Message from President 2019-20 Ernie Williams
The Rotary Club of Mordialloc has a proud history of 48 years of community service. Our members represent a range of business, professional and community experience and put these to the benefit the many programs of Rotary. I am pleased to be selected to lead the Club in 2019-20 as we embrace the Rotary International theme of “Rotary connects the World” proclaimed by our International President Mark Daniel Maloney.
During the year we will continue many of our established activities such as the Interplast golf day, partnerships with local primary and secondary schools in programs for young people and the Rotary Foundation humanitarian and educational programs. A highlight will be the Gnome and Fairy Festival in Mordialloc in March 2020. This event was first held in 2013 and is firmly established as a popular community event for young families. We will focus on both local community projects and the international and wider communities. We will continue with the Rotary program to rid Australia of the eye disease Trachoma. We also will be supporting a local Parkinson’s Support Group.
IMPORTANT UPDATE 13 March 2020
Due to the Coronavirus 19 Pandemic being declared, and in the best interests of the general public as well as our members and volunteers, it has been decided to cancel the Festival for 2020. It is hoped that we can run the event about the same time in 2021.
Specific club goals for the year are:
- Increase membership
- Develop at least one project funded by a global or district grant
- Increase the profile of the club in the local community.
- Maintain the club’s support of youth programs and RYLA.
- Hold another successful Gnome and Fairy festival.
