Rotary Club of Ringwood – September Board Meeting

The Rotary Club of Ringwood has several committees that focus on specific areas of interest, including International activities, community events and the membership of the Club. Board meetings enable all members to receive updates on the many activities undertaken by the Club.

Tonight’s meeting included an update on the community activities that have been developed by the Club, including the support provided to community organisations through fundraising and other initiatives.

The Rotary Club of Ringwood is holding its third annual Golf Day on the 25th of November at Ringwood Golf Course. The Golf Day is a major fundraising initiative by the Rotary Club of Ringwood with proceeds supporting the community and not-for-profit organisations. Last year’s Golf Day raised funds for the introduction of CCTV cameras at Ringwood Station and this year the Club is aiming to contribute to the purchase of a fully accessible vehicle for use within the wider community.

Membership is also an important aspect of the Club and I have been assisting the Membership Committee in considering options for the introduction of Corporate Members. The inclusion of a Corporate Membership category will assist the Club in linking businesses with the wider community and planning is underway to determine the best methods for developing a Corporate Membership program.

The Rotary Club of Ringwood meets each Wednesday evening at Club Ringwood, Corner of Maroondah Highway and Oban Road in Ringwood. For further details please visit www.ringwoodrotary.org.au.
