Hi All,
 
What a start to the year weather wise, hope everyone has been slapping on the sunscreen and enjoying the fabulous Melbourne weather. As you are aware unfortunately I have to be on a cruise for the next 2 weeks sailing around NZ and Tasmania and can’t be with you but it’s a sacrifice I’m happy to make. It’s been a great beginning to the year with the visit to the new Golf Club premises and  Shelton’s cool store. It really is impressive what we have in our local community. Well done to Roger, Ken & Ian for organizing everything. While I’m away you will be in the more than capable hands of Past President Greg Peck, who will be taking the next couple of meetings. Australia day is also fast approaching and if it is anything like last year we will again have a huge role to play and further promote our club and the Rotary brand. George is doing a great job in coordinating the day so please assist where you can.
 
Don’t forget that conference is only a few weeks away now, thank you to everyone who had already registered and for those unsure it is still not too late register. It will be an amazing few days and provide a great stimulus for the rest of the year.
 
Have a great couple of weeks everyone & I’ll see you all in early February.
 
 Coming up:
 
  1. Brian Morris – District Youth Protection
  2. Saturday 26th: Australia Day @ Cardinia Cultural Centre
  3. Tuesday 29th: Rebecca Hogan – StrokeSafe
  4. Feb 15th: District Conference
 
Cheers

Fellowship – Conversation - Collaboration

 

 

Well I am certain that everyone who attended last week had a really good time and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality offered by Keith and Susan Shelton. 
 
It was extremely pleasant having a lovely Pot Roast Dinner with everyone having plenty to eat including very nice Coleslaw etc.
 
Keith was generous enough to show us around the Coolstore and give us an insight into the history of the place and it certainly had some history.
 
It was great to see so many members and guests turn up on a lovely balmy night and it certainly ensured we had some really good fellowship as well.
 
Here are a couple of Photos from the night
 
     
 
The photos are of course courtesy of Ken Rook.
 
You can check out all the photos in our photo gallery via this link photoalbums/january-15th-2019   
 
So once again a huge thank you to Keith and Susan Shelton for their hospitality and to Ian Wake for organising the great night.
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
