Fitzroy Rotary - A Visit Home

DG Martin, Mum Bernadette and Dad Denis Garcia. 
It was great to be back home in the Fitzroy area where I grew up and where my parents still live. 

Fitzroy Rotary is involved in a wide range of projects ranging from reading in schools to walkway buggy rides for rest home residents and fundraising barbeques.  They are flexible in their meeting styles with a committee night in the first week of the month and an associates night on the third week of every month. 

President Barry Styles
It was again a special night for Denise and I as my parents were both at the meeting - Bernadette and Denis, who is a Past-President of Fitzroy Rotary, PHF and Honorary Member.  Assistant Governor Colin Jackson accompanied us to a meeting with the Board and then the subsequent Club meeting. 

When I was last at the Fitzroy Beach St Hall, I had the honour of presenting Barry Styles with a PHF Sapphire pin on behalf of his Club.  Barry has taken up the Presidency again and he and members gave us all a very friendly welcome.
