District Changeover 2021
The New Year Begins
Thank you for the music
Congratulations Dale
Thank you Philip!
Welcome from District Governor Dale

Welcome to the new Rotary Year of 2021-22, the Centenary year of Rotary here in Australia and New Zealand in which we follow the lead of our Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta and ‘Serve to Change Lives.’

In between two Covid lockdown restrictions, on 10th July at Hyatt Essendon Fields, 250 Rotarians came together to celebrate the District 9800 Changeover. It was wonderful to enjoy face to face friendship and fellowship again.

Highlights of the District 9800 Changeover 2021

How fortunate we were, after having to change the date of the District 9800 Changeover to Saturday 10th July, to be able to have 250 Rotarians meet between two Victorian COVID lockdowns for an enjoyable face to face day of celebration and fellowship and the wonderful location of Hyatt Place in Essendon Fields.

Congratulations PHFR Recipients - Changeovers 2021

Congratulations to our latest Paul Harris Fellow Recognition (PHFR) recipients presented at the various 2021 changeovers in District 9800.

".......hereby named a PAUL HARRIS FELLOW in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world."

And this list of recipients will continue to grow as we gather all the names. How wonderful to see so many people 'doing good in the world'!

District Plan for the year ahead

On the 10th July at the District Changeover, I provided a brief overview of the District Plan for 2021 /22 and beyond.

Our VISION (or our compass) is the same whether for Rotary International, our District or Clubs: 

RLI - Online in August 2021

The Rotary Leadership Institute Program (RLI) presents a wonderful opportunity for experienced Rotarians, new members and indeed people interested in finding out more about Rotary to take some time to experience the history, current and new initiatives related to this great organisation we call Rotary.

How's this for glowing recommendation:  Glenda Bryson: "I was amazed by how much I didn't know about Rotary, 15+ years after joining, all because I stepped up & participated in R.L.I. in 2020. This program will enhance your knowledge to help you become better advocates of the brand & may even refresh your 'reason that you stay in Rotary'. Short sessions enable you to retain the information too." Ken Maxfield: "Agreed ... 40 years into my Rotary life and I was brought up to date. Worth every minute."
