Vale - Gordon McKern OAM

It is with great sadness that our club acknowledge the passing of Past District Governor, Gordon McKern OAM.
 
Gordon’s contribution to the local community has been immeasurable over the years but from our club’s perspective we wish to recognise the enormity of Gordon’s influence and guidance for our members since he originally joined in 1976.  As a club member, board member, President, representing our club at District level to then the role of D9800 Governor in 1992/93.  It was during his role of DG that Gordon’s passion put the Rotary House Project on the map – his pet project as he often referred to it as.  Recently Rotary House again became a focus as it enters its next phase, this new development that again Gordon was ‘absolutely delighted’ to support.
 
Gordon’s support of the Rotary Foundation has long been recognised throughout the broader Rotary Community along with his outstanding willingness to support and further many Rotary causes.
 
Gordon has received many accolades over the years but the recognition afforded him in 2019 – the Rotary Service Above Self Award – was indeed very special, being only one of 100 awarded internationally in any given year.
 
Gordon we thank you sincerely for your devotion to the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk and the impact you had both locally and internationally.   We know you enjoyed your involvement, so did we – you will be missed.
