NO meeting report was provided for last week but I can tell you that we inducted two new members being Louise Carter and Louise Jackel and we do hope they both enjoy their time with us at the Rotary Club of Pakenham.
 
 
We also had Jokers Wild and of course everyone was very pleased to see that Roger, even though he is thought to be a Joker, could not find the Joker in the deck and as such the prize jackpots.
 
 
We were privileged to have as guest speaker Jeffah Thabach who told us all about his journey from the South Sudan to eventually end up as a resident in Pakenham and of the struggle that not only he faced but also the South Sudanese community in our Shire.   It was an amazing story and Jeffah should be very proud of what he has achieved and we wish him nothing but prosperity  and happiness for the future.
 
  
Well the Pakenham Show has been and gone and went.
 
Yes the Rotary Club of Pakenham  once again was part of the Wally Wombat Trail at the Show, even though we did not officially see Wally the Wombat there are people who say they saw someone who was as large as Wally Wombat and just as slow but we can not be sure.
 
Many thanks to Tim Mepstead, Ian Wake, Peter Rowlands and Grant and Linda Austen for manning our stand for the day and not only promoting Rotary but also our upcoming Car Show.
 
  
 
                                                                           
As an ongoing reminder, I’d like to reiterate the goals that I will be working towards for the next 12 months and they include:
  1. Greatly enhancing our profile & public image in the community through “action” based activities & collaboration with other groups and stakeholders.
  2. Greater involvement with local youth groups, schools and partner initiatives using social media, as these young people will be the Rotarians of the future
  3. Building on the successes of our current programs & annual events through word of mouth promotion, visibility and community discussion.
  4. If we get that all working well we will then be well on our way to my club goal of bringing in 5 new members over the next 12 months because people will be seeing us out in the community, having fun and making a difference and they will want to be part of that.
  5. 3 Members attending Rotary Leadership training
  6. 10 Members attending District conference
