Kathy Monley – 18 years’ service

Kathy Monley has been a member of the Rotary Club of Templestowe for 18 years with one interruption when she and Tony were posted overseas.

Kathy has also been very closely involved with Youth Exchange and has been Youth Director for our club and served on the Youth Services District Committee. She and Tony have home-hosted 11 Youth Exchange students and were most recently counselors for our soon departing inbound student Neele Huebner.

Kathy was President of our club in 2016/17.

Kathy is a very ‘hands on’ operator and while President she also ran our major fundraiser, Finns Family Festival. She was also instrumental in the club earning a substantial sum carrying out car parking duties for a food truck festival and presided over a very successful fundraising dinner for Parkinson’s Disease.

Kathy has also been club Fundraising Director on a number of occasions, most recently in the last 12 months.  Kathy project managed our High Tea for Brain Cancer Research, ran our Finns Family Festival and implemented our involvement in Bunnings BBQs in Eltham.

Kathy also works hard at Doncare in their emergency Food Pantry.

Kathy was appointed as President of ABCD in July 2017, a role that she still currently holds and in the coming Rotary year will be AG Kingston Cluster A.

Kathy has made the decision to leave the Rotary Club of Templestowe and join the Rotary Club of Manningham.

We thank Kathy for the major contribution that she has made to our club over the past 18 years and wish her every success for her future in Rotary.
