Rotary isn’t only about cooking sausages,
but we do have a lot of fun doing it and we are grateful to Bunnings, Parafield this year for helping us boost our fundraising!
Our success is due to using quality ingredients, freshly baked bread from a local baker, good quality sausages, freshly sliced onions and served with a smile!
All our Rotarians are Certified to Handle Food by the local Council, and we are always in demand at local events.
Pictured above are Yvonne, Delwyn and Raelene, part of the happy team, and at left, Past District Governor John serves a customer.

So even though they are delicious, WE DO MORE THAN COOK SAUSAGES

There’s so much more to Rotary than amazing sausages, but let me tell you why our sausage sizzles are important.
- The money raised goes toward worthwhile causes such as community projects and sponsoring youth programs
- It gives us a public place to tell people about Rotary and invite them to consider coming along to a meeting or an event.
- It is a chance for busy Rotarians to contribute to the community by giving a couple of hours of their time when other projects or events may be a little too demanding for them.
- It’s a chance for Rotarians to chat and get to know each other better, form better friendships, and come up with brilliant new ideas for the club.
