Fifty Years As A Rotarian!

At recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Mundaring, the long service of our member, Laurence (Larry) Ursich, was recognised by the club and by the Government of Western Australia.

Larry was presented with the WA Volunteer Award “In recognition of 50 years of voluntary service in WA, making a difference for local communities.” The award comprised a certificate of recognition and a medallion (pictured above), which were presented to him by District Governor Lindsay Dry at a special dinner meeting attended by 40 members, partners, friends and family.

Rotarian, David Brockway, spoke eloquently of Larry’s Rotary history and of his involvement in his original club, RC Kalamunda, and in this club. He emphasised his contribution to the smooth running of the Rotary Mundaring Sunday Markets. Larry has manned the announcer’s desk for the 11 years that the market has been in operation. This involved making numerous announcements, controlling the music played over the PA system and collecting the payments from the stall holders, hence the caricature above, also presented to him at the dinner.

In his acceptance speech, Larry spoke of the contribution his wife, Kathleen,has made insupporting him throughout his Rotary life,  He then went on to thank all wives who have supported, and continue to support, Rotarians in all clubs and proposed a toast to the ‘Ladies of Rotary’. This was enthusiastically received and endorsed by all of the gentlemen in the room.

Congratulations Larry. Excellent work well done!
