St Kilda Awards

Since 2013 the Rotary Club of St Kilda provides two awards. One is for members who have contributed to the growth of the club and the other is provided to members of the community that have contributed significantly to our local community. The local community awards includes a framed award and for 2 recipients $250 which is made out to the community group that the individual represents. To be eligible for the community award nomination the individual must talk at the club at some time during that year about their cause.
