Keilor Rotary Club Makes a Difference in Wycheproof

CITY-BASED David Bourke has made a big difference to Wycheproof, writes GENEVIEVE BARLOW in the Weekly Times

Ambassadorships usually come after a time in the diplomatic corp, learning the art of diplomacy. They're important titles; their bearers play key roles linking and representing people from another country or place. So it is with David Bourke.
David lives in Keilor, works in Alphington near the heart of the city, and travels 80,000km a year around the state in his job in recycling for Amcor, but he's also the unofficial ambassador for the town of Wycheproof, a world away in northwestern Victoria.
Laugh not, for his role has brought great riches to the little town of about 700 people, one of the few in more isolated areas in Victoria beyond the magic 1.5-hour city limits that's recording a rise in its school population.

"We gave David an ambassador award; it's for people who don't live in the community, but who do so much for us," says resident Jacinta Miller. "It's a service-above-self award." The relationship began many years ago when David, whose family owned the meatworks at nearby Donald in the '70s, suggested to his Rotary Club at Keilor (where he was the then president) that they put something into a country area.
