Rotary International President Holger Knaack believes that Rotary is not just a network of Clubs. It is an invitation to endless opportunities.
 
It opens opportunities to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree.
 
And it opens opportunities to live a richer, more meaningful life, with friends around the world, based on our core values.
 
Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.

Rotary is still in action ....
Our thoughts go out to all people and organisations affected by COVID-19.
 
We sincerely thank all our Government leaders, healthcare professionals, emergency services and security workers, and those still working to provide essential goods and services to our community. Thank you and stay safe.

2020 Bruce Parker OAM Vocational Awardee Named
Please join in congratulating Lal Bochung on being the inaugural recipient of the Bruce Parker OAM, Rotary Club of Doncaster Vocational Award.
 
Lal  recently completed his Certificate 111 in Landscape Construction at the Box Hill Institute after overcoming significant hardships.  These included arriving in Australia as a refugee from Myanmar in 2017 with no English skills and very little formal training, as well as no local network. He truly is an inspiration.
 
The BHI staff have done an amazing job facilitating Lal's development and creating opportunities for him, including his successful nomination for this Vocational Award.
 
We are very proud to be associated with the Box Hill Institute  and wish Lal every success as he makes his mark in his adopted country.

2020 Queen's Birthday Honours
We pay tribute to those who received honours in recognition of their outstanding contributions.
 
We are particularly proud of Club Rotarian's Bruce Parker and Dr Frank Evans who were awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in the General Division.
 
Bruce for services to the community and the automotive industry, and Dr Frank for service to the international community of Timor Leste. Bruce was also a key contributor in Timor Leste.
 
Congratulations one and all for your service.

Rotary continues on community radio ...
Community radio is deemed an "essential service" by our Government leaders during the COVID-19 lock down.
 
Some of our Club members continue to serve on 94.1 FM 3WBC and 96.5 Inner FM to provide some sense of normality to their listening audience.
 
Of course all the Government COVID-19 hygiene and distancing guidelines are being followed, and our members will continue their service in this area as long as it is safe to do so.
 
Pictured here is PDG Russell interviewing RAWCS Projects and Volunteers Manager, Mick Willis, and having fun, via video conference. 
 
Why not listen in and hear great stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, making a real difference, all interleaved with some great music. 
 
 
#WeAreRotary   #PeopleOfAction 
Dr Frank Evans OAM recently gave an overview of our Club's history since chartering in 1972.
 
We are fortunate to have three charter members still active in our Club; PP Bruce Parker OAM, PDG Bill Tierney, and PP Graeme Trainor. Bill and Graeme have served continuously for almost 50 years.
