03 March 2011

To the Rotarians of District 9500
My dear brothers and sisters in Rotary:
More than 75 years ago, Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, wrote, “The world is constantly changing, and Rotary must be prepared to change with it.” It is a truism that has held through decades and across continents, in tens of thousands of Rotary clubs throughout the world.
Change is why we are here, and what we strive for. We are not satisfied with the lowest common denominator, for Rotary is anything but common. We see the world not as it is, but as it might be; and we believe, as Mohandas Gandhi said, that we must be the change we wish to see in the world.
In your clubs and your homes, throughout your district, each of you has the potential to be the change of which you dream. In this Rotary year, as we Reach within to Embrace Humanity, I ask all of you to strive without fear or limitation, to open your minds and your hearts to the possibilities of Rotary service. Do not hesitate, do not falter; rather stay steadfastly on the path that is set forth for you. Let me paraphrase the poet Robert Frost and say ...
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
Let’s enjoy the journey.
Sincerely,

Kalyan Banerjee

President, 2011-2012

RI ZONE 8 DIRECTOR



Stuart Heal

RI Director 2010/12

Rotary Club of Cromwell

Cromwell , Central Otago

New Zealand
Stuart has enjoyed a successful and varied business career. He was CEO of New Zealand’s largest agricultural supply co-operative for 20 years until 2004. He is now self employed as a business mentor and a director of a number of companies across many different sectors including manufacturing, wine, health, power generation, retail and forestry.

Stuart came into Rotary following selection as a team member on Group Study Exchange. He went to Nigeria in 1987 as a member of the team from District 9980. Much earlier, in 1971, he won a Rotary Youth Leadership award and attended District 9920 RYLA that year. He subsequently joined the Dunedin Rotary Club in 1987. He was Club President in 1994/95 and District Governor in District 9980 in 1999/2000.

He was involved with the GSE programme as District chair in 1991-1993 and his wife, Adrienne, is currently a member of the District GSE committee. Stuart has been a member of the Management Committee for RDU, our regional magazine, for the past five years. He has also been a training leader at International Assembly twice (2003, 2004) and remains a member of his District’s training team.

In 2005 he was awarded the Citation of Meritorious Service from the Rotary Foundation following three years as Foundation Chair for the District.

Stuart and Adrienne have hosted five Rotary Youth Exchange students and are very supportive of Rotary Youth programmes. They have two sons and a daughter - all pursuing successful business and professional careers - and the family has recently welcomed two daughters-in-law into the fold. Adrienne is also a Rotarian and was Cromwell club President in 2008/09.

Leisure time is spent with family and, in the finest New Zealand traditions, enjoying good food, wine, gardening, travel, rugby and cricket.

DISTRICT GOVERNOR



Eric Russell (Julie)

Phone 08 8357 8898

Mobile 0402 315 292

Email ericrussell@adam.com.au

Eric was born in Queensland and served an apprenticeship as a boilermaker. In 1971 whilst a professional rugby league player in Port Moresby, he crashed his car and sustained a spinal cord injury. Eric was rehabilitated in Brisbane and as he says it was “the beginning of a different life path”.

Inspired by athletes training at the spinal injuries unit Eric represented Australia at 18 international competitions, winning 26 gold medals (four Paralympic) and setting 14 world records in field events. In administration he served on state, national and then international committees, in addition he is a level 2 Coach and International Classifier.

In 1985, Eric was inducted into the Rotary Club of Adelaide, moving to Adelaide Parks in 1989. He twice served as President of Adelaide Parks. At District level Eric served two years as Assistant Governor and is on the Marketing and Promotions committee.

In 1981 Eric was awarded an MBE and an Advance Australia Award, in 2003 a PHF and Sapphire this year. Eric was made a Life Member of Wheelchair Sports SA in 2007.

Eric’s hobbies include motor sport, both rugby codes, cricket and, as Julie says, the Crows. However, quality time is spent in his home workshop making and mending all manner of things.

Meeting Julie, who also represented Australia in wheelchair sport, and deciding to marry her in 1979 after only thirteen days in each other’s company was, as Eric put it, “the best quick decision of my life”. Julie’s support was pivotal in Eric’s decision to seek nomination as District Governor.

With the belief that the strength of Rotary is in its clubs and club strength is its members, Eric is excited at the opportunity to serve those members.

Marie Dorrington (Ken)
Phone 08 8269 3398

Mobile 04 1786 3316

Email mdorring@bigpond.net.au





Marie was born in South Australia where she has spent most of her life. Educated at secondary, tertiary and post graduate level in Adelaide, she has been involved in teaching and educational leadership since that time. In 1986, she became Principal of St Mary’s College, a role she had for more than 18 years. This passion for learning has continued with a part-time consultancy in education which has enabled her to travel widely.

A member of the Rotary Club of Adelaide West since 1997 when she became a member in response to the involvement of the club in supporting St Mary’s College, Marie has been President of the Club (2001-2002) and has enjoyed being involved in a range of activities within it.

At District level, Marie has been involved in a number of roles, including chairing the Group Study Exchange Committee for two years, District Secretary in 2008-09 and Assistant Governor Group 1 for 2009-10 and 2010-11. Marie was also Host Counsellor for an Ambassadorial Scholar from Japan in 2009 and 2010, and she is a Club Visioning Facilitator.

Marie and Ken have two wonderful children (and a wonderful daughter-in-law and son-in-law) and are grandparents of Alexander, Emma and Hamish, with whom they love spending time. They also share an interest in reading, travel, football and gardening.

Long passionate about ensuring that an opportunity is given to all people of all ages, cultures and geographical areas to be healthy, active, cared for and creative members of a peaceful, sustainable and productive society, Marie hopes that she is able to continue to contribute to the wonderful work of Rotary to help bring this closer for all.

Barbara became very involved with sport, in particular Calisthenics, and this led to the opportunity to move back to Adelaide when Kirsti was selected as a member of the Junior State team in 1982. Barbara then took up the position of chaperone to two State Senior Calisthenics teams in 1984 & 1985.

Barbara joined the Apple & Pear Growers Association of SA Inc in 1988 and worked with the Association for almost 20 years.
