  •  Design a hiking stick and bring it along to the Cowra Conference, 17-19 March 2023.
  • The sticks can be decorated using any design or method limited only by your imagination.
  • The attendees will be asked to vote for their favourite stick by putting in a minimum of a dollar donation per vote.
  • The stick that raises the most money will win a PHF for their club to award to an outstanding member of their community.
  • All entries must be available for sale to attendees.
  • The club whose stick sells for the most money will also be eligible for a prize.
  • All proceeds will be donated to Australian Rotary Health.
One entry per club.
So get cracking and see what you can come up with!
