2014
Recently our club members joined together with Art Students from Southern Cross K12 School to embark of a mission to improve the looks of a local pump station near Chickiba Lakes.
With the assistance of well known Aboriginal Artist Digby Moran these students will be adding murals to the background work that our members have prepared for them.

2013
The Rotary club of Ballina-on-Richmond handed over $8,500 to Ballina Marine Rescue late last year to support their worthy volunteer organisation.
The money was raised at the Rotary clubs 2013  Fine Wine and Food Festival (FWFF) which was held in 2013 at the Ballina Jockey Club.  (The festival is now an annual fundraising event.)
In his presentation, chairman of the FW&FF Milton Colburt congratulated the Ballina Marine Rescue for the outstanding volunteer service and support they provide for local boating enthusiasts and fishermen in the Shire.
Milton went on to say that the Rotary Club of Ballina-on- Richmond recognized the urgent need for a new tower to be constructed which would add far more facilities than the current one which is in poor condition.
Representing Ballina Marine Rescue, Ken Delaney thanked the Rotary Club for the donation and said how vital significant donations were to their projects..
