Holroyd Rotary Club

Dr HUGH McDERMOTT (Prospect) [1.17 p.m.]: I draw to the attention of the House and congratulate the Rotary Club of Holroyd, which is one of the great community organisations in the electorate of Prospect. On 20 June the club held its changeover ceremony when former president Jerry Duma retired and new president John Heslop took over. The ceremony included presentation of a number of Paul Harris Fellow awards. I congratulate Maria Feil, John Melbourne, Helen Whitford and Frank Williams. I also congratulate Rod O'Donoghue and Rob Feil on presentation of their fifth and third Sapphire Pins respectively. Club members should be congratulated on their outstanding support of Rotary ideas and for service above self that they have demonstrated during the Rotary year. The club made a donation of $10,000 to support Holroyd Community Aid. Special mention should be made of the community chest and Christmas trove raffles, which have enabled some 40 community organisations to raise more than $158,000 and funding of $6,000 for Rotary. I congratulate the Rotary Club of Holroyd.
