Less formalities and more fun
A NEW Rotary club has been formed on the Central Coast with the philosophy of “come when you can, do what you can”.

Rotary Club of Brisbane Water is aimed at people from all walks of life and ages, who may have found the formalities of more traditional Rotary clubs off-putting.
Club president and long-time Rotarian Peter Mote, said he, along with his fellow Rotarians, wife Jayne and Paola Liverani, saw a need for such a club on the Peninsula.
Attracting about 25 interested people from a range of backgrounds, the club got the tick from Rotary International at the beginning of July.
“The club will appeal to people who want to join the Rotary family but have always thought it may be too much of a commitment, financially and time-wise,” Mr Mote said.
“But Rotary is no longer just about dinner meetings of professional men and women. It is for anyone who wants to make a difference in their community or with some of Rotary’s international projects. It is also about meeting like-minded people and having fun.”
The club has the support of Ettalong Diggers Club, where members will meet, either or for coffee mornings or evening non-dinner meetings.
“Members can choose either the morning meetings or evening, or both, to allow for people's different circumstances, twice a month,” Mr Mote said.
“The emphasis will be on doing Rotary in a slightly different way, with members contributing in any way they are able to.”
But the Rotary commitment to helping local and overseas communities is still the guiding light of the Brisbane Water club.
The club already has already rallied behind the Coast Shelter, which cares for victims of domestic violence and homelessness, collecting toiletries and pantry items.
The club is looking for new members, of all ages and walks of life, who want to help the community and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
“We want this club to be fun, while helping the community, locally and as part of Rotary's international work,” Mr Mote said.
