Memory Lane with Past President David Jones

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 27 April 2019
Memory Lane with Past President David Jones

On Wednesday 17th April 2019, President Amritpal Singh attended Rotary Club of Melbourne's lunch meeting to hear Professor, The Reverend Gary D. Bouma (AM, FAICD) topic on "Changing Religious Diversity in Australia:  What is and What is Coming". It was a fascinating topic and got everyone's attention - marvelous job to President Robert Fisher and his team for hosting a great luncheon meeting!

Throughout the meeting, President Amritpal Singh was sitting next to Past President David Jones (1992-1993) from Rotary Club of Melbourne who shared his stories and achievements when he was president of the club. One of the few highlights that David shared was that he was not only the president in 1992-1993 but also the organiser of the first (1st) Rotary International (R.I.) Convention in Melbourne back in 1993. He was also the Past President of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (M.C.G.) who instrumented the redevelopment of the 1928 Members' stand, the 1956 Olympic stand and the 1968 Ponsford who has enabled the stadium to cater for than 100,000 capacity. David is full of life and such a lovely person ~ he does look forward to attend the 2023 R.I. Convention back in Melbourne!
