DG PETER FRUEH REPORT AT DARWIN ZONE

Our DG Peter Frueh addressed the recent DG’s Symposium held on August 31 in the Darwin Convention Centre. This year all the Australian DG’s attended (21 in total) with their Partners.  I particularly liked Peter's "requote" below regarding Rotary Foundation:

  • Wishbones - who wish others would do it
  • Jawbones - who talk about doing something
  • Knucklebones - who knock the Foundation
  • Backbones - who always give

Read on for the full report which highlights the hopes, needs and future of Rotary International at District level.

CLUB REMINDERS
SENIORS' AWARD 2018 NOMINATIONS NEEDED

One of the Club's Annual Awards is the Seniors' Award made to a person over the age of 60 years whose outstanding service in a voluntary capacity is judged to have made a positive difference to the lives of older people.
 
Most of us with local community involvements will be aware of a person whose record of voluntary service for the benefit of older people would make them a worthy recipient of the Senior's Award.
