Rotary welcomes new club on the Capricorn Coast
ROTARY is expanding on the Capricorn Coast.
A new Rotary satellite club has been formed on the Capricorn Coast under the auspice of the Rotary Club of Rockhampton.
Rotary on Capricorn Coast will be a breakfast club, meeting each Wednesday at 6.30am for 7am start at Rosslyn Bay Resort and Spa.
The nine new members - Mary Clark, Darryl Lapworth, Mike Suthers, Michelle Saunders, Robyn Neil, Glenyss Nielsen, Peter Maver, Alf Klerkx and Neil McDonell - were inducted on Sunday, October 25, at Beaches Restaurant.
Among the 50-strong crowd of family and friends attending was the Rotary District Governor Brian Jessett and his wife Sally from the Rotary Club of Hervey Bay Sunrise.
Rotary on Capricorn Coast is supported by the Rotary Club of Rockhampton (RCOR) and the Rotary Club of Yeppoon (RCOY).
Newly formed club chairman Neil McDonell said: "It has been many months' work following due process to set the club up and we are now well on our way."
He thanked both club presidents - Richard Roper from the RCOR and Robert Harris of RCOY.
Mr Roper said the presence of the District Governor at the induction showed how important new members were to Rotary International and Rotary Downunder.
"These clubs enable the continuum of service to the international community to expand," he said.
Rotary is a global network of community volunteers. Members are business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
