The club welcomed new Glenferrie Rotarian Catherine Eagleson to the club on July 26th at a club meeting at which she was also the guest speaker. Catherine is new to Glenferrie, but she has been a Rotarian since 2006 when she joined the Rotary Club of Bellarine North. Catherine is a Past President of Rotary Bellarine North (2017-2018), is a Paul Harris Fellow and is a recipient of a Royce Abbey Award from her club. She has also been a Past District Chair for Australian Rotary Health.

Catherine recently moved from her home in Portarlington to a new place in Glen Iris and was looking to transfer to a new club nearby. The very high profile work that Rotary Glenferrie was doing with the Lift the Lid Golf Day caught her eye and she decided there and then that the Rotary Club of Glenferrie, with it's strong support for the work of Australian Rotary Health, is the club for her. Catherine has already made a great number of friends in the club, and has made her mark early by doing her Member Behind the Badge talk within minutes of being inducted! And what an interesting story it is (see Meeting Report)
We are so glad you have chosen Rotary Glenferrie for your new Rotary home Catherine. We look forward to many years working and playing alongside you, doing good in the world.
