Awardee: Robert Webster – Willetton Rotary Club

Past President Rob Webster is a Rotarian who has given long and
distinguished service This began when he joined the Rotary Club
of Scarborough in 1983. In the following 24 years he served with
distinction in many Club & District roles including Secretary and
President, Chair of the District 9450 Youth Exchange Committee
and Chair of the District 9450 Conference Committee. As a
consequence of these activities he was not only awarded a Paul
Harris Fellow but also two sapphires.

In 2007 Rob transferred to the Rotary Club of Willetton and continued his Club building ways by being actively involved in numerous Club activities including the Club’s Annual Community Fair plus the roles of Director International Service, President, Assistant Governor and in 2012/2013 Membership Director. In this
last role Rob was instrumental in recruiting, inducting and training nine new members, five of whom were females. All but one (who left due to employment pressures) are still members. In addition while President in 2010/2011, Rob was the instigator in the Willetton region of the very successful Vocational Service Project, Microscopes in Schools. He also represented the Club at the District Conference in 2011 and also attended the Busselton conference in 2013.

Not content with his many achievements, in 2013/2014 Rob willingly stepped up to Chair the District Conference Committee. He led the committee with distinction and brought his considerable managerial and psychological skills to bear to mould Club members into a very effective effective team who in turn produced an outstanding event.

Rob’s dedication to Rotary and his unassuming but very effective style and presence have contributed in a most significant way to the Rotary cause and through that to building two Clubs the most recent being the Rotary Club of Willetton. He is therefore a very deserving winner of the Club Builder Award.

His nomination for this award is supported by
• Past President David Honeychurch
• Past President Peter Cullen
• Past President Wayne Hand
• Past President Stuart Diggins

All service clubs, and not for profit groups in the City of South Perth are contacted and asked to nominate a volunteer who goes above and beyond. Every year the successful recipient receives a plaque to honour their volunteering commitments, and is given $500 towards a charity of their choice.  In 2013 Scott and his wife Robynne attended a half day visit to a working farm in Perenjori to learn about biodiversity and the challenges of farming practices in extreme environments.

in Mandurah, Busselton and also Kalgoorlie, and was influential
in encouraging a strong contingent to represent the club at these
events. Scott has also attended the last three District Changeovers.
