Docklands Rotary Club says farewell

29 Jun 2017

After eight years, the Docklands Rotary Club is saying goodbye to the local community and will be incorporated into the Albert Park club.

The club president Loryn Clark said it had to close after a long time of struggling to gain commitment from the community.

“We just couldn’t get people to commit to the club. They didn’t seem that interested,” Ms Clark said. “It got too hard to keep things going.”

Ms Clark said the club also faced communication difficulties.

“It was very hard to communicate with the Docklands residents. They all live in apartments and it was difficult to reach them,” she said.

Ms Clark highlighted the Rotary Club’s achievements, including organising two big festivals in 2014 and 2015 and raising $11,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

She also said she would try to relaunch a new Rotary Club in a few years’ time, with new approaches and events.
