President's Report 2nd December 2017


President Report Dec 2nd

Last week ended with our club cooking sausages at Bourke Park supporting the White Ribbon Family Day. This year’s event focused on children’s voices and experiences in domestic violence situations. Every child has the right to feel safe where they live, learn and play. The theme “Safe Kids – Safe Communities” is I feel a very important issue that needs all the support it can get. Unfortunately for the organizers the numbers were low and we had a surplus of sausages which we donated to the 4C’s Crisis Relief Centre in Pakenham, who gratefully accepted them to distribute to where it needed most.

Last Tuesday we had Haydn Thompson and Rob Nobelius from the Pakenham Golf Club update us on the development happening at the Golf Course. It is a very exciting project that will be a great community asset.



Oh and of course the Jokers Wild did not go off again and Bill was left holding the 6 of Spades, so jackpot increases and we keep looking for that elusive Joker.


On Thursday I had the pleasure of attending Minaret College Grade 6 Graduation, where Rotary supported the College by awarding there Community Service Award. We stayed for super and had an interesting talk with the Principal where he talked about the future vision of the school.

The trailer raffle rolls along smoothly, thank you to all those members who have given their time to fill the roster. Only 3 weeks till the draw, so I am looking forward to seeing a full roster.

Last Friday I attended our Melbourne South East District Governor’s Presidents gathering in Narre Warren. We are planning to organize a large fund raising event. Possibly a Cabaret Dinner with The Blues Brothers playing at the new Bunjil Place at Narre Warren. Let me know your thoughts on this. Also there is a possibility to have a movie night at Fountain Gate with a new release film.

Thanks about all for now,
