Induction of Two new members
 
On the 9th May 2019 the Club had the great pleasure of inducting two new members.
 
Rtn Yvonne Leversha introduced Nicole Larter who has worked in logistics for 30 years, and now works part-time from home, specialising in project management and data analysis, as well as doing some tour guide work. Nicole has volunteered at Flagstaff Hill, and now volunteers with St John Ambulance as well as the YRIPP programme providing support for juvenile offenders in custody in Warrnambool and Hamilton.
 
President Maggie introduced Karen Scull who moved from New Zealand to Australia in 1985. Karen has worked in many areas including childcare, head injury specialist care, running her own cleaning business, and for the past 15 years, again in the disability field.
She is a qualified End of Life Doula who volunteers with Warrnambool Hospice. After moving 50 times in her life, she has now settled in Koroit.
 
It’s great to have Nicole and Karen as Warrnambool East Rotarians! If you know of anyone who is inerested in joining Rotary please contact our Membership Director via email on the left hand side as you scroll down our website home page. https://rotarywarrnambooleast.org/

DR JOHN BIRRELL AWARD
 

The Rotary Club of Warrnambool East Inc. presented the second Dr John Birrell award to recipient Senior Constables John Keats and Trudy Morland  of the  Warrnambool Police.

Nominations for the award were given for South West (WD2) members of the Police Force who display excellence in all aspects of Road Policing.

"Road safety is something that John and I are really passionate about as community engagement officers." said Senior Constable Trudy Moreland

The recipient received a prize of $2500 to be donated to a registered charity of their choice that is aligned with Road Safety. Senior Constables John Keats and Trudy Morland elected to donate the $2500 award to Warrnambool Road Trauma Support Services.

RTSS provide counselling and support services to people impacted by road trauma, and address road user attitudes and behaviours.

"We are all about raising public consciousness about the impact of road trauma," RTSS regional co-ordinator for Warrnambool and Portland Rhys Tate said.

The award was named in honour of Dr John Birrell OAM, a former police surgeon for 20 years was a tireless campaigner for road safety and was instrumental in introducing Breath testing of drivers and compulsory wearing of seat belts.

Please join us in congratulating Senior Constables John Keats and Trudy Morland on this outstanding achievement.

Cessation of City of Warrnambool Art Show

The Rotary Club of Warrnambool East would like to inform the community that we are no longer able to facilitate the City of Warrnambool Art Show. Unfortunately we have not been able to find another group or individual to take over this event.
 
As well as supporting many worthy causes over our 26 years, we believe we have also provided valuable opportunities for artists to show their work to a wider audience, and the opportunity to be rewarded financially.
 
We acknowledge and thank sponsors, artists and the community most sincerely for your contribution and support over the years – it has been truly invaluable.
