Mark Daniel Maloney, of the Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, USA, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2019-20. He will be declared the president-nominee on 1 October if no challenging candidates have been suggested.
“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” says Maloney, an attorney. He aims to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth.

"When a fire hits, you're not thinking straight," Mr Land said. "You're racing around to try to put it out. My property's been burned and some farmers around here were hit really bad and have lost all of their grass."

The Four Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Rosanna Rotary Club was formed just over in 1973. Formerly known as the Heidelberg North Rotary club. We have just celebrated our 46th Anniversary at the Austrian Club in Heidelberg West with over 100 members, former members, partners and guests attending.
Rotary is a grass roots organisation with most of its service efforts being carried out in local communities. The District and International structure is designed to provide direction and support to the Clubs in their efforts providing service to their communities and abroad, encouraging high ethical standards in all their undertakings and most importantly in building peace and goodwill in the world.
