SO last week was the first meeting for the new Rotarian year and to start the night we had a short presentation from our friends
in the Sudanese community seeking assistance.
 
 
We then had our President talk about his vision for the year and we were also blessed to hear from our own AG Geoff Young.
 
  
 
We also had another draw for Jokers Wild and this time it was Louise Jackel who could not find the Joker and so the money continues to jackpot.
 
 
We then finished the evening off with our first Sergeant's session under our new Sgt Fish or Stephen Fisher for those
more formal and it closed of an interesting evening.
 
 
So the Editor received this e-mail and information and so we share it with you.
 
Please could you include the attached flyer and information, if possible, in the next couple of Scribes……..
 
I am writing to let you know about a local fundraising concert to assist people affected by the recent bushfires in the Tonimbuk area.
 
Some musical, generous and caring people have banded together to organise a concert at Gumbuya World on Saturday 3rd August 1.00pm – 4.00pm with all proceeds to go to the Tonimbuk people affected by the fires.
 
Please read the Concert Flyer and further information. The cost is $10.00 per person or $20.00 for a family of 4. You do not have to pay any extra fee to enter Gumbuya World who are donating the cost of the venue for the event.
 
To book tickets https://www.trybooking.com/521311   or pay on the day😊
 
I have been singing with the Maryknoll Fire Choir for 2 years (something that has put me way out of my comfort zone when it comes to concerts) and I hope this event will be a huge fundraising success.
 
Please do contact me if you have queries.
 
Thank you for your time and patience to read my email.
 
Yours IN Friendship
 
Cheers Helen

Supporting the Recovery 

 

It’s just over three months since fires raced through the Bunyip State Park, and impacted on our neighbouring communities to the north east. Twenty-nine homes were destroyed, along with numerous sheds, over 500 km of fencing and many more properties.  People lost their homes, their livelihood, tools, hay and much more. With winter now set in, there is still a long way to go along that journey of recovery for all those people impacted. 

 

Those of us spared from this disaster, are grateful as always for the courageous and selfless work of our local CFA brigades, and brigades that travelled some distances to fight the flames. We also appreciate the efforts of the Forest Fire Management Teams.  

 

An opportunity is being provided for people to contribute financially to those who have suffered from the fires, by attending an upcoming extraordinary afternoon of music. 

Further donations can be given through the trybooking site

Upcoming Extraordinary Afternoon Event  

Saturday, 3 August 2019 

Featuring: The Dusty Millers, The Swamp Dogs, & The Maryknoll Fire Choir 

 

The Dusty Millers is a unique collaboration of three intimately connected and highly respected voices: 

Lisa Miller-9-time Aria nominated renowned singer-songwriter 

Tracey Miller-soul jazz queen, Director Maryknoll Fire Choir 4 years and  

Loretta Miller– Lead singer, Jazz Party;4 world tours with "Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes". 

 

Each of these women are established artists in their own right. Their distinctive voices blend to create a rare and very moving sound with their perfect three part harmonies, and giving classic songs a beautiful twist, and breathing new life to some of Lisa and Tracey's original songs. 

They will be joined on stage by one of Melbourne’s finest guitarists, Sam Lemann.

This concert has come about because of Tracey’s association with the people of Maryknoll through the Choir, At the time of the fires, she offered The Dusty Millers to perform free of charge at a benefit for those effected. 

 

The Swamp Dogs: a Gippsland band featuring an eclectic set of music and infuse their own flavour from rollicking foot-tappers to beautiful ballads.

 

Band Members: Greg Mackinnon - Rythym guitar; Chris Page - Lead guitar/lap steel/harmonies; Kingsley Price - Keys/Fiddle; Andy Clementson – Bass; Peter Koryn – Drums; Bones Mackinnon -Vox
