District 9800 Rotarians mourn the passing of their friend and colleague, Past President and Past District Governor Des Jones.
Des became a member of the Rotary Club of Prahran in July 1988. He was District Governor of District 9800 in the year 2000-2001. As District
Governor, Des held the District Conference at Darling Harbour in Sydney. It was a magical occasion. The opening ceremony was held in the Entertainment Centre and at the`conclusion we all exited and boarded ships to sail around the harbour. Beautiful moonlight, great food and drink, and lots of friendly banter made for a glorious evening. The theme for Des's year was "Create Awareness, Take Action" and this conference did just that.
