OK so last week we had several visitors who talked to us and the first was Harpreet Singh who came back to ask us to support the SIKH temple and vote for it in the State Goverment PICK MY PROJECT grants.
 
 
Then we were introduced to a visiting Rotarian from Zimbabwe in Grace Dzwairo
 
 
Then we had Guest Speakers from the Magical Getaway Foundation in Rosemary Teed who told us about what has been going on since her last visit back in November
 
 
Accompanying Rosemary was Teague Rook who told us about the Family Holiday to Lorne that they provided to a Single Mum and her four Boys.  Teague also presented the Club with a Certificate of Appreciation for our support.
 
   
 
It was amazing to see how much it meant to this family to actually have a holiday even if it rained for most of the week while they were down at Lorne.
 
Of course everyone one was happy when the Joker did not make it on to the Train and our Greg Peck missed out, so the pot still grows.
 
 
Glad to see Greg smiling with out the Joker in his hand.
 
Well that is a brief summary of last week session except to say that once again Sam filled in for Sir Graeme and did a great job of running the fines session even to the point of standing up on the stage so we could actually see him and increasing the coffers by at least $10.  Well done Sam!!!!!!!!
 
OK, so that is all for now hope to see you all on Tuesday Night.

                                Everyone at Pakenham Rotary

                              Let Greg know that you're coming
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
