New Rotary club keeps most of board for second year

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water has celebrated its first 12 months of operation and has decided to keep most of its board and committee chairs for its second year.

Returning president Mr Peter Mote said two changes were made at the official "changeover" meeting on July 2.

Ms Marijke Greenway would become assistant treasurer and Mr Martyn King Fellowship and Outings Chair.

"We will have a full year despite the current health emergency and the Board will be working on the Operational plan in the first month," Mr Mote said.

He thanked those who served on the board and as committee chairs during the club's first year "for all their help, friendship and support in getting us airborne and doing so much in such a short time".

"I would never have been able to do the job as your Charter President were it not for the unstinting help, advice and support of my darling Jayne.

"The work that I am most proud of is the help we have been able to give to the Youth Cottages and Neleh House in its efforts with the scourge of domestic violence.

"Internationally, we have been able to give support to Sue O'Neill in her fantastic work with Divine Mercy School in Uganda."

Mr Mote listed the club's activities over the year.

It helped with the collection of food for Coast Shelter.

It raised $800 in charity donations on Red Carpet Day.

It helped with the purchase of a car and associated services for a Neleh House resident with a disabled child, using a $10,000 Dick Smith grant.

It donated food to local fire service people.

It took part in the Envision bottle top collection used to make prosthetic limbs.

It shipped educational books from Woy Woy South Public School library to Uganda, Papua New Guinea, The Philippines, Fiji and outback stations in Australia.

It received a Central Coast Council grant for sound and projection equipment costing $3023.

It's Titanic fundraising dinner sold 100 tickets at $100 each.

The club took part in the We Care Connect program by donating clothing, toys, prams and beds to disadvantaged children.

It became a sister club of the Wendover and District club in the UK.

The Rotary Club was runner-up in the Volunteer Team of the Year awards, organised by Volunteering Central Coast.
