Former President of Pampangueño Club Lydia John was recently honoured as Paul Harris Fellow for her outstanding work “who over a number of years has devoted a great deal of time and effort to the ideals of goodwill, peace and understanding, and the relief of human suffering,” thus said David Bennett, President of Rotary Club of Central Brimbank, during the awarding. The presentation of the award also coincides with Rotary Central Brimbank’s 37th anniversary.

Bennett, in his introduction of John as awardee, described her as a quiet achiever, “no fuss, no dramas, she just gets on with doing things.” Her reputation precedes her, having been honoured with a “Pride of Australia” award in 2009 and a

Multicultural award in 2011 for her services to the community. She has devoted 30 years of service to her community in the Philippines, and when she migrated to Australia in 1980, she joined Filipino organisations and helped raise funds for disadvantaged Filipinos back home. Bennett exulted John’s balancing act of serving the community, while being a devoted mother and wife.

John was awarded with a certificate, medallion, and pin. The award, named in honour of Rotary founder Paul Harris, is given to people who exemplify the ideals of Rotary and is made possible through the donations that the club and its members make to the Rotary Foundation each year.
