Rotary International President Gordon R. McInally calls for Rotary to create hope in the world by working for peace and mental wellbeing. He urges members to earn the trust that’s necessary to realise these values.
I believe as Rotarians we can serve the community by helping the disadvantaged, raising funds for worthy projects and generally being there for others. Rotary is not only about fundraising, it is almost a “way of life “. Meeting a very diverse section of the community, making new friends, and being involved in projects is not often realised by the general public. This creates a satisfaction in knowing that you and your fellow Rotarians are creating the hope in the world that the RI president advocates.
At MASH, we have a diverse membership with a good mix of women and men. We are also involved in many different projects i.e., Mont Albert Market, Whitehorse Farmers’ Market, Lift the Lid for Mental Health Walk along with many other projects. We encourage our members to suggest new ideas for fundraising, membership, environmental projects and community activities.
We have club meetings on the first and third Tuesday of the month and these are held at the Box Hill Institute (TAFE) in Nelson Road, Box Hill. On the first Tuesday we have club business. On the third Tuesday we have a guest speaker and club updates. On the fourth (and fifth, if there are 5 Tuesdays in the month) we have social events or vocational visits.
After the meetings, members (and friends) go to the RSL (which is opposite TAFE) for a meal and to catch up in a social atmosphere.
If you would like to know more about Rotary, we encourage you to attend a meeting and observe how the club functions. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to enquire about attending or if you would like additional information.
