Firstly let me say that between Past President Greg and Sergeant Graeme and the great job they did no one noticed the absence of our President.
 
OK, so last week we had the pleasure of Greg Peck and Roger Thornton giving us a very interesting talk on their recent trip to Balibo.
 
It was very informative and gave us all a true look into what it is like in Balibo not just for the children but for everyone. 
 
It was good to see a number of partners and guests attend our meeting and I am sure we all walked away with a much better understanding about life in Balibo.
 
 
There was no Jokers Wild this week and I guess it will start again in the next few weeks and lets hope no wins anything before I get back and that the pot builds. 
 
Oh and by the way from now until January our Past President Greg will be filling in for me whilst I take a break to South America.
 
So from me and my wife have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
 
Your Scribe Editor and Secretary.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
 
Our Rotary Shed has received a face lift and as can be seen below it is now very clear as to whose shed it is and that we do exist.
 
Well done Ian Wake for getting this done so quickly.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen,   
 
There will be no meeting for us on Melbourne Cup Day and there will also be NO combined meeting with Bunyip/Garfield on the Wednesday as they have cancelled their meeting for the week as well.
 
So you can all have the week off and simply relax and enjoy your selves.
 
 
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.
 
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
