Rotary club accepts two new members
The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water has accepted two new members.
"Since forming last July 2019, the club has grown to 28 members, a growth of 21.7 per cent," said club president Mr Peter Mote.
Aged care health worker Ms Heather Martin and events manager Mr Troy Dove are both night shift workers and were drawn to the club's option of morning and evening meetings.
"When I was asked to join, I was able to think about it because the club had morning meetings, which suits me better than the evening when I often work," Ms Martin said.
Ms Martin said she was passionate about the club's mission in helping people with dementia and their carers.
Mr Dove said he loved to help charitable causes, having held trivia nights and other events in the past.
Mr Mote said Mr Dove was younger than the average Rotarian"" which he believed would attract younger members to the club.
He said the flexibility of the club meetings helped parents of young children or night shift workers who wished to contribute to their community but could not.
