We, in Australia, have been participants in IFCR through all of its existence. We are proud that the Melbourne Rotary International Convention was the occasion when the formal foundation of our Fellowship took place.
Since then we have enjoyed a continuous program of activities on all levels of IFCR, both international, national and local.
These meetings of our members have given us the opportunity to indulge in our passion for cricket, enjoy the friendship and fellowship of our colleagues and extend our Rotary service.
We want all Rotarians in Australia who are interested in cricket, either on the playing field or just as enthusiasts, to know that they can participate with us and gain the same benefits as present members.
It’s so easy to join us. All you need to do is to contact the national secretary, Michael Boyd. You can do this by mail to his address, Unit 1, 4 Evelyn Crescent, Warrnambool VIC 3280 or by phone at 0429 009 004. He will be very pleased to give you any information you require about IFCR.
