Past President ,Dr Daryl Moran has been appointed as District Governor Elect to serve as Governor of our District in 2021-22.

A particular passion for Daryl has been the establishment of Earlyact clubs for primary aged children and he is pleased to note that D9810 now sponsors five such clubs. His son was a Youth Exchange student to Germany from this District in 1994 and Daryl and Jenny have been hosts and guardians to four such international students.
Daryl and Jenny have a son and a daughter and five grandchildren. Having recently retired from secondary school teaching, Jenny has also become a Rotarian at Rowville-Lysterfield and is already an active member with a personal interest in the Days for Girls program.
Both Daryl and Jenny are looking forward to the wonderful opportunity to further serve D9810 into the future and are greatly encouraged by the warm wishes and support they have already received.
