Young lead­ers quay to new Ro­tary branch

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

RO­TARY is ex­pand­ing to El­iz­a­beth Quay.

Mem­bers from the Ro­tary Club of Perth and Ro­tary of Craw­ley are es­tab­lish­ing the Ro­tary Club of El­iz­a­beth Quay that will be capped at 100 mem­bers.

“With Ro­tary, you can’t be all things to all peo­ple, so this club will be set up to ap­peal to young lead­ers in Perth,” James McLeod, who was a char­ter mem­ber of Ro­tary of Craw­ley, said.

“I learnt a lot of lessons be­ing at Craw­ley from the start,” Mr McLeod said.

“Once we’ve got 20 mem­bers then we can ap­ply for a char­ter… we’re nearly there.

“The av­er­age age will prob­a­bly be be­tween 30 and 40.”

Char­ter mem­bers in­clude April Pine (Stir­ling), Tris­tan Ko­lay (Bassendean), Dra­gan Kon­car (Dianella), Michelle Naude (Leederville) and Alexia Sita (Kar­rinyup).

Mr McLeod, of Jolimont, said the group would be in­no­va­tive about how it sup­ported Ro­tary projects, set­ting it apart from neigh­bour­ing clubs.

“The in­ten­tion is to meet ev­ery week but one week we’ll have a high pro­file speaker, then a projects meet­ing, then a so­cial event and fin­ish off with another projects meet­ing,” he said.

Mr McLeod said the group would meet at The Reve­ley and even­tu­ally the Ritz-Carl­ton.
