Last week Lucia Cardamone provided an expert’s guide to the mysteries of Facebook as a tool for promotion of our Rotary Club and attraction of new members.
Lucia has been a member of the Rotary Club of Malvern for 20 years, and has been with the Nutrimetics cosmetics direct marketing company for 45 years. Started as a party plan company, social media is critically important for them.

Key points from Lucia were:

  • Just ‘liking’ a Facebook post does nothing.
  • It is necessary to like, comment and share a post to activate the Facebook algorithm that generates momentum for a post.

Comments must be more than 3 words for Facebook algorithm to be activated.

Lucia explained that the Club’s Facebook Page is like the Club’s advertisement. We should encourage members to like comment and share posts from members’ businesses and other clubs.


Last Wednesday a group of Rotarians and guest volunteers spent the day dismantling the rather large playground at Ivanhoe Park. Many thanks to Banyule Council for providing temporary storage and contractor Citiwide for transporting the playground components to the storage site. Once the Rotary DIK site is reopened (lockdown restrictions lifted) we will need to move the playground pieces to the Rotary container in Brooklyn so it can be shipped to Sri Lanka.

This week’s guest will be Bruce Anderson, District 9790 Governor 2020-21.
