Rotary club celebrates fifth birthday at Changeover

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water will celebrate its fifth birthday at its Changeover Dinner on Thursday, July 4.

Secretary Ms Di Bartok said: "Founded by long-term Rotarians, husband and wife Peter and Jayne Mote, the club immediately drew a membership of other experienced and dedicated Rotarians, plus those new to Rotary."

Ms Bartok said Members were attracted to the club's credo of "Come when you can, do what you can", setting it apart from traditional Rotary clubs.

Evening fortnightly meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of the month at Ettalong Diggers, usually with a guest speaker.

"They are informal and welcome anyone to come along.

"Members usually gather beforehand for dinner in the bistro.

"These meetings are complemented by coffee morning meetings, on the second and fourth Thursdays, for those who want to catch up for a chat, not necessarily Rotary-related."

Ms Bartok said: "Our club may be young, but we have achieved so much."

Among the achievements were supporting youth and education programs; holding a fortnightly coffee morning, called DeCaf for people living with dementia and their carers; and sponsoring events such as the Words on the Waves Writers' Festival.

The club supported education and health programs locally and in Africa and the Pacific; raising money for good causes, such as the Biggest Morning Tea.

"Current co presidents Mitchell Gordon and Sue O'Neill will hand the reins over to Marion Cornish, Peter Mote and Jayne Mote who will lead a willing and able team for the coming year."

For further information, contact either Jayne Mote on 0405 714 289 or Di Bartok on 0404 147 743.
