Message from President 2021-22 Brian Foley
In November 2021, the Rotary Club of Mordialloc will celebrate 50 years of community service in the Mentone, Parkdale, Mordialloc and surrounding areas.
Our members come from a range of business, professional, trade and community backgrounds. They apply their knowledge and skills to implement the many programs of Rotary at a local, national and international level. I am honoured to lead the Club in 2021-2022 as we embrace the Rotary International theme of “Serve to Change Lives”. Together we can lead change in our own backyards and across the world.
We are now in the second century of Rotary in Australia having celebrated the first 100 years since formation of the Rotary Club of Melbourne in April 1921. Despite difficulties of the past year due to Covid lockdowns, we were able to recognise this significant milestone with several designated local, national and international projects. Later in 2021/22 is the celebration of the Rotary Club of Mordialloc reaching its 50 year milestone. Another significant future event we can look forward to is the Rotary International Convention planned for Melbourne in May 2023.
Over the past two years, Covid 19 has brought many changes to society generally and we have had to endure the necessary constraints imposed on activity to control and manage the pandemic. Our club had to cancel or postpone many of our usual activities, including fundraising. Nevertheless, we were able to adapt our meetings and still undertake a range of valuable services locally, nationally and internationally. In 2021-22 we are confident that the club will continue to provide necessary community services subject to any restrictions that might still apply. We are also planning some new initiatives when conditions allow. Unfortunately, we have had to cancel two of our signature projects, the Interplast golf day and the Gnome and Fairy Festival, in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions.
