Rotary revival

03 Apr 2014

The Rotary Club of Docklands is undergoing a revitalisation, with a new president taking control of the once-waning organisation.

The club was down to just three members and was about to hand in its charter when Rotarian of 30 years (and former president of two other clubs) Richard Clark was asked to step into the presidential role.

Mr Clark has experience in building up Rotary clubs, having been recruited to the Southbank club when it was starting up 10 years ago.

“This isn’t a new Rotary club, but for all intents and purposes, because the membership got so low, we are almost starting again,” Mr Clark said.

“We’ve got a couple of really good foundation members who have stuck by the club so we feel really confident that we can put a really interesting, multicultural group together,” Mr Clark said.

The Docklands membership has already grown from three to seven people in the past month.

Mr Clark said he hoped to continue to grow the membership level of the club over the next few months.

Mr Clark said Rotary was ageing quite seriously and that the organisation hoped to recruit more young members.

He said Rotary worked on local, national and international levels.

“We like to do around the corner and we like to do around the world,” Mr Clark said.

The Rotary Club of Docklands meets for lunch at Harbour Kitchen each Tuesday at 12.30pm for a 12.45pm start. Meetings finish at 1.45 pm.

For people who feel they can’t commit to becoming a club member, Rotary also offers volunteer opportunities.

To find out more about becoming a member of the Rotary Club of Docklands or a Rotary volunteer contact Mr Clark on 0418 855 112.
