At the end of 2020, the Rotary Club of Campbelltown sponsored and helped establish the Interact Club of Charles Campbell College. Interact Clubs involve members between the ages of 14 and 18 – our secondary students. At the same time, through Nikki the chair of our club’s Youth Committee, we supported Charles Campbell College to establish an EarlyAct Club for students in the primary years, up to the age of 13. The mission of EarlyAct is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through student service - so that with the committed citizenship and effective leadership they can improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. At a young age, students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Young people are open to recognise the dignity and worth of each individual, thereby building their respect for others. Earlyacters engage in character building activities that prepare them for leadership roles - they carry out projects which benefit others. In addition to supporting their school’s Breakfast Club, the EarlyAct Club has initiated a Backpack Project to help those experiencing homelessness. Three members of the board of the new Earlyact club - President Lily, Vice President Tahlia, and Treasurer Ruby discussed their project to the club below.
Introduction by Veronica Dottore:
It is my great pleasure to introduce our speaker who is going to enlighten us about what to expect in the topic “The Coming Year” Jeff Neale’s involvement started about 50 years ago, attending’ Family Meetings’ at the Rotary Club of Campbelltown with his parents Reg n Shirley Neale. Jeff joined the club in 1990 n served as President in 2007 - 2008. He is a Paul Harris Fellow with 3 sapphires. Jeff is married to Jenny, they have 3 adult children and a new grandson. He is the Dealer Principal of Paradise Mazda, a family business started by his father. Please join me in welcoming Jeff Neale who is our newly elected District Governor.
District Governor Jeff Neale presented Member Alyssa Morran with a Paul Harris Award in recognition of her contribution of $1000 to the Rotary Foundation. Alyssa said she made the commitment to pay a small recurring monthly payment some years ago as she believed in the Rotary Foundation and it was so easy to set up and she can show any members who would like to do the same, how it is done.
 
At our meeting on the 12th July District Governor Jeff Neale introduced his father Reg Neale who was the 1966 foundation member of the Club.
Note : Reg was unable to attend Jeff’s District Governor Induction at last Sunday’s District Conference due to Covid restrictions but it was a great pleasure & honour for both Jeff, members and guests, to have Reg at the first Campbelltown 2021-2022 meeting with Jeff as the new District Governor for the Rotary Year 2021-2022.
