Introducing our newest member, MELISSA LOWE
I am married and have 3 adult sons. My husband’s work is the reason we moved from Wonthaggi to Alexandra. Our sons are all working or in tertiary education.
I have mostly worked in medical administration, beginning as a secretary at Peter Mac and progressing to Executive Assistant and Medical Records Clerk. In Wonthaggi I worked at the Post Office and I am now enjoying meeting people at the Alexandra Post Office.
With regard to previous volunteering roles, I was very involved with our local soccer club. I held the position of Secretary for over 5 years. The club began in a small way with no club rooms, no committee and second hand uniforms. I’m very pleased to say the club is now thriving and recently was given a large grant to build its own club rooms.
I have considered joining Rotary for a while, particularly after my move to Alexandra and since I no longer have children living at home. I am impressed that the organisation is worldwide but also very local. I am very passionate about education and was really pleased to see what Rotary does in this field.
I hope that in the future membership of Rotary becomes more appealing to the wider Alexandra community, as the greater the membership the greater the opportunities.
