I joined the Rotary Club of MASH in 2006, my husband Rob is also a member. I get satisfaction from being involved in a hands-on club that benefits both the local community and further afield. I have been lucky to experience many things and a highlight was a trip to a small village in Fiji where members lived with the locals and assisted with repairs to various buildings in the village. I look forward to serving the club again as President.
David is a proud Rotarian and charter member of MASH. He has enjoyed a long career in the food and hospitality industry and is the owner and founder of Bread Street bakery in Hamilton Street, Mont Albert. This business enjoys an extremely close rapport with the local community. The relationship between Bread Street and MASH is both enduring and endearing, and closely reflects David’s philosophy of sharing and giving ‘Service above Self’.
