Hi everyone, this being my first President’s Report it’s appropriate to reflect on the changeover last night and then outline some visions (and plans) for the coming Rotary year: What a pleasing night for our changeover. A BIG thank you to DG Bill Degnan and wife Judy and AG Colin Byron for coming to our club and helping the night become a real success. Thank you to Phillip and 2021 – 2022 Board and Members for your confidence in me and ongoing support. Thank you Phillip also for your work especially through the extremely challenging COVID period and beyond for always bringing new ideas and dedication to the role of Rotarian and the various portfolios held by you over the years and well done on the Paul Harris Fellowship. From my perspective, it is a privilege to be inducted as the President of this Club – Represented by an amazing group of people and their partners. MY GOALS: My goals for this year are summarised below. Interestingly they have some similarity to those I set in my first stint as President back in 2009-2010. That was also on 22 June exactly 13 years ago! Thirteen (13) is one of my favourite numbers so that is a good sign. Play a big part in Community Service in our local and wider community.

Place a very high focus on new members and increase membership by at least 3 and reduce average age of the club membership – otherwise Goal No 1 is very difficult to achieve. Maintain key projects and funding streams Increase public awareness of RCNW & Rotary Increase fellowship activities and place a greater focus on these Continue Reading
Wow, this lockdown has been really hard and just when we started to get going on our new format and new projects we were all shut down. But thanks to vaccinations were should be able to open again, have real meetings, start new projects, have dinner with our friends and get back to living as life. See you soon. Soon!!!!!
Its good to finally get back to a Rotary Project, This one has been an ongoing project for us for many years, The Harkaway Cemetray is a big part of our heritage and is the third oldest cemetery in Victoria, where many of the early settlers to the area are buried. We clean up around the graves to help keep them in order, Agapanthus is a problem but us and the trust are getting on top of things. If you want to get back into the community send us a message.
