In addition to a large contingent from the Rotary Club of Brighton, we sponsored students from Brighton Secondary College to attend the International Women’s Day breakfast at Crown Palladium last Wednesday.
Inspiring speakers, vigorous debate and delicious food were the order of the day as Rotary clubs across Australia and New Zealand celebrated International Women’s Day 2016.

It will highlight their participation in all areas of our community including local, national and international women’s issues. The event will also provide opportunities to learn about our community groups and opportunities to get involved.
