Message from The Club President
From the President Matthew Playford:
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Camden
I have been given the honour of leading our club in its 70th year. What lies ahead is both exciting and challenging.
Camden Rotary has a long and proud history of serving our community and being involved in projects both national and international.
Rotary’s motto of ‘Service above Self’ is more than just mere words, it is belief and commitment. I am so honoured to be amongst individuals who dare to make a difference and engage as one to help those who need it most. Rotary’s core values are relevant globally and have made a difference everywhere Rotary has had the opportunity to serve.
Rotary International has a theme this year of ‘Rotary Serving Humanity’. Every one of us has something to give, be it by deed or action, which can make this world a better place. Camden Rotary has projects for the year ahead to help those amongst us less fortunate. We have a local project to help children with special needs and their carers. We will be in our local schools helping those students about to get their license and start driving on how to make decisions that will save their lives and others. We will be helping our senior citizens who wish to continue to live at home and maintain their independence. International projects we are involved in are the fight to eradicate polio, which we are nearly there and restoring sight to those in poorer countries affected by cataract blindness.
These are just a few of the projects undertaken by the Rotarians amongst us who want to make a difference to our world locally and internationally and will embrace the theme of ‘Rotary Serving Humanity’.
Anyone who wishes to be a part of the Rotary way and would like the opportunity to give back to our community, please visit us on Thursday evenings from 6.30pm at the Camden Sports Club. We enjoy fellowship and a meal as well as having an invited guest speaker to make for a very interesting night. Please join us and I promise you will be made very welcome!
President 2016/2017 ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
