So our club meeting last week was a Club Service meeting and we were given reports on various aspects of the club from the following people:
Greg Peck                                      Secretary's Report
Alan Chalmers                              Treasurer's Report
Ian Wake                                        Community Service Report 
Josie Wilson                                  Youth & Vocational Report
Ken Rook                                        Public Relations and Membership Report
There was no report for Foundation and International due to George Blenkhorn's absence.
We were also given updates by other members of the club on various things such as a report on our duties for the Pakenham Cup Day, which was provided by Peter van Diemen.
We also had a Jokers Wild session and to say that everyone was happy that Sam Biondi was unable to find the joker would be an understatement.
Our President  Elect also gave a presentation about the status of Our Club and some high level details of a proposal that will be submitted to the members for consideration at our AGM in November.   The proposal talked about changing the structure of our Board and also setting some guidelines about how the club should proceed into the future with regard to our the gap between the very experienced members of our club and the relatively sizable number of members with very little or no rotary experience.  There was some very enthusiastic discussions around this presentation and the President Elect promised to send a copy of the presentation to every member of the club.
The discussions ended up causing our meeting to go later than normal but no one seemed to want to leave.
I think we can say that a good night was had by all and there certainly was a lot of communication.
