Long-serving Rotary members move on
Two long-serving members of the Rotary Club of Woy Woy are leaving the club to pursue other interests.
They are Mr Vic Deeble and Ms Di Schwarzl.
Mr Deeble, who joined the club in 2013, served as its president in 2016-7.
Current president Ms Joan Redmond said Mr Deeble had undertaken many tasks with the club, including three years as its newsletter editor, and being master of ceremonies at club changeovers and the Opera in the Arboretum.
"He is much appreciated for his wise council and general enjoyment that he gets out of helping others," she said.
Before joining the club, he was a member of the Rotary Club of Wahroonga from July 1993 to June 2013, serving as its president in 2004-5.
He was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow in 2006.
"Di Schwarzl also joined Woy Woy Rotary in 2003 and is a Paul Harris Fellow," said Ms Redmond.
"Di's passion was in the International side of Rotary and she travelled to Cambodia and Uganda for International projects during her time with us.
"Di also served on the board for quite a few years and her dedication was much appreciated.
"Woy Woy Rotary will miss both Vic and Di.
"Their circumstances have changed and they are moving on from Rotary, with other interests and new challenges to take up."
