It is with much sadness that District Governor Grant Hocking reports that PRIP Sir Clem Renouf passed away last night.
As a founding member and charter secretary of the Rotary Club of Nambour, Sir Clem became District Governor in 1965-66, and went on to serve as    President of Rotary International in 1978-79.
Sir Clem was a giant in Rotary history as the instigator of the 3-H program that led to the polio eradication effort. We know him as the person who started the goal of Polio Eradication.
What a tragic loss, but what a fantastic life that impacted and bettered the lives of those around him and around the world.
Sir Clem made a difference and changed lives now and into the future.
Everyone in the Rotary world and more broadly will be saddened by this news but also thankful that we were connected through Rotary.
Details of his funeral are unknown at this time, but I will keep you updated as details come to hand.
