Presidents Ponderings:
 
It feels like an eternity since we had our last club meeting. The murder mystery partners night was very well attended and a great time was had by all. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that the guilty party was Geoff Young, he always was a shady character. Thank you to everyone who participated & got into the spirit with their costumes. It was a great celebration and a fun time for all.
 
Last week was the annual P.B. Ronald presentation dinner held at the Pakenham Racing Club. While the number of Rotarians attending was down on previous years we did have a good representation and it was an inspiring & enjoyable night. Congratulations to the winners:
  1. Chevonne Willis
  2. Giorgi Boucher
  3. Michael Casey
  4. Ilan Osman
  5. Benjamin Fox
 
The P.B. Ronald Trust was established in 1991 with the support of the Rotary Club of Pakenham, Shire of Pakenham (Cardinia), Pakenham Racing Club & the Pakenham & District Agricultural & Horticultural Society to perpetuate the memory of the late Peter Ronald.
An amount of $39,000 was initially raised and put into the trust. The trust was formed to assist people futhering their education in agriculture, horticulture and local government. Over the years more than 80 people have benefited and almost $100,000 has been distributed from the trust. Congratulations to all the trust members for all their work and to the Pakenham Rotary Club for supporting the trust and inspiring the next group of leaders.
 
Coming up in the next few weeks for our club we have:
  1. Special guest speaker – Doug Baxter – Sportism 14th August
  2. Big Boys BBQ Lunch on the 17th
  3. DG Janne Spiers visit on the 21st August
  4. Bebutante Balls Friday 24th & Saturday 25th August.
 
Have a great week everyone.
 
Cheers
 
Goran
OK, so this coming Friday the 17th of August we will be doing our thing in the front of the Cardinia Cultural Centre cooking the BBQ for the Big Boys Lunch so if you have volunteered to be there then make sure you come in Club Uniform.
 
For those of you that have the time but have not committed to assist come down and see the boys provide the first public display of our new club uniform.
 
And I bet all the boys will look good in the FUCHSIA coloured uniforms.
Our Club has a supply of Rotary Theme Badges for this year and so if you want to purchase one,
then simply contact the Secretary and he can supply you with one for the simple low price of $6.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen,
 
Our Director in charge of Youth and Vocational Services, Josie Wilson has asked that we give serious thought to RYLA so click on the link below to get further information.
 
 
RYLA is a three day residential high energy program for young leaders aged of 18 and 25
 
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program includes thought provoking plenaries, discussion moderators, and professional facilitators from many disciplines. Discussions and experiential sessions focus on what leadership is, qualities of leadership, team-building activities, time and stress management.
 
Graduates of previous RYLA programs report the course was fantastic opportunity to develop their skills, have fun, and meet an enthusiastic group of like-minded people. RYLA is a life changing experience, so take the challenge and apply today.
