Christmas Celebrations at Rotary
A wonderful night at Rotary in Alexandra. Three members were recognised for their outstanding effort helping the local and international community through Rotary.
Robert Chaffe’s was presented with a Paul Harris Sapphire Award in recognition of his involvement with Rotary started in 1985 as a Group Study Exchange to Guelph, Canada. Since then he has been Rotary President and chaired too many Rotary committees to mention. Highlights have been the Australia Day Celebrations, regular submissions of Rotary articles to the Standard, the shelter at the skate Park and the Leckie Park exercise stations.
David Strongman was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship for his exceptional effort serving the community through Rotary since 2004. His efforts helping with the Motor Cycle shows, Bush Fire Recovery and at all our events were recognised.
Finally but not least was the awarding of a Paul Harris Fellowship to our current president David Dimech. This is David’s second stint as President. His dynamic personality had led to many achievements since he joined Rotary in 2011. The Rotary Automotive Swap Meets over the last four years have been momentous tasks encouraging tourism and local interest. His instigation of Youth Discos at the Community Centre with the support of the Kilpatrick’s Mobile Disco was great. 
The rest of the night was full of fellowship and carols.
