New Rotary president at Woy Woy

The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has a new president, starting Wednesday, July 1.

Ms Joan Redmond is taking over from outgoing-president Mr Don Tee.

The changeover of presidents was conducted at the club's regular video meeting on Friday, June 26.

Ms Redmond said the theme for the coming year was Rotary Opens Opportunities.

"The theme for the year led the way for our club to consider who we are and what we do and to refocus our efforts," she said.

"Plans for the coming year include expanding our reach through new projects and activities and by collaborating with community organisations to work together to support others.

"We plan on continuing our current annual projects, but much will depend on the effect the pandemic will have on staging community events.

"So much support is going to be needed now after Covid and I'm looking for other people within the community to work with us.

"Our club has an experienced board and long-serving, committed Rotarians and our doors are open for like-minded people to help us continue to serve those in need.

"There is much work to be done and many needs to be met, and I look forward to restrictions lifting so we can safely get back to business."

Ms Redmond said: "I have lived here in Woy Woy since 1999.

"Stepping into the role was a natural progression, having served on the board for four years, and a great opportunity to give back to the community I've lived in for the past 21 years."

"I thought it was time to give back to the community in a service role.

"So now it was about stepping up and being involved in the thing that I'm really interested in.

"I'm honoured to be leading an organisation that has played a vital role in serving the community for the past 70 years."
