Message from our President

“Serve to Change Lives”
“The Art of Giving”
Our club has just received from ShelterBox Australia, its 2021 Partnership Impact Report.
The Club is proud to have received a certificate of appreciation as a Silver member/contributor to this Rotary organisation.
This year, Rotary and ShelterBox are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our official partnership — and more than 20 years of working together to support families whose lives have been devastated by disaster and conflict. They have combined resources and provide emergency temporary housing and other vital equipment to help families immediately after a disaster — and to put them on a path to long-term recovery.
This partnership provides our club a realistic approach to responding to natural disasters that occur overseas. The reach of this organisation is far wider and more efficient than any approaches we as individuals or a club alone could achieve.
Likewise, in responding to natural disasters both at home and overseas, we have the arm of Rotary Australia World Community Services (RAWCS) as our vehicle that ensures that donated monies reach those in need and do not get lost in administrative charges, salaries or rental of office spaces.
We are indeed fortunate to have the integrity and honesty of the Rotary brand to work with. Organisations that report back where the monies are spent and provide full reports to all contributors in relation to the impact their work has created.
In today’s world there is a plethora of aid agencies internationally and at home. We are competing in a flooded market. For Rotary to remain relevant we need to demonstrate to the public who assist our fund-raising endeavours that our brand is unique, honest and operates with integrity at all times.
In this modern world we have much work to do in showing off our brand, making sure that we are connected to those we serve in the community and that in reporting our work we feature not the monetary value but the impact, how many benefitted, what partnerships have we managed to achieve and the social outcomes.
It takes more time and effort to work in this manner, however our future is dependent on it.
To those members of the Christian faith celebrating Holy Week and the churches teachings of resurrection and new life – I wish you Happy Easter
To those members of the Jewish faith celebrating Passover, I wish each of you Happy Pesach.
Warm regards
President Helen Nodrum
