Perth Rotary: Don's 50 Years

50 Years of Service Above Self.  Don Mazzucchelli, PHF.

I first met Don Mazzucchelli at a lunch meeting.  It was to be my induction into the Rotary Club of Perth. Don got me up in front of over 100 members in attendance and proceeded to recite the Induction Charge staring me straight in the eye.   I did say recite, not read.  In his almost 2 minutes of unbroken stare straight into my eyes while reciting the Induction Charge, Don made me realise how serious he was in the words he rendered.  Because of that conviction, I still live by that promise I made all those years ago for Service Above Self to my community.

Congratulations President Vangelis
Dear Rotarians and friends,
Congratulations President Vangelis on taking up the mantle of President of the Perth Rotary Club and gratitude to Past President Wesley who was always so kind and considered in his approach to any and every task or request made of him during his presidency.  It was a pleasure to organise your Changeover Dinner and it certainly was a great night, full of surprises, celebration, recognition, music, fine wine and dancing.

Let’s Strengthen Community and not just Serve It
Let’s Strengthen Community and not just Serve It

Community life isn’t what it used to be! Evidence shows that compared with the mid-1980s, Australians today have four fewer close friends: people they could talk with frankly, without having to watch their words. 18% of people say they have no one to turn to in times of difficulty. Only one in three people know their immediate neighbour’s name, with a corresponding figure for how many people trust their neighbours. Over 40% of people in nursing homes never get a visitor…simply, levels of neighbour connection, trust and mental health are at all time low, with the experiences of loneliness and depression at all-time highs. Maybe, the way governments and service agencies ’do community’ needs challenging? Maybe less ‘to’ and ‘for’ community, and more ‘with’ and ‘by/of’ the community. Less ‘servicing’ community, more ‘strengthening’ community’. Less ’wrapping services’ around people, and more ‘wrapping community’. Less viewing and calling people ’clients’, ‘customers’, ‘patients’ and ‘consumers’…more engaging them as ‘co-owners’, ‘co-producers’, ‘co-designers’ and in fact ‘citizens’. 

A community enthusiast and social entrepreneur, Peter has worked with 2000+ communities across Australia and in 59 countries seeking to facilitate fresh and creative ways that stimulate community and local economic renewal. Motivated by the desire to create caring, healthy, inclusive and enterprising communities, Peter, through his organisation, the Bank of I.D.E.A.S (Initiatives for the Development of Enterprising Action and Strategies), helps communities spark their own ideas and invest themselves in building sustainable futures. A significant part of the organisation's income is returned to innovative community initiatives. In the last year, he has worked with 70 communities from Marble Bar to Gnowangerup, Launceston to Cairns, and convened and facilitated community building conferences in Australia, India, Canada and New Zealand.   A keen author, Peter has written 16 books on community and economic development, youth policy and enterprise. Peter’s passion and purpose sees him traverse the globe continuously in his relentless desire to enable communities to discover their strengths and transform themselves. In 2011, he was a recipient of a Centenary Medal for his work with rural communities, and in 2017, was the WA Senior Western Australia in acknowledgement of his community entrepreneurialism.
