Original SFI Members

This is a senior male group that has existed for quite a number of years. In keeping with changing times with existing members getting on in years & dwindling in number, we are taking steps to review & make changes. The object is to make it more meaningful & exciting rather than just meeting for a meal.

Some of the changes will be to include female membership, to introduce games & fun for social integration like mahjong & karaoke, visiting places & having guest speakers. Also, to introduce a nominal annual membership fee, fines session to help boost club fund for absentees (AWOL) & for whatever reasons that can be plausibly presented.

The Club may need to be registered with regular meetings (weekly or fortnightly). A team of office bearers to be elected annually.

We like to get your inputs of ideas. I can further think of introducing social dancing, health & exercise programs to make us stay strong & healthy & to live longer.

The word “fraternity” means valued friendship and mutual support within a group: the ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity.

Who would be qualified to join? This is essential a social club & naturally we expect you to like people, meeting faces, visiting places & eating delicious, friendly, smiling with a cheerful disposition, easy & free to mix, spontaneous & adaptable, co-operative & helpful.

Australia is no different, where the key word is multiculturalism. From the humanitarian prospective, a would be club like ours coul be uniquely placed & history in the making. Are you thinking of leaving behind arich legacy for your future generations & be proud of you?

I am pretty sure you have heard of such service clubs as Rotary, Lions Club, Apex Clubs & Jaycees. In addition to humanitarian service, they enjoy fellowship and develop leadership skills. Lions began in the United States in 1917 when a group of independent clubs responded to an idea presented to them by a young Chicago insurance agent, Melvin Jones.

In the case of Rotary, the world’s first service club was founded on 23 February 1905 when lawyer Paul Harris and three friends met in a small office in downtown Chicago. They named their new club “Rotary” to describe the practice of meeting in rotation at the members’ various places of business.

We are proud to say that is well represented here in the realm of humanitarian services. The first Apex Club was formed at Geelong in December 1930 when three architects attempted to join the Rotary Club of Geelong. As Rotary has a rule restricting one profession to each club the three architects – Ewan Laird, Langham Proud and John Buchan went on to form The Young Businessmen’s Club of Geelong.

Notifications & general correspondences will be via WhatsApp (preferably/email).
