Presidents Message

President's Message 2022-23

The Rotary Club of Carlton has had as the tagline for most of its 37 years “Caring for Carlton”.  There are so many worthy projects that support the lives of residents in our community, many more than all the current organisations can support.  We have supported many, directly particularly through the local schools, migrant and refugee groups, as well as support for programs run by others.

Research tells us that young people volunteer their time more than any other group, even retirees.  But they also have strong preferences when deciding how to dedicate their time.  Our plan for the coming year is to ask young people what they think is an important hands-on project needed in the Carlton community, and tell us briefly how they would undertake it.  We will then post the best ideas on social media for voting.  We will put the people who support the project that receives the most votes in touch with each other and the project proposer, and offer to support their project with project planning and management advice.

I look forward to announcing the project that young people have chosen, and sharing how it progresses during the year.

DG Amanda Wendt  

RI President Jennifer Jones imagines a Rotary where members act to make their dreams become reality and they make the most of their club experiences. She urges members to engage more with each other and use these connections to build partnerships that change the world.

Rotarians worldwide are inspired by the Rotary theme of “Service Above Self” and are guided by reference to ‘The Four-Way Test’. In particular, ‘The Four-Way Test’ challenges Rotarians, in everything they do, to ask of themselves:

“Of the things we think say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
