SIR JOHN REID COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD

Volunteers play a critical role in delivering services throughout our community. The Rotary Club of Melbourne recognises these contributions each year by awarding the Sir John Reid Community Service Award. This award is a permanent memorial to Sir John Reid, who served the RCM for over 45 years, being its President in 1953-54. The Award has been given each year since its inception in 1987 to honour an individual in the Victorian community whose service to that community is judged to be worthy of special notice.

CLUB 'CHAMPION' 

GEORGE TIPPETT

Before visiting George and his wife Naomi at their home,  I had intended to ask him about his AM and Knight of St John awards.   As you will read, there was no reason to ask him as it became very obvious why this dedicated “serious” anaesthetist and Rotarian was bestowed with an AM,  KStJ any many other awards.
