Rotary International reminds us that we can all make an important contribution to vocational service by encouraging vocational excellence and the practice of high ethical standards in all occupations and to recognise those individuals who exemplify the Rotary ideal of service in the workplace or through volunteer service.
The types of vocational service more recently, in which committed individuals have been honoured by our Rotary Club of Salamanca have come from many sectors .
- Disease and Disability e.g. Tad Tas for its “Freedom Wheels “program & Parkinson’s Tasmania for its growth of a 24 access phone line and service for clients
- Aged Care-e.g. development of an effective pain management clinic in a nursing home ,an innovation for its time
- Real Estate- e.g. excellence in customer service
- The Arts- e.g. the Conservatorium of Music, for its state wide community development and initiatives enabling many local community members to participate in music learning and playing.
- Hospitality ,one restaurant in particular – e.g. for excellence in attentive customer service and reputedly excellent food and meals.
- Diabetes education
