Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

Rotary brings us a musical lunch with a difference


Fitzroy Rotary will hold its annual pre-game lunch on Saturday 22 June at Brunswick Street Oval before Fitzroy plays host to the Monash Blues.

And this lunch will feature the musical talents of one of our close neighbours and supporters, Dobe Newton.

Fitzroy Rotary has had a partnership with Fitzroy Football Club for 12 years, providing Leadership Scholarships to some of the best players and leaders at the club. Over that same period the Fitzroy Victoria Bowls Club has hosted and supported Fitzroy Rotary and been an annual substantial sponsor of Fitzroy Football Club.

What better way to acknowledge that community triangle than a lunch featuring the President of the bowls club Dobe Newton OAM. Dobe is also President of the Australian Country Music Association and the co-author of the song that could easily be our national anthem - "We are Australian".With Indigenous Rugby League players leading the push for some changes to the national anthem, perhaps the solution is to make the change to what has become the unofficial version.

Who knew we had such talent right next door. If you're lucky he might even sing a few songs for us.

Join Fitzroy Rotary for a lunch with a difference.

Tickets are on sale now.
