If you are interested in coming along to a meeting to see what we do and meet our other members, you can just show up, but it is probably wise to contact us first by email, at membership@rotaryadelaidelight.org.

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

Affirmation

United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.

 

Rotary Club of Adelaide Light Mission Statement

To be recognised as the Service Club of Choice in the Eastern Precinct of Adelaide because we are a Friendly Breakfast Club that appeals to a broad range of busy people who want to make a difference to local and international communities.

 

Home of 3 Past District Governors

Home of 3 Past District Governors

Since the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light was chartered on 12 June 1986, three members have been elected to the highest District position - that of District Governor - overseeing the needs of the 40-50 autonomous clubs within District 9500. For a club that is 29 years old, it is pleasing that we have welcomed members with the commitment, vision, Rotary values and ethos of "Service Above Self" who have sought to serve as District Governors. Our first member to seek office was our club's Charter President District Governor 1993-94 Anthony (Tony) Reade; followed by District Governor 2005-05 Katina Jones; and then John Campbell 2014-15.

District Governor John Campbell (2014-15)
Adelaide-born John Campbell spent his first three years in Cummins, Eyre Peninsula and returned to Adelaide to attend Adelaide Boys High School where he joined the Interact Club (sponsored by the Rotary Club of Adelaide). He then joined Rotaract in 1971 and held Club Board and District positions. While working in Port Pirie, he joined Apex and in 2000, John joined the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light and was President in 2011-12.
John worked in the financial services industry including his own insurance agency and, later, financial planning practice. John has been an active member of several financial adviser associations and was admitted as a Life Member of the Million Dollar Round Table (now Premier Association of Financial Professionals) where he was SA Chair from 2004-2009 and Australian Chair for 2010-2012. PDG John's wife, Julie, was a Rotary Exchange student to Belem Para in Brazil in 1971 and later joined the Rotaract Club of Edwardstown including a stint as Club President. Julie became a member of the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light in 2014.

Image Past District Governor Katina Jones (2004-05)
In the 1990s, Katina recognised the need for a development and training centre focusing on a sustainable future in a rapidly changing world, thus founding EQUALS International Pty Ltd. Twenty years on, EQUALS International has been established in Asia, Europe, Americas, Africa and the Middle East. As a successful business owner, Katina’s passion for industry-driven vocational education and training, continues to motivate her to make a difference in the vocational education sector and workplace.
Katina joined the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light in 1996 as their first female member. Katina was  elected as District 9500's first female District Governor during Rotary's centennial year of 2004-2005. Among other appointments, Katina has served on Australia’s Executive Committee for UNIFEM (United Nations Development Fund for Women), Cancer Care, TAFE SA, Voices for Women and as a Rotary International training leader - training incoming District Governors from around the globe. For 20 years, Katina has represented Australia at the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations in New York and more recently was appointed as a delegate to the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

ImagePast District Governor Tony Reade OAM (1993-94)
Tony Reade joined the Rotary Club of Adelaide in 1985 and was involved in the formation of the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light, being Charter President of the new Club - the first breakfast club in District 9500 - in 1986-87.
Tony undertook many District committee roles before being elected District Governor for  1993-94.  He innovated many changes to the annual District Conference that saw a marked increase in attendees - over 800 attendees.
When he moved his city-based business, he transferred to his local club of Walkerville (where his wife had been a Rotarian since 1990) including taking on the Presidency in 2002-03 before transferring back to the club of his heart - Adelaide Light - about six years later.
PDG Tony's wife, Yvette was President of the Rotary Club of Walkerville in 2004-05, transferred to the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light in 2006 and was elected President of Adelaide Light for 2014-15. PDG Tony was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia on 25 January 2011 for 40 years of service to the community particularly through Toc H Australia, Rotary International and as Councillor (and Acting Mayor) of the City of Walkerville.  Tony was awarded an Honorary Membership of the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light on 5 June 2016.
