How many clubs can one DG visit?

By District Governor, Bronwyn Stephens

Sharing Club's Presidents' changeover events has been an utter joy and privilege. Thank you those who have invited the District Governor group. Apologies to the Clubs where we were not able to accept invitations. Some evenings there were as many as 5 changeovers held and only three of us available to attend.

Something that is fascinating, and we will experience more as the year unfolds. is how very diverse each Club is, and how you each do things your own way. There is so much to share in terms of your great ideas, meeting styles, venues, projects and demographics. One common denominator stands. Fellowship. We love to laugh, share a yarn. do a good job and help others while we are about it.

Rotary International President Barry Rassin said in his letter to incoming Rotary leaders, "Rotary is a team sport. We share the same goal: a world transformed by Rotary service, one project, one club, one community at a time."

Rotary Club of Yarra Bend President Edda Williams added

"That's why we all joined Rotary - to work within a community that shares the same ideals and hopes, to collaborate and cooperate to make a difference in people's lives. To inspire and be inspired. My aim in the for the Rotary year 2018-19 is to share conversations with the Rotary clubs in the Riverside and Eastside clusters so that collaboratively, we can pool resources to maximise the impact we can make in the lives of those in need. I firmly believe in having simple conversations, of making connections and in working together towards a shared and common goal."

Rotary Club of Bendigo Sandhurst President Graeme Lyndos said

We will enjoy our 4F nights. Fun, Fellowship, Food and Fursdays.". Later he said Increased membership is a consequence of what we do.

In 2 weeks' time, Rob Rosaia. Paul Kirkpatrick and I will be attending a Jamshod Dinner, prepared and cooked by Afghani refugee men. This is a direct response to the presentation by Kay Graves and a challenge to our club to involve new members of our community. into who we are and what we do.

Rotary Club of Southbank President Amritpal Singh created a new Rotary theme ....


The District Support Team and I are here, stepping outside our Clubs. just to lend a hand in any way you ask. Please call or email if we can be of help. Rotary is important in Community, Youth, Vocational and International service. Thank you for all you will be adding in each of your Clubs. Mark and I look forward to being with you along the journey.

The District Governor is responsible for all of the 60+ clubs in our district and serves the role for one year.  Rotary Club of Southbank's own Philip Archer will also be District Governor in 2020-21 and looks forward to following the inspiration created this year by Bronwyn Stephens from the Rotary Club of Melbourne South and next year by Grant Hocking from the Rotary Club of Woodend in leading clubs to be their own leader in their communities.
