2023-2024 Graham Fosbery President's Award


In 2001, the Rotary Club of Geraldton launched the production of 645 Limited Edition solid Silver Gull sculptures in aid of the Memorial to HMAS Sydney. RC Karrinyup purchased one of these in support of the Geraldton club's project. The Presidential Award was created in 2003 to recognise outstanding contributions by individuals or groups, who display unselfish and dedicated work, as recognised by the President of the Rotary Club of Karrinyup, over and above that which would normally be expected.

Following the death in 2007 of our Charter President, Graham Fosbery, the Board decreed that the Silver Gull Award be renamed the Graham Fosbery President’s Award in his honour. The Board felt that the work Graham did for others epitomized the finest example of the Rotary motto 'Service above Self'. In recent years, it has been presented by a member of the Fosbery family.

President Kay stated she was privileged to confer this year's award on a procedure man, a 'Yes' man, a whizz at technology and above a jolly Rotarian. In his two short years as a club member, John Maker has supported the Stirling Farmers Market raffle, supported the weekly club meetings and created procedures, that will help safeguard our club documents for the future.

Kay called on Pat Fosbery to present the 2023-2024 Graham Fosbery President's Award.
