On Wednesday 25 May, it was my privilege to act on behalf of DG Daryl Moran and present to Ern and Nola Dawes a Rotary Foundation Major Donor recognition.  The recognition takes the form of a pin and an engraved crystal (both pictured).
This recognition is presented to families that have donated a minimum of $US10,000 to the Rotary Foundation.  This recognition includes only personal donations, that is recognitions presented as PHFs by clubs or District are not included.
The support of Major Donors is vital to the Rotary Foundation as it continues its humanitarian activities in the seven areas of focus.
Significant donations to the Rotary Foundation can take the form of occasional personal inputs or a regular pledge of a specific amount.  A donation pledge of $US1,000 per year is recognised with membership of the Paul Harris Society.  PHS pledges can be fulfilled in regular payments spread through the year or as a single transaction.
Members interested in making personal donations to the Rotary Foundation should contact Greg King.
Congratulations to Ern and Nola on achieving this significant recognition and for indicting to the world their support of the Rotary Foundation and their faith in its integrity.
IPDG Alma Reynolds

Rotary FAQs #02
 
What is Rotary?
ROTARY is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Rotarians commit to the premise of “Service above Self!”
When you think about the opportunities that being a Rotarian presents by that proposition don’t you think it’s imperative we all take time to keep our organisation fluid, relevant and dynamic?
Being fluid allows us to adapt to the ever-changing world in which we live.
Being fluid allows us to be aware of the requirements of our communities and to offer assistance to serve our communities. Being fluid gives us the chance to lead our communities as we address the challenges we face in our every-day lives.
Age is not the measure of relevancy in our communities.
The service we as Rotarians can provide is making sure we are relevant and aware of the needs of our local communities. We do this by ensuring that, as individuals and Clubs, we’re flexible and responsive to local, national and international needs.
Being dynamic is all about attitude.
By having our fingers on the pulse of community needs we can always react promptly to fill those needs with the experience and guidance that Rotarians can offer.
It’s important to remember we can only continue to serve while our communities are aware of our roles that we play.
It’s with this in mind that the branding and marketing of our Club becomes a powerful recognition tool.

Welfare
While we’re getting on with the business of helping others, let’s take a moment to remember our fellow Members, Partners and Friends of the Club, who may be doing it a little tough.
We’re also thinking of our long-term absent Members whom we don’t see often enough.
I’m sure all of us know an absent or ex Member who would love to have a call from any one of us as Members of the Rotary Club of Doncaster.
If you do know anyone who is unwell, or is going through challenging times, or even if you’re up against it yourself, contact our Welfare Officer, PP Frank Evans on 9337 8493, or email frank.evans1@bigpond.com.
