I take this opportunity to inform the House about a fantastic community organisation in my electorate of McPherson—the Rotary Club of Kirra Currumbin. I recently had the pleasure of attending the club's 47th changeover dinner and was once again reminded of their generosity and invaluable contribution. Charted in 1967 the club has been investing in our local community, particularly our youth, for almost 50 years. This investment has returned immeasurable dividends. The positive impact that this small club has had on our community and its individuals is evidence of the big heart inside each of its members.

Whether it is sponsoring accommodation for the homeless, sponsoring exchange students, supporting a teacher in Tanzania or helping locals in need, the Rotary Club of Kirra Currumbin is a grassroots organisation determined to do good for the southern Gold Coast. Its members, who selflessly devote their time and energy to the club's humanitarian and goodwill endeavours, are to be congratulated for their hard work and commitment. I thank each of them for their contribution to our community.

Finally, I would like to congratulate Diane Anderson, the President, John Best, the Treasurer, Gloria Tranby, the Secretary, and Marian Cighton, committee member, on their recent appointments to leadership roles. I thank each of them for continuing the valuable work and legacy of the Rotary Club of Kirra Currumbin.
