Mick Morland – Rotary Club of Berwick Tribute – BY PDG Tim Moore
 
Since December 1994 Mick Morland has been a reliable and hardworking club member for the Rotary Club of Berwick.   He served on many committees during his time in Rotary – public relations, youth, membership, business dinner and golf day fund raisers to name a few.
 
His linkages with the City of Casey ensured the Club was able to do the maximum for the local community, entering into partnerships that provided picnic tables and the Rotary Rotunda in Pioneer Park, a rotunda in Buchanan Park and ongoing work with the Casey North Community Information & Support Service, the Australia Day festivities at Pioneer Park and the Carols by Candlelight celebrations in Berwick.
 
Mick served as president of the Rotary Club of Berwick in 2012-13 helping grow the club to where it is today.   Mick and his wife Kay hosted many a Rotary Youth Exchange Student -students from around the world that shared that were treated to family life and hospitality during their time in Australia.   Mick has been recognised as a Paul Harris Fellow by his Rotarian colleagues for his community work in and out Rotary. 
 
Mick was a great enthusiast of Inner Wheel, supporting Kay in her many ventures.  Another way he brought people and organizations together.
 
Above all, Mick Morland was a great club member and a friend to all.  He welcomed all new comers to the club and upheld the ideals of Rotary to do good in the world.   He has had an enormous impact on the success of the Rotary Club of Berwick over the last 23 years and has many close friends in the club.  
 
Our members share the shock of this tragedy with his family and friends throughout our community locally and internationally.  He will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
 
PP Mick will be farewelled on Wednesday 5th July at Berwick Church of Christ at 10.30am (446 Centre Rd, Berwick).  Afterwards, friends and family will gather at the Berwick Church of Christ.
 
The family has requested donations in lieu of flowers to the Casey Cardinia Foundation.
