Recent Accomplishments of Rotary Club of Bondi Junction:

Here are some examples:

    ROTARACT EASTERN SUBURBS – ROTARY FAMILY GROWS, EMPOWERING FUTURE LEADERS, TODAY!  In terms of doubling the number of the members in its Family by Chartering the a new Rotaract Club, this Rotary Club has become bigger.  Rotary Down Under is featuring an article about the Chartering of RCES that was written in the Club’s April Bulletin.  (Bulletin attached.)

It was a pleasure to work with PE Chris Bennecke (RC Kings Cross) from our co-Chartering of Rotaract Club, and Pres. Ian Johnson.

    In terms of eliminating barriers of what is possible/thinking bigger, by coordinating 5 Rotary Clubs in District 9750 and five Rotary Clubs in CHILE on a project that would see over A$1,000,000 (in replacement value of goods) of donated hospital and school equipment delivered to that Earthquake ravaged country.  The total cost to this Club was A$5,500; and the Rotary Club of Ingleburn contributed a A$500.  Rotarians from RC Maroubra and RC Five Dock came along to help loading the first of 7 shipping containers.  Members from the Chilean community in Sydney also helped enormously throughout the project, and there were some not-yet-Rotarians that helped also.  Rotarian Ross Johnson said that loading this container was the most that he had enjoyed Rotary since he joined (3 yrs.); he felt that he was really doing something helpful.

Rotary International featured an article about the first container that this Club shipped to Chile.  Link CLICK HERE This article was translated into nine different languages; and in a Google Search there are countless Rotary Clubs and Rotary Districts that placed syndicated copies of the article onto their own website.  (Tip: just copy a paragraph of the article, paste it into a Google Search and the results are then listed.)

    The Club also provided New Media training and Internet presence to many Clubs in District 9750 through Pres. Russell’s role as District Webmaster and his pet project to help Clubs in their mastery of New Media technologies – after implementing web portal framework over the past 4 years that enables District and Clubs to be within same digital network.  Thus empowering Clubs to master, leverage new technologies aims to help them to be Bigger, Bolder and Better in their reach.  A Bold objective?

    Royal Hospital for Women’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit – HEALING/SAVING 1000 TINY PATIENT EACH YEAR!  After a thoroughly conducted needs analyses on all hospitals that the Club might consider as the chosen recipient of funding as the major project for the year; RC Bondi Junction arrived at what the Board felt was the very highest vital needs; that of purchasing a $70,000 Neo Natal Ventilator for the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Royal Hospital for Women (Randwick).

The RHW wants to include RC Bondi Junction in their upcoming media releases.

    Implementation of the New Leadership Plan means that this Club now has similar roles as District and RI, thus a better engagement ability; and increased harmony with global objectives.   Then the additional Directorship of New Generations that was proposed by RI this year was also adapted.

    One of President Russell’s objectives was to gather historical facts from the members and ensure that this history was not lost.  Understanding that the culture of an organisation consists of a variety of factors – Values, Heroes & Villains, Symbols and Ritual – it was clear what to look for when receiving information. The Values were best reflected in Rotary’s own 4WAY TEST.
