President’s message

This year the theme for Rotary clubs throughout the world is “Imagine Rotary”.    Jennifer Jones, is the Rotary International president for 2022-23. As the first woman to be elected president, she understands how important it is to follow through on Rotary’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement. “I believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion … begins at the top and for us to realise growth in female membership and members under the age of forty — these demographics need to see their own reflection in leadership,” Jennifer said. “I will champion double-digit growth in both categories while never losing sight of our entire family.” During the 2022-23-year, she encourages each of us to do our part to ensure Rotary is a welcoming and inclusive community.

As Rotarians we always seek to serve the community and we live up to the ideals of service above self.   We work on hands-on projects and raise funds for worthy causes that assist disadvantaged and deserving people.  The work we do and our relationship with our community and those we help changes us as individuals. This year we look forward to holding a car boot sale on the 4th Sunday in the car park in Hamilton Street, Mont Albert.

Our club also participates in national and overseas projects by providing manpower, materials, or funds. We do this because of the satisfaction we get from serving others and embracing humanity.

Life as a member of our Rotary club is not only about work – we also have a lot of fun with social events and get-togethers.

Our club embraces diversity and has a good mix of women and men members. We are flexible and open to change. We value the opinion and contributions of all our members and our community of friends and supporters.

In 2022-23 our club’s monthly meeting schedule will be as follows

1st Tuesday – Planning meeting at Box Hill Institute to discuss projects, events and plans

3rd Tuesday – Guest speakers in person at Box Hill Institute or on Zoom

4th and 5th Tuesdays- Social events or vocational visits

Following meetings at Box Hill Institute club members and guests adjourn to the neighbouring RSL Club for a meal, friendship and social chit-chat.
