Rosebud Village Resident Pam Rowler, Commonwealth Games Torchbearer

Pam Rowler, Rosebud Village resident will carry the Commonwealth Games Torch when it passes through Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula on Monday 12th February 2018.

Pam was nominated for the honour by a fellow member of the local RSL for her years of contributions to the community. “My parents were very community minded and I guess it rubbed off on me as they believed that what you put into your community you received back and so began my life of helping our community”, said Pam

She adds that she couldn’t have done it all without the help of her husband Les and their children who quickly learnt how to cook and help around the house. Pam is a life member of Dromana Fire Brigade and Dromana Football Club. She is also a committee member for the Australia Day committee, Safety Beach Probus Club, MP National Servicemen’s Association and Dromana Red Hill RSL. She has also supported local schools for 25 years teaching Debutante sets to students. Along with these many achievements Pam also received a Flinders Senior Award from the Hon. Greg Hunt in 2015.

Asked about the best thing about getting involved in the local community, she states, “You meet some very interesting people.”

Pam has already received her uniform and will receive a replica torch that she can treasure after the event. 

Join us at Rosebud Village on Friday 16th February 2018 from 2pm to hear more from Pam. For catering purposes, RSVP here today.
