The first attempt in 1910 to officially sanction the involvment of women in Rotary was unsuccessful and it was not until 1989 that the Constitution and Bylaws were changed and women were officially welcomed into Rotary.
Late in 1995 June Mills and Astrid Windfuhr were inducted as members of the Rotary Club of Dunedin by President Stuart Melville.
June maintained her very active membership until 2020 and during that time had the distinction of being the first woman to chair a committee, and the first woman President (2001-02)
June is well known and respected in  Dunedin as former manager of Glenfalloch gardens, but perhaps even more so as Fundraiser and Project Manager for the Cancer Society for 30 years. She received a Queens Service Medal for services to the community in 2013.
In recognition of Junes contribution to our club and to the community, and to reflect the esteem in which we hold her, Life Membership was conferred on June at our Changeover meeting last week.
