It’s been a busy first month launching the Satellite Club, but as ever, our members have found time to volunteer in the community and lend a helping hand to other clubs.
At our first official business meeting, we talked about where we see our club fit within Rotary, our values, and our goals for this year. Over the coming month we will be looking to formally align ourselves with one or two of Rotary’s causes, which we will champion as a club through volunteering efforts with other clubs, partcipating in Rotary Action Groups, supporting specific not for profit organisations, and our own projects.
It’s an exciting time for our club as we are shaping our future priorities and direction. If you are passionate about something, this is a great opportunity to get your voice heard and get involved. We welcome you to join us at one of our meetings and find out more!
July proved to be a very busy month! While all members may not be able to assist at every event, our members are able to volunteer at those events that suit them.
Some go to extremes to be at volunteer events that start early in the cold, wet winter of the Sunshine Coast.
While some of us volunteered at the RYDA Road Safety Education day at Caloundra Racecourse for Kawana State College, others gathered at Maroochydore State High School for the annual mock interviews with the school’s Year 10 students. This youth project has been in the safe hands of Maroochydore Rotarybut will now be an Alex Rotary project. The interviews make such a difference to students preparing for that all important step into the workplace.
