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.
