President’s Report 15 April 2018
 
Hi All.
 
Well, we are half way through April and have successfully run our Car Show together with R.C. Bunyip
Garfield last Sunday. I think everyone is very pleased with the great result. A big thank you to everyone
who helped on the day, making this a success. The Car Show Committee has asked for suggestions to
improve the day. Please put any of your ideas you have to improving this event to our secretary Grant.
Alan did a great job running our community dance, filling in for Ian.
 
The District Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) sessions started on Saturday with some of our Members
attending at Nossal High School Berwick. It is not too late to get involved as this course can be started
and completed in the future at your own pace. The Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared
towards the modern Rotarian’s busy schedule.
 
The Epilepsy Essentials Education meeting night we had together with the Inner Wheel Club of
Pakenham was well attended with over forty participants. Our presenter Louise Nicholas gave a very
informative and educational session on the various signs and symptoms of Epilepsy and how to
administer the best first aid. For more information about this, their web site is :-
https://www.epilepsy.org.au .
 
I look forward to seeing you all next Tuesday to hear Councilor Michael Schilling – Cardinia Shire Youth
Councilor Program Coordinator.
 
Lastly, the Inner Wheel Convention held in Melbourne was a great success with some of our Rotarians
also attending.
 
Yours in Rotary,
 
Greg Peck
The Rotary Club of Berwick and Nossal High School have combined to create a new event, the South East Feast. Rotary's share of this event will be directed to Mental Health First Aid. We would love to see you, your friends and family there. Read on if you would like to know more otherwise please disregard this email.
 
The South East Feast is a major annual celebration of multicultural food, music and fun.  It is a family-friendly community event to be hosted by the Rotary Club of Berwick and Nossal High School.  It is to be held from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday 21st April 2018 at Nossal High School (behind Federation University, Clyde Road, Berwick)
Interspersed among the food trucks and stalls presenting authentic cuisine from the many different cultural groups that make up our thriving community will be locally produced gourmet products, craft beers and wines from the South East and Gippsland Gourmet Regions to try and to buy.
Plenty of tables and seating will be available for people to enjoy a central stage which will play host to a succession of musical performances. There will be interactive activities, buskers, cultural exhibitions, cooking demonstrations and amusements to entertain both young and old.  Children will also be entertained by a petting zoo, face painting and amusement rides.  A highlight of the day will be the lunchtime performance by a Chinese Dragon.

The entry fee is $5 per adult/child over 12 or $10 for a family.  Grand Ridge Brewery, one of our major sponsors, is providing a major $2,000 gate prize.
The event is a fundraiser for the school and the Rotary Club of Berwick.  Rotary’s share of the proceeds will be directed to Mental Health First Aid. 
Event information and the latest updates are available via the SE Feast websiteFacebook, and Instagram .
