Umina Rotary presents awards to two members

The Rotary Club of Umina Beach has presented awards to two of its long-time members, Mr Mike Dwyer and Mr Wayne Dowdle.

The club has awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship to Mr Dwyer.

Past president Mr Wayne Dowdle was awarded the annual Rotarian of the Year Trophy.

Club publicity officer Mr Pat Lewis said Mr Dwyer was the rincipal at Dwyer Mortgage Concepts and "has been serving the community through this avenue as well as a member of the club for many years".

"While always being willing and available for any project the club initiates, he continues in the role of the Rotary Foundation chair within the club promoting support for this essential funder of Rotary projects at home and abroad," said Mr Lewis.

"Along with his wife, Colleen, he also manages the club's involvement in the Rotary BowelCare program, involving distributing kits to participating pharmacies and collecting monies for return to Rotary.

The couple were also involved in "visiting the club's roadside collection teams during the annual Salvation Red Shield Appeal supplying refreshments and collecting donations received".

Mr Lewis said Mr Dowdle was for many years one of the principals of Clark Dowdle Surveyors in Umina.

"He is currently vice-chair of Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and a director of Peninsula Village Aged Care.

"During the year, he has excelled in initiating three wonderful projects for the club.

"Along with the Rotary Club of Woy Woy, he managed our club's part in the donation of music headphones for residents of Peninsula Village Aged Care so that could enjoy music quietly during times of relaxation.

"He also co-ordinated our club's participation, with the Rotary Clubs of Woy Woy and Brisbane Water, in a joint donation of $1000 to Blue Wave Living.

"His largest project was brokering the donation by Peninsula Village Age Care of 70 surplus hospital beds to Rotary and the co-ordination of club members to transport these to Sydney to be sent to Bierut and Sri Lanka as a humanitarian donation."

Mr Lewis said Mr Dowdle would be club president for the 22-23 Rotary Year.
