Members from the Rotary Club of Horsham East, with representatives from kindred organisations, and friends gathered at the Horsham Saints function rooms to celebrate the 2021-22 Rotary year, and induct the 2022-23 Club President. Outgoing President Pam Clarke gave a overview of her year as president. Even though the past 12 months has thrown up many obstacles due to the pandemic, it was a successful year for the club. The club was able to distribute just over $16,000 to support various youth and other programs, as well of supporting other charitable groups. The club thanked President Pam for her leadership during the past 12 months. Jim Delahunty was welcomed in as the clubs President for 2022-23, after his induction, Jim introduced his board to the attendees. Alison Roberts was also recognised for her support to the club as a friend of rotary.
Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones (who is also our first female president) has announced the 2022-23 theme Imagine Rotary.
“Imagine, a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”
The theme is a special one: the theme graphic was designed by an Australian Indigenous artist to link with the Melbourne Convention in 2023. Some of the symbolism includes:
 
> Circle connections to one another
> Dots around it - our people
> There are 7 Dots for Rotary's 7 areas of focus
> Circle + dots around it - a navigation star, our guiding light
> Green solid line - digging stick (used when doing hard work); for us it's People of Action, represents the tools for getting things done
> The colours purple, green & white - celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion
> Freedom to express ourselves differently but still with a special connection
> Purple is also the colour of Rotary's Polio campaign
> Green represents the Environment
> White stands for peace; it also represents Empowerment and > Newness and also the colours were utilised for the women's movement, highlighting the opportunity to grow our female membership.
 
On Wednesday the 23rd of June 2021, the Changeover Dinner for the Rotary Club of Horsham East was held at the Horsham Golf Club.  This year we were able to invite guests to the evening to thank President Zane for his leadership during the past 12 months.   The last year has been tough for all voluntary organisations across the world, and our club was fortunate that Zane took on these challenges, and even with these challenges the club had a highly successful year.    With Zane’s leadership, and the support of club members and friends of Rotary, the club adapted to new ways to have meetings, gatherings, and running fundraising opportunities.    We congratulate Zane for his year as president and thank him for his leadership during this COVID period.
 
Pam Clarke was installed as our President for 2021-22, and we wish her all the best for the coming 12 months.

At a joint meeting of the Rotary Clubs of Horsham, Horsham East,  Warracknabeal, Nhill, and Camberwell was held in Horsham to present a Paul Harris Fellow recognition to the Wimmera Cancer Centre. The Cancer Centre is part of the Wimmera Health Care Group. The recognition is named for the founder of Rotary, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905. 
PHF recognition carries with it no obligations or costs to its recipients. It is a simple expression of thanks and respect from Rotarians. For individuals it provides a badge, a medallion and a certificate signed by the Chair of the Rotary Foundation Trustees and the President of Rotary International. For organisations, those items are attractively mounted and framed for display at their premises.  
The reasons for the well-deserved recognition relates to the extraordinary community respect and gratitude for the Wimmera Cancer Centre that are clearly evident in the Wimmera Community and for the pivotal role that the centre played in the early establishment of our Rotary “ROMP” program.
 
Even though this has been a hard year for all local service clubs, the Rotary Club of Horsham East has fortunately been in a position to make some donations to assist other organisations.  Some of benefices of our donations have been Camp Quality, Centre of Participation, Healthy Smiles Dental Program, Christian Emergency Food Bank, Fiona Elsey Research Institute, International Women's Day, Polio Australia, Salvation Army, Spirit West Foundation, Youth Science Challenge, SayNo2 Family Violence and Wimmera Hospice.  We are proud to have been in a position to support these organisations.  Thanks to all local businesses and local / district residents that have supported our various fundraising efforts over the last year.
 
Tonight Wednesday 1st of July the Rotary Club of Horsham East held it's annual Changeover Dinner.  The dinner was held at the Olde Horsham Restaurant.   Due to social distancing rules only 20 members could attend the changeover.  President Tom Gallagher handed to baton over to President Elect Zane Bell.  Congratulations to Tom as his year as President in these extremely trying times.  All the best to Zane for your upcoming year.
