District Governor Neta Kirby

Neta presented President Tony with Certificate, congratulating Yea RC on being a Level 1 Club for support to Rotary Foundation.
Neta hales from Tatura, and is a member of Tatura RC and proudly steps up to the DG Role, ensuring she connects with clubs in District 9790. A parent of 4 adult children, grandmother to 8 grandchildren and working as a therapist, counselling children aged 2—18 who are experiencing domestic and family violence. Neta is a keen motor bike rider, riding a 3 wheeler ‘Spider’ as her wheels these days.
Neta has chosen a project close to her heart as her partners project, “Lifes Little Treasures Foundation”, supported by her children, after experiencing as a grand-mother, the emotional and physical toll on her family (daughter & son in law) upon the premature birth of twin sons. Leigh survived for 30 hours and Max is now a ro-bust 6 year old with a resulting hearing impairment. The Foundation supports fami-lies of premature and sick babies during this crucial time, with travel vouchers, premature baby packs, play groups and support for siblings, grandparents and ex-tended families. RAWCS has adopted it as a project and generous donations have already been received.
Neta also advocates for “No to Domestic Violence”, and encourages us to be kind and respectful, supporting the cause which is endorsed by Zone 8, and Districts in northern NSW.
The District conference will be held in Shepparton, 19,20 & 21 April 2024. The Conference Team is working hard putting the program together, including activities, guest speakers and dinner dance. Book early!
Vote of thanks to Neta from President Tony, and committing $1000 donation to her partners project, “Lifes Little Treasures Foundation”.
