Rotary Club of Penrith welcomes new president

THE Rotary Club of Penrith has a new President, and it is well-known and much-loved local florist, Joh Dickens!

Joh, who is renowned for her beautiful fresh flowers at Kingswood Florist has been a member of Penrith Rotary for around three years.  She is the third female President in the history of Penrith Rotary.

Speaking about her 12-month term and what she plans to achieve in the year ahead, Joh said her focus will be on working with other local rotary clubs and making a bigger impact. 

“I’d really like to connect more with the other clubs in the Penrith area and work together on bigger projects. We can really make a huge difference if the three clubs band together,” Joh said.

If you would like to join Rotary and make a difference in the local community, Joh said they are always looking to expand the membership base.

“More members are always needed,” Joh said.  “If you’d like to join, you can just do what you can, when you can.  Members don’t have to commit to attending every meeting or every fundraising BBQ.

“You can be as involved as you wish, and meet lots of people.  Rotary is a world-wide organisation with a proud history.”
