Message from President 2020-21 Paul Taranto
The Rotary Club of Mordialloc has a proud history of 49 years of community service in the Mentone/Parkdale/Mordialloc areas. Our members come from a range of business, professional trade and community background. They apply their knowledge and skills to the benefit of the many programs of Rotary at a local, national and international level. I am honoured to lead the Club in 2020-21 as we embrace the Rotary International theme of “Rotary Opening Opportunities”. Together we lead change in our own backyards and across the world.
The coming three years bring with them three significant events for our Club. The first is the celebration of 100 years of Rotary in Australia (April 2021). Our Club will be working on identifying a suitable project to recognize and celebrate this milestone. The second in 2021/22 is the celebration of the Rotary Club of Mordialloc reaching their 50 year milestone. Again the Club is working on a suitable project to recognize this achievement. Finally we have the Rotary International Convention coming to Melbourne in May 2023. It is certainly a lot to look forward to.
The advent of Co-Vid 19 and the necessary constraints that have come to control and manage the pandemic has meant many of our Club’s usual activities have been put on hold. That does not mean however, that our Club is going to be dormant until the restrictions are lifted. As the theme for this Rotary year points out the current situation opens opportunities for our Club to do new things and do old things differently. Already we have adapted to holding our weekly meetings via Zoom and all are welcome to log into these meetings (see advice elsewhere on this page on how to do so). The Club has identified new projects on how to support the needy in our local community as well as small business. The Club will continue many of its established activities such as the InterPlast golf day and the Gnome and Fairy Festival when conditions permit but until that time the Club is actively planning and preparing for new endeavours. To see what the Club is doing please bookmark this website as well as follow us on Facebook (Rotary Club of Mordialloc) and, if you are inclined, like us and share our pages.
