Paul Harris Recognition awarded to Joe and Pamela Talia
 
 
Rotarian Noel first approached Joe and Pamela in the second half of 2017 with the idea of holding a free concert in Rotary Park, with the understanding that this would only happen with the backing of our Rotary Club.  They were both immediately interested and very supportive of the idea and how could they help.  Both were very keen to support local musicians and give them a chance of performing to a crowd for experience.  Their enthusiasm, knowledge and help is what made Music in the Park possible.  They took on the job of sourcing the musicians and liaising with them, creating our poster and keeping the musicians on time on the night of the concert.  Joe also made available his own sound equipment and put it all together for the first concert, a huge effort.  
 
The concert this year, although down in numbers due to timing with covid interruptions, still succeeded due to Joe and Pamela giving us so much of their time.  As we all know they were unable to be at this year’s concert due to Joe’s ill health, but they still had everything well organised and even arranged for their daughter Mel to be there on the night to manage the musicians.  
 
They are both so keen to inspire budding musicians and we also thank them for setting us on the right path to be able to manage future concerts.
 

 
Thanks Kerry for decorating the Rotary Christmas tree.

VCE Citizenship Awards
We had a difficult job selecting our Rotary Citizenship Awardees this year due to the quality of young people that are graduating Alexandra Secondary College. Our two recipients, Yolanda Vinycomb and Jackson Harris, exemplify how to get the best out of a secondary school education and experience.
Yolanda has held numerous leadership positions in the College, most notably Senior House Captain for Cumming. She gave five years of service to Electroheads and was Head Electrohead in her last 2 years, running the sound and light expertly for school and community events and mentoring junior students to do the same. Yolanda is a great all-rounder, a talented drummer in the College Music Programme, taking out age championships in Athletics and Swimming on three occasions and was College Cross Country Age Champion each year.
Jackson was College Captain this year and lead by great example. He gave three years of service to the Student Representative Council. While we were learning from home, he helped set up and organise a Walk/Run/Bikeathon House competition to keep students active and connected. He made a promotional video for this, one of his many talents. Jackson is a gifted singer/performer and we will miss his starring presence in College Productions and Music Programme concerts. Jackson also excelled in Athletics, winning age Champion six years in a row.
Both Jackson and Yolanda are outstanding young people who are spoken of fondly by staff, junior students and their peers. Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Alexandra for their acknowledgment of our wonderful youth with this award and their global ongoing generous support of Alexandra Secondary College.
