Positions on Rotary Clubs are generally appointed on an annual basis and a changeover function is held around the middle of the year to welcome the incoming administration.
Tonight the Rotary Club of Ringwood held its annual changeover dinner at Rosebank Reception Centre in Ringwood North. The function provides an opportunity to reflect on some of the projects the club has been involved with over the past year.
This year the Rotary Club of Ringwood provided considerable assistance to people affected by the bushfires, through fundraising endeavours and the establishment of a tool library for the people of Marysville.
The club has also assisted new communities through supporting a soccer tournament for the Sudanese and Burmese communities and heard from a range of speakers covering many different community causes.
I am the Fellowship Coordinator for the oncoming year and plan to use this role to encourage members to attend community events and meet the many groups that exist within our community. This will help strengthen the Club’s commitment to providing Service Above Self and highlight the many needs that exist within our broader community.
