Jennifer Jones - 2023 president

Jennifer Jones

Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s President for 2022-23, a ground-breaking selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in the organization’s 115-year history.
Jones will officially become president-nominee on 1 October if no other candidates challenge her.
Jones says she sees Rotary’s Action Plan as a catalyst for increasing Rotary’s impact.
“As we reflect upon our new strategic priorities, we could have never envisioned that our ability to adapt would become our North Star during what is inarguably the most profound time in recent history,” Jones said in her vision statement. “Silver linings rise out of the most challenging circumstances. Using metric-driven goals, I will harness this historic landscape to innovate, educate, and communicate opportunities that reflect today’s reality.”
As the first woman to be nominated to be president, Jones understands how important it is to follow through on Rotary’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement. “I believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion … begins at the top and for us to realize growth in female membership and members under the age of forty — these demographics need to see their own reflection in leadership,” Jones said. “I will champion double-digit growth in both categories while never losing sight of our entire family.”

Rotary - What Is It About?

Our Rotary Club has many projects on the go!

Upper Murray Bushfire Crisis Hay Project

A truck loaded with 10 rolls of donated Silage, driven by volunteer Rotarian Geoff Dinning from Appin Park took the trip from Upper Sandy Creek to Cudegwa on Wednesday March 18 to a very grateful Karen and Dave Land.

For Cudgewa farmers Dave and Karen, who spent a lot of time defending theirs and other farms, the load of silage was a sight for sore eyes to say the least.

"When a fire hits, you're not thinking straight," Mr Land said. "You're racing around to try to put it out. My property's been burned and some farmers around here were hit really bad and have lost all of their grass."

Mr Land fought his emotions as help arrived in the form of a truck of feed driven by volunteer Rotarian Geoff Dinning.

"The generosity of people like Geoff and Rosanna Rotary, to come up with the feed, is something else," Mr Land said. "It's just fantastic.

On the 17th Anniversary of the death of Ralph Ragazzon, Barrie Williams outlined the history of the son of a migrant family brought up in Reservoir, attended tertiary medical training in Melbourne and post graduate study leading to his membership of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons. As Vocational Services Director of the Club, he established a bursary for a student at St Martin of Tours Macleod to help with the transition cost from primary to secondary college on the recommendation of the Principal. Essentially. It was for the best “team player” in the graduating Year 6 class with this year’s recipient being the highly commended Joshua Curtain.

Latrobe Secondary College Garden Bed Project

On Saturday 19th January 2019, members of our club, Brian Summers, Don Hamilton and Ian Bushby worked extremely hard in 22 deg. temperature, (thank goodness) to get these garden beds finished. At that point, there was just a little bit more to get them to completed stage. We will added the completed images when they come in.
