Members Statement: Rotary Club of Brimbank Central

Mr CARROLL (Niddrie) — I rise to congratulate the Rotary Club of Brimbank Central on its recent annual golf charity day and subsequent dinner auction held on 28 February, which raised some $12 365 for local community projects. This was my introduction to the Rotary Club of Brimbank Central, and it was wonderful to see firsthand what a committed, community‑focused organisation it is, like so many other Rotary clubs throughout Victoria. The annual golf charity day has been going strong for 15 years, and an amazing $92 577 has so far been raised.

I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate the following Rotarians on their outstanding efforts in making the annual golf charity day such a success: golf committee members; Jack Watson; program chairman John Rafter; Barbara Rafter; Richard Carthew; Rotary president Bert Mom; the master of ceremonies, David Bennett; and finally the auctioneer for the night, Alan Puli, who did an outstanding job in raising the
money on the items donated. The Rotary Club of Brimbank Central is in good hands, and I wish it another 15 years of success with its annual golf charity day and dinner auction.
